Default Al carburetor cover.

Al carburetor cover.
I quickly made an Al carburetor cover according to the model using Eckold and EW. Want to see the production process?

Invention is a combination of brains and materials.
The more brains you use, the less materials you need.

Iíd like to see the in-progress pics too.

Iím guessing you used thumbnail dies to shrink the sides down first, then turned the flange and used a stretcher on it. The even radius from the top to the side is really nice.

Absolutely show the process!
The forum was developed for that purpose, we are not just a digital museum.

The activity level seems to slow down here during the summer months in the USA so donít let that lead you to think there is no interest in your posts.

Show the process, unless you want to take your knowledge to the other side of the Styx.
In the morning I was convinced that this was the only solution.
