Vapor Honing Key Benefits
The Vapor Honing process uses a combination of pressurized water and smooth media. The water cushions the impact of the media and also lubricates the action of the media against the surface of the part. This is what gives Vapor Honed components their bright, smooth finish.
Unlike bead blasting, which propells potentially destructive media at high speed towards the surface of the part, Vapor Honing is very gentle and is safe to use on threads, engravings and surfaces on which tolerances must be maintained. Vapor Honing is a cold process that, unlike bead blasting, does not generate any heat via friction which can easily cause distortion of the part. Vapor Honing is safe to use on small and thin parts without any worry of damaging them.
Durability & Longevity
Vapor Honed components retain their appearance due to the peening and sealing nature of the finish. Particularly with aluminum, the pores of the metal are peened closed which prevents future staining and corrosion. This ensures that your components will look attractive and stay clean for many years to come.
Our process cleans and degreases the part as it finishes it. Oil, grease, dirt and other residue is thoroughly removed from the surface of the part and from below the visible surface of the part from which it may appear later (particularly when heated).

I want to send you my parts What is the process?
Follow these simple steps:
Call me and tell me about what you have? I may request pictures, measurements as my cabinet is only so big ?
All parts should be disassembled fully and cleaned of wet oil, silocone,gasket, and case sealant. It is some times possible to put the entire motor in assembled ? you must make block off plates for intake exhaust remove stator call for details.
Be sure you send your bolts nuts and washers to. Put all nuts washers and lock washers though a wire or zip tie ( galley pic for exmple) and bolts in a zip loc bag this will help keep these items organized. acorn nuts place on stud bolts if desired.
If you are planning on having any machine work done such as Boring cylinders ect have that work done first. if needed to i use a liner in bore
