Nice build. I'm a 65 year old Toolmaker. I can weld inside the eye of a small needle. I inherited a small manual shaper from a 95 year old Toolmaker. He mentored me in many ways, explaining old technology. He's gone now...my time with Parkinson's Disease means I'll be hitting the Frog & Toad soon. Last night invented a welding aid for us with trembling hands from PD. As I using from. 1 to 1.6mm wire it needs some refinement. Tomorrow is TIG brazing time. Sayonara Mike
