Daniel Solheim turned to Metal Supermarkets Chicago (Bridgeview) when he needed metal to restore an original 1943 Lycoming Radial R680-13 Aircraft Engine. Originally, the engine was completely disassembled and had parts missing. With his skills and the help of Metal Supermarkets, Daniel fully restored the engine to its original working condition.

Metal Supermarkets Chicago (Bridgeview) provided Daniel with a custom welded engine stand that raises the engine to the correct height for testing. Check out Daniel’s restored engine in action, supported by the stand made by Metal Supermarkets:

Daniels restoration days aren’t behind him yet. “I’ve purchased two more of these radial aircraft engines to rebuild” says Daniel. “I’ll be using your services again soon.”
