Rip emailed me. Not only does he have the old GWLA tooling, but he also bought the remaining raw forgings they had. 3,000 lb of them .... Here is a partial load in his garage. I guess he is in it now.
This gives truth to the old saying: "No good deed goes unpunished!"LOL, no, I'm a fool. He told me a design company wanted $10k to do it, and I was outraged. I proclaimed that there couldn't be any more than a day or two of effort to CAD that receiver from the drawings, and I'd show them. So off I went.
Three weeks later, it was finally close .
