    Funny...that looks exactly like the ones you can buy. Even the handle looks cast.

    However...if you did make it....I'll send you $20 for one. Assuming it fits the 74 350's....I've heard there was two different spacings on the exhaust fins.

    JohnnyB, that's not a cast part....those are tumbling scuffs. That's a great piece, especially if it was done manually!

    Looks just like these:

    But of course that's Frank selling them on Ebay. Frank..didn't know you were such a big ebay seller.

    I'll give you $20 plus shipping...yeah I'm cheap.

    I put it on ebay to see if there was any interest. I programed it in FeatureCam and machined it on a Prototrak. I could make them a lot faster on the Haas.
    I do stuff like this so i don't have to work on customer parts.

    Frank,
    So how did you get that finish on the wrench? And the nice radius on all the outside corners? On both sides. Must take a heck of a jig...I still think it's cast except for maybe the fin notches....send me a pic of the wrench in the machine and I'll believe you.

    Or...sell me one for $20 and I'll believe you....see, I'm always willing to compromise.

    JB,
    Here's a picture of it in the machine. I'll sell it to for $20 + $100 for shipping....only because you're married to Mary.


    How do you think we machined these 3mm wide slots? This was a casting that wasn't good enough but it was the only way they thought it could be made..until they came to us.
    We make it for less $$ than the castings cost.


    Here's a part that was a casting but we machine out of a block of 6061.

    Frank....oh yeah...right.... hey I can throw something in my milling vise and say it's in a machine too.

    I wanna see a picture of the handle the next time you machine one from stock. Still looks to me like a cast blank that you are machine slots in. Hey... I know how devious you are...you can't be trusted...your last name ends in a vowel.

    Don't mess with me or I'll take some of that free metal you gave me and machine my own....by hand....like a real machinist!
