    Absolutely outstanding work, as I have come to expect. (That's the problem with perfection, isn't it? You do it a couple of times and people start to expect it.)

    The copper mesh is an excellent touch.

    Beautiful work. What's that metal base from? The copper mesh really fits the theme a lot better than the plastic did. Nice fan hole as well, what are you using to cut that out?

    Thanks! The metal base is from a heater from the 1940s. I love old consumer appliances (radios, heaters, toasters, etc). I trip through a flea market is deadly for me.

    The fan grill is being cut with a laser (pew, pew). The company is Vintage Laser who were the ones who cut the fan grill for Cobra-matic. They're working their way through the brass parts now.

    I didn't have it in me *not* to sigquote that.

    Me goes to turn sigs on...BRB.

    Edit: lolz, yeah, one of the guys on bit-tech used that in their worklog. Now I can't say laser without "hearing" that sound.

    Mach, I love your approach to making your own bolts. And damnit, now you have me thinking...

    Thanks DT! It was fairly easy once I got going. I'd be interested in seeing what you're up to.

    I'm thinking a similar approach using spent .22 caliber shells but I have no idea whatsoever as to what to use them on.

    Or...maybe go a bit larger, say .223 or .22-250. We'll just have to wait and see if I can even think of anything to use such an item on.

    After a trip to the local range, I've toyed with the idea of stacking them length wise and making the sides of a case from them. That's the problem with modding. After awhile everything looks like a part for a mod.
