    I'm on my laptop and It has a speaker hardware issue, other YouTubers were sounding the same. I'll have to try some earphones. I suspect it's my laptop.

    you came across well, 80% of videography imho, well done building and rescuing our history.

    Thank you Mark.

    Beautiful work. I hate working on things that are not held rigidly secure.

    Agreed. Live and learn, but it all worked out.

    Doing all the finishing and anodising I do, I can appreciate your finishing skills. The surface finish looks great with that satin bead blasted look.
    I actually thought the anodizer was going to do final surface prep, having no idea other than what I found online. Turns out, after I arrived there, they don't do any bead blasting or tumbling. I previously sanded with 320 grit to get out tooling marks and did not pay any particular attention to the sanding marks. The anodizer said he would hold them in the etch bath a little extra longer to clean up the sanding marks a bit. You can still see them, but they are not too bad.

    Very elegant. I don't do enough of that stuff now to take the trouble to build one of them, but there was a time when it would have been very handy..

    Beautiful work. Functional and elegant at the same time, sort of old school craftsmanship meets high tech design. On a side note, and not to derail, you mentioned that you build telescopes. Could you suggest a book that I could find to show me how to build an old style tube type, fixed power riflescope? Malcolm style, what would have been used back in the 1800's on Sharps or the early single shots. Thanks, Jim
