If anyone is aware of any company or person that has any cores left for the Stude, We would be greatly thankful for any direction. Thanks Tom.

Is that $600 with the grind of choice or just the core?

Grind of choice

Hi Thanks for the tip,, Ill try. $600. is about right, any other roller grind is up there too. lionel stone probably has to pay a large premium to get a small batch run. and probably a minimum run of 100 cores. So his expenses are up front, and then labor. It all gets real costly very quick. $600. is not too steep. I would expect to pay half that for a core. Tom.

Chicago billet is the company that makes them for all the cam grinders, Lional has a guy that dose his cams for him, he picked them up from Jet City Studebaker when they went out of business, you are perty close to Northern Wash. there you could check about Corban Walters he might still have some stuff left,

Hi Allan, It seems that Corbin Walters shut down awhile ago, And knowbody seems to know where He currently is. With his talent, no doubt some race team or shop has scooped him up. Thanks a bunch for the info. Ill try Chicago Billet.

He is still around, talk to some of his friends, he dosn't want to be found.

Hi Allan, Ive tried on the net for Chicago billet and cant locate, are you sure that this is Full company name??? It appears that there are many foundries in that area that do billets of every description. would like to narrow it down a bit. Appreciate it, Thanks Tom.

That is the name Ed Iskenderian gave me as the one where he buys his billets from. But he told me that they sell by the ton you could not buy less than a few thousand.

Alan, We have been able to purchace small runs of cores of less than 200 for nearly anything. We have only heard of two individuals that have produced stude roller cam blanks. the gentleman in oregon may have sold out or passed away, we couldnt locate his shop. The other company is definatley back east and Chicago sounds right. Chicago Billet doesnt come up on screen. thanks Tom.

Ed is cleaning out a wharehouse of his and he will keep an eye out for any Stude stuff. I will see him again next Monday.

Hi Linda, I know Geoff Bardal, He has been grinding our cams. Colt cams. Geoff is a real camshaft wizzard and has well over 20 years building all sorts of incredible race cams. Geoff Worked for Shadbolt cams for many years, Shadbolt got sold . Geoff went solo. His Shop is in Langley B.C. His Studebaker Supercharger cam is just awesome, I have one, its the C-215-S cam. Geoff could not find any Roller blanks for Stude .. Perhaps he has found some recently???? All forum readers / contributors should check out Colt Cams. A Canadian race cam !!! Thanks linda for info. Tom.
