    I know it is a long shot. I am looking for someone with line boring and or welding equipment. I would like to rent and or look at purchasing. Talking to someone with experience would also be helpful.

    If anyone has a contact or lead to someone; even a representative of a manufacturer, I would appreciate the information.

    Thanks Andrew

    Also done in power plants and generally anything huge and to cumbersome to move. Can be extremely exacting tolerances per specific applications.

    I know someone that has done it some. Not sure that is what you are looking for though. He's on the board, just not much anymore.

    Cool deal. I like seeing new stuff like that. Setting one of those rigs up has to be tedious as fukk.

    @WARRIORWELDING will be changing his name to “daddyfatsacks” in good time with that equipment. Lol I know of 6 local company’s that need multiple machines bored, bc they are used so much but they can’t find anyone to do it...

    Some quarry equipment loaders, mostly big excavators, cranes, boom arms on RR trucks and dozers we had a big ex dropped off at fab shop last month or so that had needed to be bored it snapped the pin and they said just plate it well buy A new one next year... light went off in my head bc someone mentioned this before in my welding as carter thread, but price of those line borers ain’t cheap and takes some skill from my understanding to set up properly! Would be $$$ tho bc not many people do it from what I’ve researched!

    Sounds cool to do in the field. I've only seen align boring/honing done on engine blocks for crank and cam bores, and that's obviously in a machine shop. Some non-engine stuff too, but again in a machine shop.

    I'd love to do line boring. It keeps things interesting. Plus, when nobody else really knows what you're doing, they usually leave you alone while you're doing it....like it's some kind of black magic or something :D

    Setup, bore, make a sleeve, weld it, grind it smooth, bore it again, and put in the original size bushing. When I fixed my mini-ex's main eye, it was cheaper to just cut it off and start over with a piece of 4" DOM, some lathe work, and some welding. On that great big stuff, you really only have one option.

    Funny you say this...I got a small fleet of Bobcats to do. This was my first thought. A lathe might be cheaper to purchase. I am striving to keep it all "in house".

    Yep...they torched that main eye right on off and made a new one. I think it cost me 450 bucks. Time/money wise, it was a much easier way to do it. Mine was supposed to measure a few thousandths under 2.250 to get good press on the bushings. I measured 2.375 vertically and 2.350 forward to aft. It was wallowed out pretty bad...but not quite as bad as that one!
