2 second door hinge nut removal


Recommended Posts

The nuts on the door hinge are inevitably rusted together.  It can take months of penetrating fluid to get them off.  I'm impatient.  After 2 days of f**ting about I centre popped the locknuts in the direction of undo and pulled out my pneumatic hammer gun.  2 seconds later the locknut was undone, all of the others followed in a similar fashion and speed.  Job done except it took me a day to adjust them............

For mine in the Special I used a power saw and cut through the hinge pin, not too bad considering I was going to have to replace bobbins (loose in body) and pins (rusted beyond hope), I fear mine will be more than a day with the replaced bobbins, I may have even gone outside of tolerance. Only time will tell.
