These next pictures show "precious" (named by new owner) on his presentation board that I made to present him to his new owner at
the WWZ game in aug (Colorado).
Sadly he was not able to come to the game due to health reasons
but the wife and I did get to drive to his house and meet him and his
awesome wife. I think I have a picture of me giving this away and the smile on both our faces. I will try to find and add it. Attachment 35969 Attachment 35970

Hope you enjoy "Precious" as it was a joy to build.
Note: All this was completed with a chop saw, hand drill,
dremmel (90%), files, sandpaper and polish. Any one with the desire
could make one just as I have here easily for under
100.00. ( a friend has a mini-lathe that I use to make the bolts -
it will barely cut the delrin - and I hand drill them out).
