      Hi Everyone,

      Reminds me of a trick supposedly used by the Japanese when they were still making junk in the early 50s. They renamed a city in Japan 'USA' so that they could mark merchandise 'Made in USA'.

      Heard that this is a true story!
      Best wishes to ya’ll.

      Sincerely,

      Jim

        I heard that too but apparently, it's false.

            I need to beat that line into my thick head.

            Ask about the lathe on PM., see what they think about it.

              How about filling those extrusions with epoxy?
