A hot welding blob down the leg of the shorts onto the family jewels ain't much fun either.

Just called in at the mates workshop, not much happening on the lathe today,
both Marks parents are quite old and very sick, not expected to make Xmas, so that's his priority right now, not my barrel sleeving.
And I understand and accept that.
He's a good mate and got a lot on his plate right now.

Enough of oversize manic marsupials,
Back to that extremely boring tale....
Just dropped into the engineering workshop to see how things are going.
The second barrel is being reamed out to size to fit the Darton sleeves, as used by all the Top Fuel, Top Alcohol, Top Bike, and Top boat, nitromethanol fuelled monsters.
These are the sleeves Lloydz fit to your barrels when you get his big bore kit.

Mark commented today. After warning me not to touch any part of the lathe in my photography mission.
He said to get a pic showing the bottoms of the original sleeves laying in the removed scarf under the lathe.
So much metal is removed for the new sleeves that during the machining the original sleeve parts company with its barrel.

More still needs to come out, it has to be done in stages with stops to allow everything to cool down as the process generates a lot of heat, carefully touch a drill bit after you've drilled through some metal, and you'll get some idea of what we are talking about.
Then the step has to be machined as I've already elaborated on.

I snapped off a couple of other pix of jobs that are being done alongside mine, mainly bikes of that other American company.
Enjoy a look inside an old school engineers shop that prides itself on it's motorcycle work as well as all facets of general engineering.
