    Really, really nice!!!! guess the only thing I could suggest is that maybe you would want to invest a little time in making a set of soft jaws for your vise....
    you have invested so much time in making that pretty... makes me sad to see the mash marks on the tubes.... ....once you have made up a set or two... you will wonder how you got by without them... copper, micarta, delrin, hardwood, or aluminum... the possibles are nearly endless...

    Do have a feeling that you will eventually invest in a hydraulic press.... useful devils, they are....

    yeah i hear ya on vice marks, im kinda kickin myself for that too, was just stupid, i think i can get them out with some sand paper though, allthough there was no reason for the extra work, sad thing is i have a press!!! I finally gave up on the helium and just went ahead and finished tigging in the runners last night, they didnt turn out the greatest but im satisfied, now just got to put a front on it and then write a program to cut out the top, Trying to decide if i should have the top removable or just weld it on, and also if i should just make carb opening a square oppening or contour to the venturi's around the outsides, thinking i might get a better booster signal if i do that? any thoughts

    you see an awful lot of them with removeable tops... must be a good reason for it....... would give you more options with minimal heartbreak and lead time if you decided to mod your setup....

    Decided to go with a removable top, All welding should be finally done now, now back to the mill for final clean up machining, drilling and taping, and then a whole lot of clean up grinding. I layed some more weld in plenum around runners for final grinding. The half inch rails for the top actually welded in ok with no helium, next time i post pics hopefully will be all done.
