PROJECTS


Some of our projects have ranged from one off custom parts for a private customer to multiple orders for hard to find parts for various classic cars and bikes.

HELP WITH A LOCOMOTIVE RESTORATION

A group restoring a locomotive asked for assistance in manufacturing some new air filter frames for its intakes. Using an old frame 20 new frames was produced to help maintain and aid in future servicing. This was a group that I had room in the heart for, as the loco in question was named after a submarine that my dad served on in his navy days. It will be great to see this back on the tracks at some point.

See in the links to find the Renown Repluse Restoration Group for updates n their progress. 



REPAIRS


We can undertake repairs and remake components like these shafts for a classic Triumph motorcycle and a new aircraft tug drive shaft. The tug shaft made from EN24t and Tufftrided to give its hardness without comprimising its strength and spined to suit the mating gear.

STAINLESS STEEL BIER PINS

Custom bier pins for hearse decks and made from stainless steel in place of the old chipped chrome pins if looked after can last a lifetime. These can be made to order or to a pattern provided by the customer to match existing pins. other hearse deck parts can also be made to order such as rollers and plates.

MODIFIED/ CUSTOM CARS


Made to order bespoke items for custom and classic cars, bikes or even aircraft cockpit sections. From brake upgrades like a VW Type2 312mm rake kit to custom water hoses, oil fillers and carb linkage kits to suit one off engines. Bling parts like a stainless gear knob with built in clock an be made to customers requirements.

One that realy stands out is a complete custom dash for a show winning beach buggy. The customer came in with a cardboard template of a dash with an idea. Different concepts was put down and the outcome was a one off aluminium dash with a custom cnc machined speedo surround mirror polished and handbrake surrounfd to match. Now it stands out in a show as a real one off.

RE MANUFACTURE OF OBSOLETE COMPONANTS

A gearbox rebuild for a Herbert Capstan lathe using

refurbished

and new manufactured parts form patterns and maufacturers drawings.

a customer brought in a bent and what looked like a scrap casting off an aircraft. instruction was to remanufacture as a fabrication for a cockpit build project. The outcome was nearly perfect to the original albeit not for actual flight use but should be very impressive once the whole cockpit comes together.

Another was a custom 1922 race car with a siezed cam. we remanufactured the bronze bearing and line bored to suit the cam.

COMPRESSOR REBUILD


After Being asked to look at a compressor for charging dive tanks, we took on the challenge of rebuilding and remaking some of the parts that had broken. It came to us in two boxes of parts that had been left from the previous specialist that all but wrote it off as a non viable repair. 

The problem was diagnosed as a faulty final piston that was reproduced in a aerospace grade aluminium and set about the rebuild. final out come was a working compressor running up to nearly 5000 psi. for a fraction of the cost of a specialist rebuild or new compressor and even cheaper than the price of the manufactures part for the whole project.
