Default Re: Hood Ornament

Well.....

Made it down to the foundry this afternoon. Unfortunately, Fred was unsuccessful at casting the hood ornament from the original pattern I brought him. Lettering was too tight and there was some die-lock in the cog teeth...

The good news is that the second pattern that I brought him today fixed all of those problems. He should have the first cast prototype next week and then we can get down to the economics of making a small production run.

Stay tuned....
