Machining services near Horsham, West Sussex

Machining metal removes unwanted materials to reach a required specification. From one-off large-scale jobs to repeat work on smaller items, we can help you with a variety of metal machining services which are listed below. Our in-house workshop facilities are kitted out with specialist equipment including lathes, mills, surface grinders, radial drills and more!

Metal turning

Turning typically involves using a lathe to rotate an item against the cutting tool.

One lathe can accommodate material up to 6m in length and 600mm in diameter. Three other lathes have the capability to handle 2m lengths. We can help you a range of repair work including:

  • Axles
  • Brake drums
  • Brake discs
  • Flywheels
  • Shafts
  • Bosses
  • Specialist threaded products including ACME single and double-threaded items.

Metal milling

Milling uses a rotating cutting tool with multiple cutting points to remove unwanted material.

Need help with a large-scale job? Bring it to us. Our Butler milling machine has an 3.1m bed meaning we can machine surfaces up to 5m long by 1m wide, cut out keyways, taper sides and bore large holes in heavy steel plate up to 100mm thick.

Metal drilling

Drilling produces or refines holes with a rotary cutter.  We use drill presses, lathes or mills according to the specifications of each project.

Cylinder head skimming

Cylinder head skimming is a crucial step in repairing head gaskets. We use rotating grinding stones to achieve a perfectly flat and even surface to ensure the new head gasket seals correctly.

Bring your engine repairs to our workshop – we’ve been skimming cylinder heads since 1935 and have repaired a variety of engines including motorbikes, HGVs and agricultural machinery.
