Have you spoken to Big Al? Isn't he a fitter and turner? He is also a qualified welder as well. Jack of all trades you could say.

Cheers

aah sorry mate, can't help you but your topic as read, brought a smile.

That's a term we used to use for the (incompetent) camp cook: they could FIT it in a pot and TURN it into shiiit, hence fitter and turner.

apologies to all those fair dinkum fitters!

Eric, is there anything special about the shape of the alloy blocks? Are they just a disc with a hole drilled in the centre?
We've got a lathe at work if it's just a simple turning job, I'm not a fitter but a boilermaker/specialist tig welder if that helps.
Our factory is in Carrum Downs if that helps.
Regards Andrew.

I had photos of some of his work here, I'll get some more.
His last few IC's for the ricers and his own alloy Radiator are works of art... Very good.

Call me I got Andrews # if need be.
