jack the custom cap maker @-@
« on: February 21, 2017, 07:14:29 PM »

i had a descussion with my lathe erlier and we came to the conclusion it was about time to make a custom cap for my QSH.
came out rather nice i think, fits nice and snug, its partially hollowed on the inside. the thing i was worried about was that it might off balance the top or be too top heavy.........but something odd happened when i threw it @-@ it improved the balance of my beat up QSH to near perfection @-@
behold!!!!







jack is a happy cookie this day @-@

I believe you can still buy them directly from Val and Dale.
Zenith bought a bunch recently (you might want to ask him if he has extra that he can sell you: he is in Spain).
