Shop & Machinery

Our engine shop team takes pride in the fact that all machining and grinding operations for restoration of your Merlin engine is performed 100% in-house. We have numerous dedicated machines with specialty fixtures and accessories specifically for overhaul of the Merlin engine. 

From previous experience, outside vendors often run parts through their operation quickly and with sometimes little regard for the rarity and value of these engines. Performing all machining and grinding operations, in addition to inspections in our shop, allows us to control every aspect of the rebuild and ensure a first class restoration.
