Sponsor: Sorensen Engineering

The hubs for our new design of arctic cart involves some pretty intricate machining to be done in aluminium to hold the bearings etc.

We wandered around different machine workshops in Sydney getting quotes and most places were a bit alarmed at what was needed to make the stub axles - specifically the 500mm long, 40mm diam hole to be bored through the middle of it to save weight.

John Bridekirk at Sorensen Engineering not only worked out how best to do it and quoted me the very next day, but after showing Chris around their meticulous, high-tech workshop in Brookvale he also became so enthused by the adventure that he did the jobs for us below cost price as well as jumping the que with their lengthy several week backlog of jobs!

Thanks very much John!
