    Is that in May?  Hope it’s done well before then.  Opting for larger valves has been a big hold up, but the long block should be at KCW in two weeks.

    Not that Franz needs any inspiration to do Franz things, but thought this was worth sharing.  I like his linkage setup.

    I doubt it…I don’t think 25/36’s are reproduced.  Probably started its life as a NOS replacement case like this one:

    Listed since Oct 2015.  I think it may be priced like he really wants to keep it. 😀

    That’s mine in the middle.  I’m told it’ll be crated today, and shipper will pick up Monday or Tuesday.  For some reason I keep hearing Tom Petty’s “The Waiting” over and over in my head….
