  • Rewinding a Q siren video

    How to properly rewind a Q. I don't advocate using the butter knife, I would only use the Federal tool for rewinding, the part number is AL-BR549

    PLEASE be careful using the wrong tool.

    I agree on using the proper tool. I mean, the butter knife/screwdriver etc WORKS, but given the proper tool, it's much simper, and there's less of a chance of damaging anything.

        A left hand ball pein hammer, along with a left hand long slim slotted screwdriver and some azimuth grease works a hold lot better than the butter knife! Don't forget to use some timing oil on the shaft!

        Stay Safe and Well Out There....

            Wow, I've been winding ours the wrong direction this entire time. We've actually got a tuck-point trowel that we've always used to reach the vanes.

              A leatherman tool can be used in a pinch too.

                I stand by my statement. And if you are a union department, you BETTER use the right tool. I heard that my old buddy Schaitberger even has put out a memo about it.

                  We will be clarifying our SOG on this procedure at next weeks training. Dang, I think we have been doing this wrong all this time.
