    Ummmm Chaz, the handles all look exactly the same? It's like you tried to do that. Well done.

    Strange things happen at times

    Actually an interesting exercise as there were three different socket sizes with a need to blend for an apparent match in shape.

    Chas....Very well done! In my limited experience, that is the toughest type of turning to do....duplication turning. Tough thing to do. Very well done Sir!
