    No paint? I'm dissapointed

    Seriously, nice work! That takes a bunch of effort. Are you happy with how it works?

    really? looks just like a Baileigh after three weeks of use. No kidding either. Once that Chinese fake paint coat flakes off your "product" looks just the same.

    I made one of these and it's been invaluable. Don't know how I got along before without one. But isn't that the way with every tool?
