Yeah I bet. It is something that I feel I could learn to do and would enjoy using it, it seems to be a challenge.

Alan Burton from the speed shop has a nice device made by B-Mods, it uses a ER 24 collet i think, very simple set up and effective, not sure of the price on it though, the Raya system is sweet to.

The B-Mods pincher is sweet for sure. Chris Burling (B-Mods) has pinched sleeves for me before, I have seen it in action. Its cool because you can adjust how much pinch you put on it and it works on all brands. You can put a slight pinch on it to freshen up the motor with another break-in, or you can put a more aggressive pinch on an older, high mileage mill. Its not cheap though, I think its around $400-$500 range.

where can i get info on it, I would like to look at it more in detail myself, I haven't offered pinching in any of my services just due to the cost of the unit, but we are relocating and a new facelift is on the way

I charge $15.00 return shipping included to lower 48 Us. Rates may go up slightly this winter as I've been extremely busy.

See JP, for $400 you can get your sleeves pinched 16 times (don't forget s&h) before you reach the price of a basic pincher.

400 times for the fancy $10K one.

Tooling order form was removed from my website to able me time to satisfy reconditioning-resizing orders, that which had reached greater numbers this year over the past 8 years.

I may not be as fast as you young guys BUT I like to race too.
