    I have a small spool of SB for my MIG machine. Guess I need to read about it somewhere.

      Would it be to much trouble to machine a new one? I'm sure someone could do a foe? finish to match.

        Heck I could do that but it would take 'me' a long time to make an exact replica. I've done that with quite a few things. If I had a CNC machine that would be a different story. Tentatively I have a plan and will pursue it soon.

          If I couldn't make that on a bandsaw with a piece of plate in under an hour,
          I'd turn in my ManCard. Just saying.

              First I try to offer helpful advise.
              Then as I see it, it is fair game to be a ball buster.
