Manufacturing Old-Stf Kick Pedals
We've had some delays in timing between the materials arriving and machine work being done, so today we had to go back to our original method of drilling the castings, polishing, making shafts on my pathetic lathe and assembling the parts. Typically, I pass this work on to my friend who knocks out a couple hundred a day in his machine shop, but like I said, I'm still waiting on material and we ran out of pedals. Then came an order for ten which took about an hour to put together no big deal, but when we have parts to sell and bikes to work on I'd just rather outsource the work (locally). All of our stuff is made in the USA!
