It's easy to tell what a business does as you're walking around Chon Buri because every shop expands to fill all available space, including the sidewalk.

This place machined and rebuilt heads.

There were parts and tools strewn all over the place, a large press, lots of solvent, spanners, as well as some more job-specific tools, like this mini-sledge.

Obviously any machine shop isn't complete without a lathe.

But aside from the lathe and press most of what was in the one-room shop was PARTS. Tons of head cores, lots of valves and conrods and pistons filling the place, so that final assembly could only take place in the middle of the walkway that ran through the middle of the shop.

More to come.
