The shaft went in when the flange bearings were loosened. The cotter pin had to be ground to fit the shaft and handle hub. I am going to drill new mounting holes in the base to match the base of my HF bender. I already have shields with bolts in the driveway and garage. Is this what you call a hijack????
DANG !! The HF base is wider. I can only reuse 1 hole. Out comes my best HF tool the 1" SDS hammer drill.
