    Heino's instrument Bezels...

    Recently I offered to machine some little instrument Bezels for Heino's ZX9 clock conversion...
    http://www.zrxoa.org/forums/showthre...18#post4848518

    They are pretty small and delicate and today I got a window of time to do them for him as per his dimensions...

    I trust these are what you were after Heino...

    There will be no charge for them.....as I said in your thread they are a Gift from me...

    PM me your address so I can get these out to you tomorrow...

    Oh ......and if they don't fit..don't blame me..(I'll blame the boss giving me instructions....)

    (I was told many years ago when I was in construction...."You're only paid from the neck down".!)

    I never forgot that.!

    Enjoy them my friend...and don't loose any of them..!

    God Bless you..

    I have no words Brian.

    Ok, maybe I do have a few... Those bezels are way more than I expected. Genius craftsmanship like all your projects. I am honored to feature some original BG Wells bling on my trusty old Kaw.

    I can't thank you enough my friend. I do hope that I will shake your hand one day and that I will have the pleasure to buy you some decent drinks then.

    Thanks again Sir.

    So glad they arrived safely and fitted as they should Heino...

    The 'wall' of metal on their spigotts was pretty thin between the inside and outside diameters (around 0.7 of a mm) so I had to be pretty exact with my dimensions...and there was always the danger of destorting that in the lathe Chuck while machining the 'face'...

    Anyway they look great in your instrument panel as a bespoke feature which solves your peeling problem well...!

    My pleasure to do this for you.......this forum is predicated on gestures to help a brother out and I'm happy to be part of that in my own small way..

    Best regards

    I don't understand how you get that right... When I clamp my work pieces it always leaves some ugly mark.
