Hope you don't mind me nicking the design, Excellent job by the way. Hope mine turns out like it.

Thanks for that TOPGUMM.

All the best Paul.

Borrowed it myself.


Jesus, didn't realise that was what they cost. They don't look that difficult to make either.
Thanks for the link. Paul.

Yeah, I was being a bit casual I guess.
I do have an idea for a mod on that design that may make it easier though & make it fixable in place so I don't have to hold it. I'll give it a go & let you know if it works or not ok. It's all learning experience so never unworthy of effort isn't it?
Thanks again for the pics

You don`t hold that one, it locks onto engine or mount I think.
