Mike is now at Skellerns engineering  - ask for Arthur. They did my new one a couple of months back. I also found an option in Tauranga that looked very good - but being auckland based we used Skellerns. Let me know if you need the Tauranga company and i will look it up.

Yes, have emailed them but no reply. May call them Monday.

 

Were they priced ok? Greg Elliott said they are now eye watering expensive to what they used to charge.

Well that is a big hand brake then, $7500 to re cast lead.....

Last Bulb we did must have been about $1.50 per kg when supplying lead.

My understanding is the price has increased quite significantly - there are health and safely issues working with lead so that may be part of it - as well as general supply and demand. The tauranga option was cheaper from memory but then you have to factor in transport.
