Eddie
When I said I was looking forward to watching the build .... Didn't mean through a magnifying glass.......
postage stamp pictures can tell a different story.
Picture 1: somebody fighting with a vacum cleaner :shock:
Picture 2: somebody pouring beer onto a sparkling piece of steel .. :shock: :shock:
Normally one just saves the picture and blows it up with the viewer ...NOPE... some crazy upload format being used.
486 had to pick the lock and reveal the truth to the picture 8)
Keep it up boys :D looking good ...........I think
