    Garage tour video would be good thanks Colin. As you say that play on the bearings is surprising. Cant say I noticed it on Beta originals. Will have to check mine when it goes together again.

    Cheers guys, garage tour seems to be a popular suggestion, so we'll definitely make it happen. As for the bearings although fixed I'm still perplexed as to the cause, and wouldn't be surprised if your beta bearings are fine. I'll definitely try a different brand next time around, I'd looked for Timkin but couldn't find any, my dad has since located some.

    As has already been said, great video. Love the lateral thinking to sort stuff and the cylindrical dremel grinder was a stroke of genius!

    Those bearings were bloody awful, no idea why they were that bad especially for a decent brand like SKF.

    - maybe Chinese knock-offs?

    It worked a lot better than I thought it would!

    I was thinking the same thing, so for the replacement one I got it through an skf dealer who ordered it directly from skf Australia, so you'd hope they are legit

    With only a couple of small jobs to tidy up this episode I thought we could have a walk around the workshop and checkout the tools i've been
    using to build the Stratos tarmac Rally car

    Excellent, thanks Colin, you've packed a load of kit in there. Out of interest how big is your machine shop area?
