Lochaber Stainless Logo
Situated in Fort William, Lochaber Stainless is a specialist in stainless steel pipe and tube work. Our speciality is in vehicle exhaust systems and manifolds.

With over 1200 square feet of workshop space dedicated to the production of tubular equipment to the highest quality. Computer controlled bending equipment allows for accurate, and repeatable bends.

The repeatability of this machine makes it ideal for production runs of varying lengths. This mandrel bender has another benefit, bend quality! the technology involved prevents the tube from collapsing or ovalising. this is crucial for situations where flow is important. We can also providedivide the following, handrails, balustrades, bespoke fabrication both one offs and continued manufacture.

A last minute repair one evening this week to a broken control arm mount on this 1930 ford model A.
Claus and his wife have driven here from the north of Sweden to do the Islay whisky tour. Glad I could play a part in keeping them on the road 😎

What do you do when you can bend tube, but can't bend a tight enough radius? Thats right, pie cuts! Time consuming but the only way to get through such a tight path through the bike. 5.2m of weld in total and over 30 parts, all in a 1m exhaust!
Time (and gas!) consuming for sure but quite an interesting challenge. Front pipe assembly for a KTM LC4.

Rover V8 engine block came in with two cracks between the core plugs thanks to the cold snap we've been having. Did my best to salvage it, given the cost of getting a low mileage replacement it was worth a try. Now for the customer to have it cut back and shaped to take the new plugs. Hope it works 🀞

#yamaha #r6 decat made last month. Jigs have been made for this so there is potential for a limited production run if there is enough interest. In addition to removing a major restriction and improving flow, there is an 8kg weight saving to be had. Mandrel bent 304 stainless. #sportbike #lochaberstainless

Looking back through some pictures of our projects over the last year. This 1933 #alvis #firefly was trailered up for a complete #custom exhaust in #stainlesssteel in November.
Most interesting thing about this car is the brake pedal is on the right and the accelerator is in the middle. Didn't get the chance to drive it but I'm sure that would take some getting used to!
