This weekend presented a challenge of making new Quick Bolts. They are used in engine rebuilding and were originally supplied by KR Wilson. The best part of this weekend project was my grandson, age 13, who was introduced to the engine lathe for the first time. Shy at first but he proved to be a quick learner and had a big smile when we finished.

Jack, very nice job. I have a set of the quick bolts, they are worth their weight in gold when setting up the crankshaft mains ... Great to here the grandson has interest. They are the future of the hobby ....

Are you going to produce them to be available for us "hobbyists" ?

Jason: They are used in place of the regular nut and bolt that hold the bearing caps. Often the caps have to be removed and installed several times when fitting Babbitt bearings. These are designed to be quickly be installed or removed. Once the bearings are fitted the original main bearing bolts are installed.

Steve: The thought did cross my mind to make some if there is interest.
