Looking For A Small Engine Machine Shop In Ri
Posted December 02, 2012 - 03:34 PM
I am going to hit the pavement tomorrow and try to find someone, but I thought I would see if any members around RI or Eastern CT know of a reputable shop.
It is sad all the shops around here either closed or they just don't machine anymore.
Last resort I guess I would have to ship them off to someone. It would just be nice to find someone fairly close, as I have a few rebuilds I will be doing soon.

Np Pete! Thanks for the lead! I was planning to check with them tomorrow also.I used to work right down the road from there even.
Sorry I didn't reply to your PM. Only place I can think of who does small engine repair and may have a lead is Allens Seed on Rt 2.

I was the Lead Mechanic at Carbon Tech till we closed and moved it to Mexico. That was the company I worked at before my last company (Bostich) that moved to China and Poland.
Oh Yea? Where abouts?

I know this thread is a bit old now, but does anyone know of any good machine shops for small engines in the RI, southern New England area?

If you are around southern RI, There is a guy Steve Burdick. He owns Steve's Auto Parts in Bradford RI. When I was looking I had totally forgot about his place. I just had him Bore my K301 .030 and grind the valve seats. He does outstanding work at a great price (IMO)
I will pm his number to you ( We don't like putting numbers in the open forums)
