My redneck fix is by know means a pretty fix. But it is still holding up on the 415 and just did it on the 475.

If you want some pics of the final stage I can get those. But the part where I mended, laced together, stitched the 2 parts with the #12 copper wire is all under the last stage of fix.

  Actually I had read about your fix and saw the pictures of the 415 that you repaired.  I believe is was broken the same way by shipping and in the same spot.   Really a shame, but that is one of the reasons I decided to start welding on these magesium cases, because things happen to good saws.  Oh by the way I know you had done alot of work on some 3750's and I believe you had 3 at one time.  I am looking for another one myself so if you come across something I am in the market.  Roger

The 415 was smashed by a tree on only it's 3rd time being used by a homeowner user just like me.

He then tried to have it  welded but whoever did it just made the metal brittle and it just fell apart around welded area aka blew a big hole through it basically.

I bought the 415 saw as a box of parts so I didnt have nothing to loose trying my redneck fix.

3750 what shape are you wanting?   You wanting TA editions purple covers or just a plain 3750 with black covers?

Anything that has a good cylinder.  I believe I could find the rest of the parts fairly easy.  So if you come across something let me know. 

  I did not know that about the 415 I thought it was broke in shipping also.  Well anyways thanks alot.

I moved most of the 3750 info with part numbers over to 3750 thread.


Pic of 415.  The weld just crumbled off taken some more case with it ( Someone tried to weld it before I got the box of parts, it didnt hold, it is just set there for pic).  My redneck wire job and fix is still cutting it today.

I'll get some pics of my ugly fixes on 415 475 later today.

Since were showing some welding this is a before and after I did today.  I believe it is a 5200 clutch cover.  The pitting is very shallow in the pics and will fill in easily and will not affect the integrity of the metal.

Redneck fixes.

Here is the 415. You can see the lighter grey JB I used on this one to help fill the voids that was blown through both pieces on the attempted weld.  It is wired together underneath then JB and then the steel putty.





Copper #12 house wire I found works really well and is mend-able  to form around.  About 2" pieces at a time.




Project 475. No JB was needed on this one. Just drill holes, wire and steel putty = redneck fix.  ;D

Must be nice to be able to weld.   8) 8)

I have a very old stick welder for emergency repairs and then it  looks like chicken poop. But as long as it holds I'm a happy camper.

Your fix looks to be strong and holding it together so that in the end the saw can still be used.  It gets the job done.
