Dennes Engineering

The month of May has been our busiest month by far this year, but never fear spirits are higher than ever at Dennes Engineering! We completed over 222 orders, That’s an average of over 7 per day! Somewhere in between all that we managed to fit in some upgrades to our workshop and implemented a new express service for our Aquablasting! We are also really excited to be involved in a charity Motorcycle rebuild, but more on that below! Lastly we want to wish all our customers a happy Father's day! A special thank you goes out to my father, Don Nash, for starting Dennes way back in 1984 and for passing on so much knowledge to all of us!

Little Dog 2
Together with Rob from Tissington Motor Spares we have been machining and fabricating parts for this little project since 2014. After Rob won our Aquablast competition last month, it was the first time we got to see this special motor car in the flesh! Rob has done a fantastic job restoring and improving this classic Morris Minor, which is based on a car that Rob and his father raced in the 60's! We asked Rob to put together a paragraph on some of the build details, but believe us, this little car could fill its own Newsletter!
"Little Dog 2 is a 1957 Morris Minor '1000' 2-door saloon that has been resto-modified as a "street-legal concours classic race car".  It is loosely based on its predecessor, Little Dog 1, which my dad and I raced in East London in the late 60's (1000cc class W).  The drivetrain is all inline BMC A-Series i.e. Morris Marina 1.3 engine, MG Midget 1275 sccr gearbox, Morris Minor rear axle. Front suspension is standard Morris Minor '1000' with fully adjustable Armstrong lever arm dampers sourced from the USA.  Rear suspension is fully adjustable trailing 3-link with Mumford link for lateral control.  Brakes are Riley 1.5 drums with Lockheed servo.  Wheels are Compomotive (alloy) or Aero Race Wheels (steel), 7J x 13 front and 8J x 13 rear.  Tyres are Avon ZZS (dry) and Avon All Weather Historic wet/dry. With a fully tuned 1293cc race engine, Little Dog 2 is expected to lap ELGP and Killarney race circuits in times comparable to those achieved by Gordon Briggs in his W111 1000cc Broadspeed Anglia."  - Rob T


We are proud to be part of this project to help raise funds for the sweetest 2 year old girl, Josephine, who recently underwent surgery to remove a large aggressive brain tumour.

As an added bonus every ticket bought will receive 5 tickets to the 2018 Festival of Beer!
The raffle will be drawn on the 29th June 2018

Thank you to all our customers that have given us the opportunity to be involved in their restorations, We have had another fantastic month making old parts new again!
Even though our service is usually a speedy 1 – 2 day turn around, our customers have asked us to implement an EXPRESS service. If you need a part cleaned while you wait, that is now an option! Check out our website for details and pricing for Standard and EXPRESS!

Industrial Work/Corrugated Board
Most of you know about our long standing connection with BHS Corrugated but you may not know that apart from selling their machines and spare parts in Southern Africa we also offer maintenance and repair work for customers in that industry.
Pictured here is a corrugated roll that we had in for a repair last month, we put a piece of cardboard on top to show you how the corrugation is formed when it is manufactured! 😊
