You can say what you want, if you want to get into bashing other people's ideas; that's fine.

I don't know how long you have been running older equipment, but I would presume it is long enough to know that sometimes unconventional fixes need to be used.

In case you didn't read thoroughly enough let me reiterate the facts.

#1. The shaft would need to be removed and replaced or the end with the threads built up and rethreaded.

#2. The whole assembly is attached to the shaft with a bolt which will act as a shear bolt in the event the chain breaks or it is plugged. I was a little reserved about welding this solid, and wouldn't go recommending this for every slip clutch problem; but in this situation a backup situation does exist.

#3. This fix was done among others, I spent at least a week going over this machine. If I were to list all the repairs, improvements, etc; that were done before the machine went to the field it would take a page or so. This machine left the shop and harvested my 2012 corn crop without a single breakdown.

Thank you for your concern, but this was not a moronic farmer fix.

I been running old wornout equipment for my entire 'career'-over 35 years.So I am well adapt at some unconventional fixes.Welding slip clutches is not one of them.I just this spring bought a JD feeder house that was torn to holyhe!!.The conveyor chain is a wadded up mess(not repairable)The main shaft(1 1/2") is bent,the front drum shaft/bearing holder bent,as well as other damage.Dont know what happened-wheather the chain broke or they ran something through it.The slip clutch was rusted up and didnt slip,thus destroying the thing.So I 'm sorry for offending you when I read in horror of the welded clutch

The feeder house would be a completely different story. There is no give after the slip clutch on that application.

I am just telling you what worked for me, I appreciate your input on the subject. What I am trying to explain is that in this situation there is a mild steel bolt that would easily shear before damage was done, totally different than in most applications.
