    Got any up to date pictures of your Fritz?
    Last time I saw a picture it looked cleaner than my kitchen.

      The pic of the BP on teh Milwaukee shows exactly the same sort of adapter that is on mine (smaller, and a V-head with no quill, though).

      I can vouch for the hassles of having no quill. But it often can be wirked around. You end up cranking ht knee a lot, and hoping the knee lock doesn't lift the knee at all.

          No I had to put it on the back-burner , as my windows were almost on the verge of dropping out of my house.

          Nearly finished the windows ........but another job has come along... leaky core plug ..behind flywheel of my car (engine out )plus LPG conversion on my car... LPG ecu controlled sequential injection...major brain ache time.
          and like always ...........it turns into a big job with me ..ie engine out ..replace cambelt,water pump, clutch, paint the thing...LOL...then knowing me ...head off, porting ..and on and on ....

          so will probably start back on the fritz in about a month and a halves time.

          here's what it last looked like :-

              Great finish ,Great looks and probably very corrosion/chemical resistant...but sadly is easily chipped and for what the stuff is ...it's far too expensive.

              it's two pack polly over two pack epoxy.

              Dont bother

              all the best...mark

                I did a few machines up with 2 part epoxy and 2 part poly just because I had it as left over s from other jobs.It looks niceat first but is a waste of time really.wouldnt do it again
                I now have been putting on automotive primer and single part poly with a foam brush.works fine .
