What started this for me was that I watched an old grainy instructional video that was pretty shadowy.
I went back and looked at it again closer...
Wow lots of stuff to consider.
I didn't expect this many replies.
But now I have another decision to make about the geodetic. In the photo...
Thanks for the input you guys. I told him I would try to keep the grain as tight as possible anyway. He always gets back to me about anything I...
