What a wonderful Gentleman. Gene makes a great Line Boring kit for Model T and Model A Babbitting. Mr. French just finished re-babbitting my 1927 engine. I was able to watch Gene as he did his work. It was a great experience to watch him setting up and pouring the melted babbitt. Gene showed me how easy it is to complete this project. He is a true professional. I believe I will buy his line boring kit now that I have found out how easy it is to do your own work. Thank you Gene.....
have you pics of this kit? And where can we get it on?
I have one of his older cast iron kits and he still offers parts and support for them, great guy.

I have met Gene and seen his equipment and discussed it with him at Chickasha. He's a good guy, his equipment is pretty simple and well thought out.
