Dukerslock System and Stitching


Over 60 years ago the American oil industry developed a method of cold casting repair, utilising the now well known metal stitching key and stud. This method allowed repairs to be undertaken on sophisticated machinery 'in situ' without the use of flame welding.

After the second world war this process came into it's own and was widely used within the industry. A series of companies sprang up offering their service as cold casting repairers, specializing in the repair of machinery which often would have been useless due to the lack of spare parts.

Many of these companies still exist today, however, we at Dukerswell Engineers have taken one further important step in the cold casting repair industry. We are now allowing you the opportunity of repairing your own castings with our own fully comprehensive repair kit, step by step instruction manual, and your own maintenance or plant engineers.

The complete kit comprises of over 80 high quality tools and equipment, some of which are shown in this picture.
