    Good job, there is allot of satisfaction in doing it yourself :big_smile: What bits were done with the CNC punch?
    12 deg V will go some places :exciting:

    Yeah cheers Mike, ive been a sheety for 20 years now and love making things so over the winter im going to have a crack at making my own stainless exhausts ,already on to the laser boys to cut the manifold plate out for me. Only the hood sheet went through the turret to punch the tread design for me everything else i cut by hand taken straight off a scale model id made ,and as for places it will go ive been into the prop variety since i was a wee fella so im pretty green with the old jet boat ive already had it stuck in a lake how bads that :shame: Ill have to tow her up your way meet you guys and go for a run one weekend. Butch
