Hey Gents,

Happy New Year! All the best for you and yours.

I'm looking forward to lots of riding the A10 when the weather gets there and lots of progress on the A7. At my pace, the best I could hope for in estimating a completion date will be some time next year. At least I have the good news that my parts at the machine shop should be done this week, having already waited about 2 months.

As a reminder, the turn of the new year is a good time to make a voluntary, but important, contribution to the upkeep of this forum.

Happy New Year to all. Although it's after midday on the 02/01 (01/02 for our American cousins).
Got the 1100 barrels on the BBQ and the liners in the freezer. Had to cook lunch on the BBQ first!
Cheers

It only took ten beers and the barrels were softer than the chops!

I'm curious. I assume you had the barrels bored for the sleeve fit. Why didn't you just have the machinist fit them? Answering my own question in afterthought, why pay someone else to do something you can do yourself. Right?

G'day Richard.
The original sleeves fell out (with a little assistance) at 200C. Heated block to 150C froze liners to -20C and they fell in.
