That was an awsome, awsome post/project.  I'm glad I didn't join this place when the thread was started because I couldn't stand to wait to see the end result!

Awesome.  It's so great to see offsets being rescued and restored, instead of parted out.

Junkyard God ,  it would have been impossible to fit klusons without drilling new kluson screw holes and having to fill in the F-tuner screw holes , which would have been visible and IMO unsightly
relaxing alternative to doing actual work ...
