1) New Cam Test Stand V Block Clamp for Short Cams  If you've done short motorcycle or kart motor cams on our Cam Test Stand, you know you have to keep a finger on the cam journal when testing.  Otherwise the rotary encoder hung off the end of the cam will tip the short cam off the V block on the other end.  Well, we've come up with a fix, our V Block Clamp, part number CTS-VBC for $145.  Check the pictures and description below.

Part Number: CTS-VBC  V-Block Clamp, holds short cams firmly on the V Block, shown installed with Adjustable V Block.  Short cams with the linear encoder attached to the end will tend to tip off the V Blocks, and this clamp holds the cam in place.  It has a soft, nylon tip to provide smooth rotation and not damage the journal.

  to send us an email requesting info on how to purchase this option.  

2) Christmas Is Coming 
Just a reminder that Christmas will be here in just a few weeks.  If you've been thinking of getting one of our products, put it on your Christmas list.     Maybe Santa will be extra good to you this year (as long as you've been nice  ).

  for some ideas of what to ask for, starting at $22.95 for a 100% Made in USA tee shirt.
