I'm not doing it to make a fortune, its more something to do than anything else mate but cranks at 20 quid kills my small profit

I'll either have to put my prices up a lot or find a cheap supply of busted engines

Yes mate, way too cheap but they are going as quick as I can make them & I'm not having to stick them on ebay or advertise elsewhere which is worth a couple of quid to me

I'm only making about 20 quid out of the stools, its a lot of work for that but I enjoy it :)

Ok well I’ll hate fine i do the same with exhausts sometimes. Often make small amounts on them but I turn them around soon as I get them so a quick 20-40 quid is great. Few of those soon adds up

However just saying don’t do yourself out of dosh especially if money tight. Don’t be too expensive but being too cheap is just as bad at times.

Keep up the good work thoUgh. :ymapplause:

Cheers mike I knew you would get it mate :-bd

I did the first one & a guy made an offer on it, I thought that's ok as it wasn't all that good, the next ones were much better but the precedent on price had been set & they shift fairly quickly so I'm happy enough :)

If I had enough scrap engines I could do it as a production line & cut down on the time spent a great deal but its not going to happen lol

Having said that I have one bigger ticket item almost done & that's cost not a lot in terms of parts, I hope to get a decent amount for my time on that & I have a couple of ideas for stuff I can make from all the leftover bits that will also only cost my time so I should see a few quid in the end ;)

What sort of engine bits do you want, slim?

Cranks, camshafts, valves, holed pistons?

Its mainly cranks & rods I am short of at the minute mate, cams, balancer shafts & any gearbox parts are always useful though :)

Pretty much anything steel & interesting shaped comes in useful eventually, I have even used old sprockets a few times now
