Burnishing pictures
Here are some parts for some of Scott's customers. Almost every hole in the HL carbs is subject to swallowing a pin, so I wire them up to prevent it. They arrived at 10:30 this morning and were ready to be shipped several hours later.

Jon C in Indiana sent some minibike wheels which were blasted with either sand or aluminum oxide grit. It's pretty heavy stuff, but nothing some time burnishing can't fix. They took longer than normal, but they still turned out great.

I got another box from Karl on Monday and knocked them out the first moment I got home from work. One of the 92 blocks had a pretty fresh hone and I was able to tape if off for the blast and burnish. The other 92 block was "well seasoned" as Karl put it, and indeed it was! haha. The seasoned block went in raw. All the other cast or machined pieces cleaned up easy. I also clean and chase every thread to get all the old loctite or RTV out of them.

After the blast, prepped, and ready to go in the tank.

As you can see the Hone is still intact. The discoloration is from the chemicals and won't affect the bore.
