Metal spraying worn areas and grinding back to standard size provides a salvage scheme that can keep the most precious machines alive.

Our extensive welding service includes Mig/Tig/Gas/Arc.


Sometimes repairing a component is not an option and a replacement part is not always available.

Manufacturing a one off component for a lot of today's engineering shops is not cost effective and therefore they would not entertain that type of work, however with our combination of traditional and modern day engineering capabilities a one off component or large quantities is within our capability.

Salvage Schemes

Reclaiming worn or damaged components is a specialty of Thurston Engineering and also a sensible and economic way of recycling existing components without depleting the worlds resources. With over 60 years experience and a very versatile machine shop adapting to the ever increasing customer demands is taken in our stride.

Shaft rebuilding including keyways, seal and bearing areas or re-manufacturing to new standards. We offer the very best facilities for repair to components including non-destructive crack testing, rebuilding worn and corroded areas and machining to size.
