    I was able to do a little job for myself this weekend, a little artistic machining.

    With my old watch from over 20 years ago begging to be used I thought this job would suit him down to a tee.

    I used a few pieces from the off cut bin and away we went. The most difficult part was calculating the strange hole angle, good old trigonometry sorted that out.

    We had a 70th birthday at Malcolm Engineering and it was a chance to say thanks to somebody that has guided and helped me through some hard times and showed me how to have some good times along the way aswell.

    Thanks Dad.

    Beetle Number Plate Desk Lamp, using a late model beetle number plate light and tappet cover, the main back bone mount plate was laser cut.

    Lights up the area very well.

    Need to make one for me now.

    Nice bit of feed back from DavidH. Just received his new VW Kombi Sliding Door Hinge Unit.

    Now available, billet roller housing, no more issues with broken and worn housings.

    Quote from DavidH:
    "Hi Groovers,
    Do you think this is an amazing piece of Kombi kit;). I do. Have a look & then go and look at your current sliding door rear hinge.
    The billet construction on the rear part must be stronger than original:D:cool:
    Cheers"

    You can market this part as "billet" and charge double

    This is not directed at Mellow Yellow 74 at all, I have had a lot of people tell me the same thing.

    Going down that road I would only sell one Hinge Unit a year to the higher level buyer as the price would be out of reach to the average kombi driver. My market research indicates the price is at a level where everybody can afford a Malcolm Engineering Hinge Unit, my angle toward "billet" is strength and durability for the long term benefit of the vehicle and the owner.

    This solution now allows a exchange of any Hinge Unit from anybody broken or not and be able to get there van back on the road for the next 40 years of memories.
