Can you skim the bottom of cylinder



  • Hi I'm looking at a dt200wr cylinder from eBay and it looks like the bottom of the cylinder needs skimming I know how to do the top of the cylinder and head but it won't work as the bottom isn't flat thanks jimmy



  • Does anyone know a way of skimming the bottom or is this a machinist job



  • @jimmydc98 If you had a chuck big enough you could machine it in a lathe.

    But it does sound like you would need to send it away.

    To be honest with you, it's really not that expensive. It cost me £80 to get my Starlet head chemically cleaned and skimmed.
