Camshaft Repair

    I need the camshaft on my 1950 Nimbus repaired, and so far the places Google has suggested are either in the Excited States, out of business, only repair automotive camshafts or will grind down further, but not rebuild the profile. Basically the lobes need to be built up and then ground back to the original profile. I have the factory drawings, and could send it back to Denmark to have the work done, but thought there must be a place in Ontario, or eastern Canada at least, that can do this work, so I'm looking for recommendations.

    Thanks !

    Well - I suppose I could try to phone them, but so far they have not replied to two emails which I personally find a bit annoying.I did get a reply and then a good conversation with a place in Concord (Canadian Chromeplating and Crankshaft) who offered to regrind it, but had no way of building it back up again to the original profile.  Web Cam in the Excited States does offer a service and also lists my specific model as being one they can do (rebuild to original profile).

    I suspect I will go the Danish route as at least I have confidence that they know what they are doing, plus I would be buying the new rockers from them anyway. Thanks for the suggestion.
