Thanks Mark

Nothing erroneous about it - my home phone works so call me to arrange a pick up. It's all stripped down but not the happiest Duke engine I have ever looked at.

Now can we get back to the thread which was about getting vapour blasting done so guys engines look fresh as a daisy !!!

A few more pics when i can find my camera, but these were in the same condition as the case in the foreground.
the pictures speak for themself really! Im amazed everytime i get a part back.





Hi Steve,

Only too happy to keep making old castings 'new' again.

Thank you for letting everyone know you are pleased with the quality of my work. For my part it may be timely to let people know that I can straighten most fins prior to blasting if they they are not too far gone (and not cracked of course). Ditto machining, thread repair etc if need be (toolmaker by trade).

Keep it all coming - I love seeing old crappy stuff come out at the other end of the process !

no idea what that other talk was about, but certainly doesnt seem have anything to do with vapour blasting!

heres some more things i got back from dave, and as everything i have gotten back the work is fantastic! He went to alot of trouble for me on the engine cases, there was some pretty bad corrosion that he cleaned up really well, same as on the engine covers.

Also on one of the heads that he did had some bent fins. Dave not only straightened these for me, but offered to show me how to do it! Unfortunately i was in a hurry and didnt have time.
Im not pissing in his pocket, i just like to share when i find someone who does good work.

heres some more pics.
some of the last lot i had done -



And as i got them back -

Hey guys
I have only jumped back on this thread because I get inquiries from heaps of people spotting the thread on the net and they keep asking me if I am still doing the vapour blasting wet blasting aqua blasting hydro blasting etc
The answer is a resounding YES. A broad spread of finishes available depending on what you are trying to achieve, including prep for re-anodising. Not just the one set and forget finish that I'm seeing around that looks cack !!!
Also happy to straighten bent fins before blasting if required, and all oil galleries plugged as necessary plus threads protected from ingress of bead. I treat your parts like they are mine, and I'm a fussy ex toolmaker.
Trust you're all well
