By "you guys" to whom are you reffering? I would be happy to try it. But Buffalo,NY, or wherever you are, is a long way from S.B.,CA ! Is this the same coater that your machinist was having trouble with the base bending? I remember, at your workshop 4 years ago, you were explaning the problem . I never heared anything else about it. It was a big chunk of high quality stainless steel.
