Yeah, I see that now. I was replying to the first page info, and I see now that there are four pages :)

Nice looking build! I wish I had the machines you do! So jealous!

Charles.
Thanks for the support. Been a long road so far, I'm hoping to get it finished in the next 6 months.

Love that damper rod set up.  One of the cleanest/best integrated set ups I have seen!

It took a bit of working out, I'm quite pleased with it. I didn't want something that stuck out in front too much, I wanted to keep it as tight as I could.

Things have been slow lately, managed to get some bits done today and started to pull the dents out of the tank.









Not the perfect job, but a lot better than it was.

I needed to cope some tube to make support struts. Not having a 22mm hole saw, plus in my experience hole saws donít cut very neat.

Luckily my milling machine has a tilting head, although it is not that rigid when tilted, but it did the job.

Great build! Love that you can do all the construction work yourself and have the right equipment!
