    Default Foster prism

    Wanted to thank Denis for machining one of his 18" prism castings for me. Not only a very nice casting that's a joy to scrape but only 0.0015" out of flat to begin with. Very easy and quick to get to a decent ppi. The shipping box Denis made was even shipping company gorilla proof! (seriously)

    Got to admit, I don't really need the prism, but it looked like a fun project, and after scraping in one of Denis's 36" featherweights I looked forward to working on another of his castings.

    And I hear rumors of another casting design coming out of the Foster foundry in the future... ;-)

    Best,
    Lucky7

    Works of art, the both of them.

    If Denis' shipping "case" for the camelback was rather neat, the one for the dovetail was brilliant.
    Probbably next spring before my one-each are done with heat-cycling and off for final finishing, but realistically, they were each directly usable on arrival.

    Get 'em while you can.
