    the voices in my head tell me to buy chainsaws
    This shop has done various parts for me reliably, an actual business with employees and several geniuses on staff.

    These tools work excellent, never put case/bearings/seals together so quickly. Roughly 20 mins and the cases were together with new seals and top end back on a 661

    Definitely worth every penny! Thanks again @Mattyo

    I’ll be following for update kits/tooling :drinking:

    Picked up a set of these quite some time ago. Decided a quality tool set like this, needed a decent container.

    Started out as a pile

    Purchased this hoping it was big enough

    i would love to had blow molded cases made for these things, but I can't imagine how much $$ it would cost in the small quantities that I deal with. harbor freight has blow molded cases, but they are likely super cheap because they sell millions of kits of whatever tools. would be nice to find a cost effective solution.

    and just like that, tools back out of stock

    sorta

    only ended up with a half batch of m14 rods due to a tap breaking. i've tried to get replacement taps, they keep sending right handy taps .... ugh. hopefully 2 arriving tomorrow which I will promptly send to the machinist, then when he gets the remaining rods done i'll have good stock of the main kit for a while.

    I shipped 22 packages yesterday including 4 international.... I think I have 8 more on the bench packed up.

    anyone that is interested can send me a PM ...
