Thanks for the support guys. It's been something I've been working on for a number of years. The St&c and lt&c round thread profiles used on most casing strings around the world are prevalent because they are cheap to produce and are made up easily. The problem is that they rely on a thread compound for sealing and after several years they can allow leakage out of the wellbore into the surrounding formations. What I'm looking to develop two things the first is a premium thread profile, I'm also looking to develop a manufacturing method that allows the thread to be cut quickly in a single pass which will hopefully be enough to bring manufacturing costs down. End goal would be to have my thread take over the inexpensive thread maker so there are fewer leaking well bores.

The dream is to buy a place in bragg Creek, work at a bike shop 2 to 3 days a week and ride every other day.

Just out of interest, how much are you charging for that? I've also got an altitude that doesnt fit a coil...

Anyone made their own mud scraper? I'm thinking about using the bash guard holes to fix something that scrapes the mud and leaves off my chainring. Not sure if it'll work but I'm up for an experiment.

He said he is a student, i.e., on a budget. It doesn't mean he found the price excessive.

Yes I certinaly dont find the price excessive, in fact its quite the bargain for what you're getting.

However my budget doesnt quite have that much money in it for bike parts at the moment.
