I was wondering how I could get an extra 50cc out of my 600cc B50. I think I have all the parts on hand. Can't wait!

What the...???
I didn't turn up the sound, so I don't know if it's all a joke. What sort of nasty stuff was on the spoons to create metal chips/turnings? :uhu

Having long been a fan of Mr Heath Robinson's half round file and cardboard template as weapons of choice for re-bores, I will update my bodge bank with the necessary egg-whisk, spoons and surplus tennis equipment. The ability to spin things round and round with such a mechanical device is eye-opening. :ban
