    Cotter pins

    I maintain and service a dish accumulater that is about 8 years old and the cotter pins that hold the tray holders are breaking causing mayhem at the middle school lunch room. I tried using what the on-site mechanic had in stock but those broke too. Is there a strongest, longest lasting pin out there?

    Maybe a washer to relieve wear on the cotter pin.
    If you were a real tech, you'd solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    Check McMaster Carr book all sorts of material and strengths. Is there play in hole that pin goes in? That comes into play if there is movement also.
