We initially repaired this BB
for a customer under guarantee when it failed again. We couldn’t
understand way so I thought I would share this rather intense re-repair
with you.

It turns out that the alloy inner lug was snapped
originally, so any amount of re-bonding of the sleeve would have been in
vein. We had no choice but to get to ‘bare bones’ to solve this. Seeing
as she had paid so much to get it out to us we could at least make a
good friend in Finland 🙂
