    Thanks guys'!

    Mornin' Cap!

    There's nothing shoddy about your punch, mine just looks fancy in a round tobacco tin...

    Knoba, Like I said I just love this thing and will be making one soon but realized you had a 17.8885mm spherical radius for your optics...how on earth did you determine that let a lone make it? I'll have to hunt for a tin though!
