    I was lucky enough to train with an instructor in the UK many years ago, but unfortunately opportunities like that are few and far between in North America.

    The limiter-style discs at 275mm will give you a 325mm diameter with knives installed, maximum. You'll lose at least 50mm to spacers etc so they...

    Hi Phillip, bushes and sleeves are of course technically possible with adjustable groovers and others but you have to be very careful. You have to have enough sleeve in there to ensure all...

    Hi Phillip, lots of folks will just use those T bushings top and bottom with smaller blocks, but I always add sleeves to the taller blocks. The unfortunate thing is it's generally frowned on to use...
