Mower Head Rebuild

This week I step away from custom fabrication to do a rebuild of a mower head. The wear plates on the inside of this monster take quite a beating. I am cutting out the old wear plates and welding in new AR 500 plate, 1/2” thick! There are many other components to this project that I will share later. Before Before Ready for...

Automation

As robotics become more involved in manufacturing and warehouse organization, I see an increase in the demand for the fabrication of the bases in which the robots mount to. Since Merrimack County Customs was created in 2012 I have created bases for electronic cigarette manufacturing, mounting frames for robotic semi truck loading and unloading, and everything in...

Part Prepariation of a Rail Gear Assembly

I have always found that proper, clean part cutting and preparation ahead of fabrication is a much more efficient way of building something versus cutting the parts as you go. By working from a comprehensive set of drawings I am able to cut and prep my parts ahead of time. 3D drawing of a rail gear assembly Horizontal band saw cutting of 1” thick by 8” mild...

Lake Side Railings

This summer there has been a great boost in custom railing fabrication with in our business! We would like to highlight one of our favorite and most recent custom railings jobs by sharing a few pictures and some kind words from the very satisfied customer. ……………….. Jason,   These pictures do not do your railings justice. I came up today & saw the railings. I hate to say this but I was expecting very narrow railings & hand railings that I see at most houses (I guess they just use standard crap). I was amazed at the quality of the railings. The handrails are exactly what I wanted.   I really like the railings that go from that patio to the pond. They are simple but elegant. I can see why Nic recommends you.   Great job!   Kathy  ...

Mud Season Is Here!

Mud Season Is Here!

With the warmer weather moving in a lot of excavation and forestry crews are being slowed down by the mud, which means that our phones are ringing here at Merrimack County Customs! This window of opportunity is small and scheduling can be hectic, but we do our very best to assure that all of our customers, old and new are taken care of in a timely manor.   Below are some photos of recent repair and preventative maintenance projects we have completed.     Hard facing chipper paddles helps to enhance the longevity of this consumable part. We worked with a local machine shop to recreate the attachment point of the wood shear accumulator arm. While doing so we strengthened the original design and added replaceable brass bushing to eliminate the need for major work in the future. This excavator bucket was very close to needing major rebuild, but the operator/owner did the right thing and brought it by our shop to have new abrasive resistant wear bars (3/4″x4″) put on the bottom along with hard face build up on the tooth holders.     This loader bucket spent and entire summer on the side of Interstate 93 moving gravel as a part of the State of New Hampshire’s efforts to widen the highway. Due to the size of this bucket we were required to work remotely at the customers shop to replace the cutting edge, bucket bottom, side walls and then put a liner on top of the new floor to protect it. This project took approximately 50 hours to...
