Re: [papercreters] PTO Mixer Photos sealing the vertical shaft

Thanks.  I'll hang onto this point for when I get to that point.

Hi Nori,

There is a piece of 1/8" tightly machined teflon that was put on the shaft, and then when the gear box was mounted to the horizontal mounting plate it was captured.  I'm also putting a piece of 1/16" rubber gasket between the bottom of the tank and the gear box mounting plate, captured by a piece of metal located inside the tank and bolted through the tank to the gear box mounting plate.  Hopefully the two combined will keep water out.  Also, I will store the tank so water doesn't collect arount the shaft.

Eric, what kind of seal do you have on the shaft between your gear box and the blade?
My gearbox looks very different than yours with a side mount, not a surface mount.  I've got a lot of cleaning up to do before I can think of mounting it.
I've uploaded the photo.  The access panel is on the (will be) bottom of the gear box.  The gearbox will need a vertical mounting surface.
