Rusty Jammed Rebar Cutter - Restoration

  • Publicado el Hace 2 años

    my mechanicsmy mechanics

    In this video i'm restoring a hopeless case of a super rusty rebar cutter.

    People from all over the world send me pictures of their items they'd like to have restored by me in a video. Mostly the items do not look bad enough, not enough rust or not broken enough for an interesting video. However this rebar cutter caught my attention from the first look at it. Marco from Italy was so nice to ship it to me to Switzerland, he gave me this shear for free means he doesn't want to have it back. Thank you very much for that. Right when I saw the pictures I knew this would probably be a very challenging restoration because of all that rust. I assumed that it would be all seized up and a nightmare to disassemble and I was right. This cutter only has four bolts and is built together by only five parts, but I was busy with the disassembling for three days. It was very difficult to get the two big bolts out, specially the smaller one. It needed 12 tons on the hydraulic press and I needed to drill one bolt hollow. I made a lot of parts new on this project, I've only kept three parts original: the body and the two moving parts. As the handle was missing, I made a new one which required quite a few steps of machining, welding and grinding but the end result turned out very nice. As I almost made the whole thing new I decided to give this tool a modern touch with the choice of colour, that's why I went with orange.

    I hope you like my work and the video.

Two questions: why did you not de-rust the whole thing prior to disassembly? You did in other videos and it worked quite well. Second one, why did you not use filler prior to painting? I am very ignorant on this topic so I was wondering if there are proper reasons for that or it was just a stylistic choice.

Not being rude here, but there's only a few actual nuts and bolts and then like 3 main pieces. Plus everything is easier when you record yourself taking it apart so you can look back to how it was assembled and where the pieces go. As you should. Like taking a picture of your drum brakes before replacing them.

I think restoration won't be rentable again. Why? Because restoration like we saw in the video require a lot of work, experience and practice all of that must be part of the price of restoration and people won't pay that money. Why to restore the old rebar cutter for few hundreds of dollars, euro whatever if You can buy a new one a lot cheaper.

You can remove zinc plating quite easily using 15% hydrocloric acid solution. Be carefull for it is a very exothermic (violent) reaction. Emerge it for a few minutes and the iron parts are left untouched. Hydrogen gass is emitted, so don't smoke indoors ;) Love you making your own parts though
