    Cool!

    I'm gonna stick with $25 AE-1Ps, though. No offense.

    Very impressive! The guy must be an engineer/machinist to do excellent work like that.

    Very interesting, but I woukld like to know why he is so generously using steel. For intance for the bottom plate, that is not even linked to the plating issue he hints at with the knobs.

    It is interesting, but I believe I saw this on a another thread.
