Re: Anchor roller

I second Karen's recco.

Our pin broke/fractured just inside. 

A machinist ground the outside welds of the he pin and it was all removed in less than 10 minutes.

He then cut two SS washers from 2 inch round stock, approx 2mm thick and milled it for the exact size of the replacement pin. He welded these onto the sides to give lots of reinforcement and the fabricated a new removable pin.

I believe that the welding made the original SS pin brittle causing it to break over time.
