Sorry I am late getting to this remarkable piece of work. That thin blade support is awesome to the max mate. Also the locking screw on the angle adjustment bar. I have a feeling many would like to buy these items if you feel you could reproduce them without sucking up all your spare time.Can you give us a hint as to the price you would charge for each of the thin blade support and the adjustment/locking screw. I too am interested in one of the supports and two of the locking screws. PM me please.

Best regards
Leo

I would be very interested in the following mods...

Replaced the thumb screws on the micro adjuster with nylon tipped setscrews on both front and back, nylon tip will conform to the threads without damaging. Once properly tuned, I can micro-adjust on the fly without loosening or tightening the setscrews.

Next is the 1/8" hex driver for the micro adjuster, 1/8" insert bit attached to a knurled thumb knob.

Would you be interested in making and selling me this set up? If so, how much, shipped to Nebraska? Thank you so much for your consideration! Your modifications are practical, heavy duty and beautiful!!! I just wish I had your creativity and skill. I would be interested in some main angle adjusters with metal knurled knobs if u had any ideas. I don't think I would want to go with the full handle though like yours though. Just the knobs to somewhat match the micro adjustment knobs. Thanks again for your post!!!

Hi guys,

Sorry for not replying sooner.

Most parts are acquired from McMaster.com, some are fabricated.

I'll be doing a small run of mods soon. If interested, I can be reached @ This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
I'll answer all questions there :)

Best

It looked looks like a couple of you missed this? All of my correspondence with Will was done via email and that is how I got my goodies. ;)
