...........................you sure can make one of these priceless (hr - wise) the one on the top got 16mm holes first, my home-made rings (3mm height); finally getting back to a lathe after 30yrs. my old F1 fabricator pal welded em in and many an hour later it looks like this, the one at the bottom is untouched except for the work - easter?s lovely this year - no silly walk with the y.k.w. sandy
