Hi Jeff02!

This looks very much like my 10V. You are a bit ahead of me. Looks great!

I will probably have some questions for you..... Good luck with your project.

Kevin

Jeff did you invest in BA taps or did you change hardware size to US Sizes?

I have been using 600 grit wet and dry sand paper with a lot of elbow grease and water.
I guess I should say I start with a file, then go to sand paper starting with 300 grit and working up to 600.
BTW I have just used the 300, I save the 600 until the very last.

Nice Jeff. Thanks for the photos. You're getting me motivated to start my PM Research steam drilling engine.

Cheers,
