    Hello,

    Sorry but I have no updates. Just spent the weekend filing the plates edges.
    Probably will have nightmares about files.

    Hi WMello,

    WOW! Beautiful workmanship. Thanks for sharing.

    Just one question. Is this what they call a CAT scan?

    Great progress. It must be extremely satisfying to see the frames and pillars assembled.
    Keep up the excellent work, and post plenty of pictures!

    Paul.

    I see more photos of the cat. I suspect the cat is doing the posting...

    Nice work. I am jealous. I should have been a machinist.
