I finally put some finishing touches on the 8x20. I still have a long way to go but I thought I would post some pictures of the rail and standard. I used the brass from my Kodak 2-D and nobs from Barry Young (thanks again Barry, they look great!). I used some brass on the inside and outside of the rail as a nice detail. On the outside I thought it would reduce friction and help with wear. Still need to attach the rail to the base, which is done except for the gear track, drill holes in the base for the tripod and the rail supports etc. thanks for everyones help so far.
