From the makers of the world’s most popular housing repair sleeves: the EZE-Shims! Adopting the EZE-Shims in your shop will save you time, make you money and upgrade the quality of your shop’s housing repair.
When the situation calls for it, end bells need to have the bottom of the bore machined. This will cause the bearing to sit in a different location and can be problematic, especially if there is a bearing cap.
Traditionally, a machinist will cut out a piece of shim stock, or a couple different thicknesses of shim stock, to take up the play in the bore. This is time consuming and a low-quality way of dealing with the problem. Another huge disadvantage of using manually made shims is if the motor fails and the customer takes the motor apart, and sees the shims in there, they may be inclined to blame the failure on the shims or the housing repair in general.
With the EZE-Shims all the above problems are a thing of the past! Here’s how to use it:
Step 1: Select the right EZE-Shim ring and cut it out of the sheet.
Step 2: Measure the depth of the bore and add .010”. Take note of the number.
Step 3: When boring the end bell face the bottom of the bore to the depth calculated in Step 2.
Step 4: Insert the EZE-Shim during reassembly.
Each roll comes with two shims for the following bearing outside diameters (in millimeters): 19, 24, 32, 42, 52, 62, 72, 80, 90, 100, 110, 120, 130, 140, 150, 160, 170, 180, 190, 200, 215 and 230.
