Paypal payments/charges

Posted by on Aug 20, 2018 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Even though i always ask for payments made through Paypal to be sent as a ‘gift’ (as any charges come straight out of my wages), very few people do, so i often end up losing money. Some how that doesn’t feel fair when i’ve worked my bollocks off and charged as little as i can, its not fair on me and not good business sense (of which as we all know i have very little to start with!)

Titanium racing Honda 4 valve retaining caps

Posted by on Mar 30, 2018 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

This is a set of titanium valve retainers for a Honda 4 that goes racing. These are the caps that stop the valve from dropping into the engine so they are pretty critical. I get cutters ground up to the exact collet angle to be sure they seat well. One of the disadvantages of titanium that becomes an advantage in these little deenies is that because titanium can be a bit ‘grabby’ it holds the collets more securely than steel, though to be fair if the angles are right they aren’t going anywhere whether steel or titanium.
