Dear lord! I wish I had the patience to invest that much time into one project (does a gf count? )

So, how much you're going to sell this one for to make a profit? Expecting to produce 5 more before 2012?

I am still amazed at how good it looks!!! It's shiny!

first off if you want to keep her and not nag at your play-time you will have to put much more effort into her, our kids all have their own family's now so I have the free time.

How much is your time worth, as I doubt anyone would pay for my time

and thank you once again for your comments, it really makes a work-log fun for me

Now that is a fair trade


I had a problem that the pictures were taken before final mounting, thus when clamped down a couple of solder joints let go in my light wiring, poor solder job !!!

Re-did now with 4 strings of 2 lights and mounted and tested.

Those case feet are not right, maybe because they are drawer knobs so on to making some that will fit.

Got some aluminum from work that should be right size, saw spacers. Hacksaw and look 4 rough squares.

file them square and then use hacksaw to make slices to help ease filing, and now octagons

Good work on those man! Will you be putting anything under the feet so they don't possibly scratch surfaces (hardwood,etc.)???
