Hi all

I've really got my head down and going at fhis like a loon
The original pics above of the tipurret rear I was really unhappy with
Some of the angles we not quite right ..
So I scrapped it and started again
And worked solid for 12 hours plus ...

My fingers hurt ...

Coming along very nice. Yes I know some days I pray for a peaceful 5-6 hours in my shop and 12 hours later I feel like a mad scientist and crawl up the stairs to the rest of the house like " what the hell just happened?"

And my hands are sore and they are a multitude of colors and patterns with some type of adhesive everywhere....

And add the beginnings of several boxes and storage baskets roundness out side of the turret ..
