Default Re-Pinching a motor

How is a motor re-pinched and what equipment is needed to do this? If you do take it to someone to have it re-pinched what information should have as in example do you tell them the bore was xx or should they know.

There is a few ways to do sleeve resizing. You need to send the piston also to match it with the sleeve, so you don't need to measure it. Rayaracing and other companies sell equipment to do resizing but it is at least $400.00 on up. Anything you can buy on Ebay for $15.00 will not work well.
I charge $15.00 which includes return shipping in the Us. I think my equipment is the one of the best being used.

I know some with these tools and they just do the job but you must get a feeling for it to do it right.
