Randy, this is simply unreal work. I am in total awe of what you're doing here....I'm gonna go throw my stuff in the trash now!

This gives me inspiration, and frustration at the same time. I try to do in plastic what you do in brass, and I become vexed when it fails horribly. But just as you do, I push on until I get it right. Thank you for sharing your build and the tools/skills used to do so.
