Instead of using nails, brass rods, etc, anybody wanting genuine shear pins for their efm stoker can send a check for $5.00 made out to: {ADDRESS REMOVED} and we'll send you 12 shear pins by return mail.

An extra short worm is a good investment, but may be a hard sell because most worms last for 20 years or more.



Five Bucks?

How bout a few pennys and a Stamped Self Addressed Envelope.

They can't be shipped in a regular envelope. Figure $2 for the padded envelope and postage and $3 for the pins, time to pack it, and address it, and we're performing a public charity. :P

Folk's time is worth something, and this isn't allowing anything for EFM! Thanks Chris, envelope inbound.....
How many gear cases or shafts have snapped from wet coal issues, broken or bent augers....usually on a holiday weekend when it is 25 below and you have a 3 foot snow storm.

We're also happy to replace broken parts for those who use nails. :)
