      I would say it's the forefront of woodworking. In colonial times, all the woodworking used hand tools. Then along came power, table saws, etc. That took some of the hand artisan out of old woodworking but introduced new capabilities - the norm that many of us would call "woodworking" today. Your just at the leading edge of tomorrow's woodworking.

        I adapted divider head and did some manual 4th axis machining.

          Is this build using the Accuton C158?

              Try to do xovers for him. The ones you did for my big 3-way are ridiculously great. Theyreally just keep up all with the $$ I put into my other components!

                  No, it's the cell midrange with the optional mount.

                      This is Rick's design. I am sure the x-over design is top notch.
                      We are contemplating another design, similar to this one in the future.
                      My friend has a pair of ATC midranges which I'd like to compliment with Viawave GRTs and beef up on the bottom with Excels Magnesiums. So, that would be something to put up against Raal/Accuton/Iluminator combo.
                      But, that's in the future.

                      3D model is there. It can be build again.

                      Well, if you in NY for a few days, I can use a pair of hands. I take interns from time to time.

                      Good catch. Sandblast it, oil it and it's a sculpture. Nothing like old cast iron. I have a couple of smaller stands at home, used as table bases.

                        I suspect companies that do eventually provide 3D solid models of their products will gain some loyal customers.
                        A few years ago I requested and was given a STEP model for the external shape of a TangBand driver to support some 3D simulations I was performing. It wasn't a full model just the external shape which is all that customers are likely to require and all that I requested. I would expect that any driver manufacturer would supply such models on request to customers that need them and can be trusted to keep them to themselves. DIY folk and one-off manufacturers don't normally deal with the manufacturers directly and so would be more at the mercy of what a distributor can be bothered with.

                          The pedestal finish doesn't look half bad the way it is, and the shape is superb.

                            C90, nice. wanted to try that driver for ages but the price kept rising. I think its around 450 euros now, or more.
