I have emailed and telephone several local engineering firms about having some small one off jobs doing, the response I got was a load of shit, none were interested in the job.

I wanted 2 spacers making out of aluminium and 12 cylinder head studs, I was willing to pay up to £75 for these doing, it looks like engineering only want mega bucks which is disapointing as they would have had to start somewhere, anyway to cut a long story short I have a small lathe but had no tools for it so I decided to go and buy some tools and do the chuffing job myself.

Below are the 2 new spacers I have made and also a pic of my lathe.
