SELF INTRODUCTION: I was on the last board as bonustoolkit. I have changed that to my given name.
I started a project build there " File and Fit." I paln to continue that when I go back home in Dec. 2011. I first joined the board when Gary W had it in the year 2005. That was the time I really gained an interest in building chops. I have a long way to go, compared to some here.

I go to the hamb and jalopyjournal. Lots of handbuilt rods there with some great tips.

Did not want to hijack the thread, but the heat gun use seems unique.
