Sorry Bill the Mod Men Pc was really cool but I must admit that I like this variation better, I wish you the best of luck. Very impressive for not using any machinery. We all could turn out awsome projects using cnc mills and other tools costing tens of thousands of dollars. True craftsmanship is being able to work an aswome project only with basic tools. Will follow this project closely.
