we can repair most things with our extensive workshop facilities, broken something, below are a couple of repairs we’ve undertaken, if you’ve got a problem, please give us a call to discuss.
Laser XD tiller
we were given this broken laser tiller to repair.
so we did,
we cleaned out the insides, created a carbon inner skin to replicate the shape and chamfered the original tiller, we then laid in a combination of UD and bi-axial cloth, wrapped it all with some plain weave carbon in a uv-resistant epoxy matrix and vacuumed it all down and baked it. Once this had set we gave it a couple of coats of UV lacquer to protect it even more for under half the price of a new one.
Winder Solo Tiller
we were presented with a rather sorry looking rudder and tiller where someone had tried a home repair by ramming a few pieces of broom handle inside it and epoxying it in, unfortunately the broom handle was a bit large (not to mention heavy) and had split the tubing almost to the rudder stock.
unfortunately there was only a couple of inches at the stock end that were salvageable, so we cut the back as far from the stock as we could, made an internal tube and glued the stub and a new tiller tube together.
and here’s the completed rudder and tiller, complete with new downhaul and a saddle under the uj, one more happy customer at a 3rd of the cost of a replacement stock.
