    Toshiba E-Studio 305se Drive unit

    Does anyone know where I can get a shear pin for this machine in the drive unit? Went to Ace Hardware and couldn't find one.
    Thanks in advance. Neil

    ... what do you think you are servicing? A snow blower?

    Launched in 2009, Toshiba Tec officially terminated all support on this model in April 2020.

    If I lost a pin and didnt have another one I have used a long thin screw with the head cut off, or a small piece if a allen wrench that fit through the hole. I have used a piece if a heavy duty paper clip. If the old pin was sheared you have more of a problem than just the pin.

    I used that same trick.

    You should have a small tackle box full of fiddly bits and doo-dads as part of your car stock.

    I carry a pill bottle full of things in my tool kit as well as a small tackle box of stuff out in the car...

    When a copier is setting in your bone yard and it's time to fully decommission it, steal things!

    screws, springs, clips, holders, switches, roll pins, bushings, bearings, wire, connectors, etc.

    Having these things handy will save you a return trip for that one silly bit or hardware that snapped or fell onto the carpet of oblivion.

    2 flat staples from the staple cart, cut to length, works like a charm.

    We have a store called Harbor Freight out here, they sell cheap Chinese items, of the same cheap quality. But they have these wonderful kits of pins, e-clips, springs, and various items which I always keep with me. The e-clips set alone has saved me at least 5 times.


    Failing to plan is planning to fail!!!
