Has anyone had any experience, good or bad, with Brake & Equipment Warehouse in Minneapolis, regarding master cylinder resleeving? Quality? Workmanship? reliability? I will have mine done soon and would appreciate any comments. Thanks, Joe

Nope, but a lot of CRG members recommend White Post...  http://www.whitepost.com/

From the White Post website...

•Our rebuilt cylinders are better than new, they will never rust, pit or corrode, because we install brass sleeves.
•We disassemble the cylinders, glassbead clean, bore oversize, press in the brass sleeve and size them to original specifications. We rebuild your cylinder with all necessary new parts and apply an original finish on the outside.
•We rebuild vacuum boosters for all cars and trucks.
•We also reline brake shoes and disc brake pads.
•All work is guaranteed with a written Lifetime Warranty.
•Quick Service - Same Day & Overnight. (Normally 2 to 3 Days.)
•When you receive your rebuilt brake cylinders, they're ready to bolt on your car, and you'll never have to touch them again!

I used Apple Hydraulics to re-sleeve my master cylinder.  Pics are in the master cylinder cover thread. Very nice work.

That's the place that did mine too. It's local so it was just a short car ride. He does brass or SS sleeves. I opted for brass.

Brake and Equipment out of Minneapolis has done at least 2 master cylinders and 8 wheel cylinders for me.
Work was done promptly, well and reasonably priced.

I didn't see any pricing on their website, but I watched their video, and they seem well equipped and capable at a great variety of machine shop tasks..  If I were closer, I'd certainly let them do a job or two for me.

Resleeving only for my 1968 dual reservoir 1" bore master cylinder was quoted at $115. They use a stainless steel sleeve. And thanks for all the input.
