Hey Philly,

The stainless lever cap is just fit in that photo - I have to run out and buy a new bit to drill for the pin. I should have it installed by the end of the day.. with an appropriate pic:)

I am also just finishing up an A5ss - pics of the pair should be pretty sweet!

I love the highly polished chamfers. I'd love to see a polished ss lever cap.

Good morning Dan,

Thanks. The polished chamfers is a new deviation for me - and I really like it. It is done with 2000 grit wet/dry paper (done dry). It does not have the same polished effect on bronze though - only the steel. The lever cap is polished more than I normally do as well - but not to a mirror as the chamfers are. You will have a chance to critique it in a week.

See you soon,

Very nice. SS is the new Brass.

I am going to dig up some titanium scrap to make ferrules for a turning tool that I need to re-handle.

Hi Chris,

It certainly appears to be! Stainless has made appearances in planes before - but I think these are the first to replace what was traditionally bronze or gunmetal with stainless. It is a brutal material to work with - but the pain and suffering is certainly worth it!
