    Which poor soul had the task of oiling all of those puppies?

    Great job by the way!

    It’s actually an automated process in a specialized centrifuge...awesome machine that spins and rotates in multiple directions during the spin to ensure equal coverage and saturation.

    It’s an actual filter oiling machine. I’ll post a video of it in action sometime.

    A herd of hamsters in a giant hamster wheel.
    A least you're not outsourcing and exploiting cheap labour

    Given the rate we pay ourselves...I’d say cheap labour is an understatement. We are far below the poverty line :)

    I’m away on a riding trip and the LC8 western alps rally in Italy. Let me see if I’ve got access to files I can send you but won’t know until Saturday/Sunday
