    This guys coming along nicely! Messed up a few times, but here she is. Tell me what you think so far, thinking about doing a batch of 10 or so, so would like to here what you think. Any question feel free to ask! I think this one is getting a chisel gring tommorow.

    Lookin good so far! First try to make two alike then three before shooting for 10, that's the hardest part. But it is very good practice, make one thing a bunch and you will get good at it quick.

    I would suggest using a counter-bore and insetting the screw heads.

    Thanks I will, I still got to grind the pins to the right size. This one still needs a lot of work but I will keep you guys updated with how it goes. Thanks!
