Watts #221
« on: May 25, 2010, 11:53:20 PM »

This video is a little tribute to Walter, thanks a lot for a great Top. This is truly a piece of American Top History; it is not just beautiful it plays great!!!

Regenerating is so simple with this top, but be prepared to work out.

Walter I added your website to the video, please let me know if this is appropriate, otherwise I will remove it.

Hey, that is a very good rc, specially considering that you started so recently! Congrats!

Today I took my 5" Watts (#214) from the fireplace mantel and played with it a bit. Then I noticed the very small dimple on the crown from the lathe and decided to try the toothpick/giraboli trick. I used a Saturno Roller as a base and worked fine:

You are really rocking and rolling.
