Ahh yes, winter. Not like they used to be, but we still get enough snow that an old fart like me has to keep a snow thrower around. With anything mechanical, of course, there will be fixing to do. After burning out the belt doing some heavy wet snow I decided I would show how it is changed. Sometimes it’s a pain in the butt. This is two fixes after two attempts at using it. I am hoping that’s it for the year as far as fixing goes.

This is a weird post for a woodworking site, but who knows, there are probably a lot of snowed in woodworkers out there who will benefit from your belt changing tutorial. Luckily we just have rain here for the time being.

It’s a “workshop” not a “wood shop” lol. Without that piece of equipment, I wouldn’t be able to get out there at all for periods of time, so, it’s kind of an essential for my shop. Perhaps someday the shop electrical will be put in properly and there will be heat in there too, so I can enjoy it more in the winter. There will be postings on those events too…lol.

I probably should not call my shop a ‘work’shop since I seem to do very little work in it these days.

When I built my shop I insulated everything and eventually added a heat pump. I did this because at the time I had to do a lot of yard work in the spring and summer to keep my wife from leaving me, and I knew that the fall and winter months would be my only opportunity to devote a lot of time to woodworking.

I was born and lived in Wisconsin in my younger years and still remember all the snow. I thought Norway would be the same, but found out that we get mostly wind and rain all winter in our part of the country. My youngest son lives in the North of Sweden and he uses most of his spare time removing snow with his snow thrower and other tools to clear his roof. I guess I got lucky!
