Customer Question

I have a sears chipper/shredder and sharpened the blades this afternoon. After putting it back together it vibrates very wildly.

The problem is that the unit is out of balance.
YEs one of the hammers being broken will cause it to be out of balance.
You will need to replace the hammers .
Also the blades are NOT designed to be sharpened the are designed to be replaced. This could also add to the imbalance some.
