    I know everyone is just dying to see how the RoG build is going and there has been some progress in the shop.

    But first, JF won his division in The Everglades Challenge this year.

    Finding some stainless steel tube with the right ID turned out to be a challenge. I had to drill out some existing stock from McMaster. I sleeved them in fiberglass to separate the steel from the carbon. Richard made me some blocks out of Bubinga, a crazy-hard hardwood from Africa.Name:  IMG_1946.jpg

    Getting it off the mold took some serious persuasion.
