I love it

Lodge pole pine box wrapped in alligator with all titanium chassis and hardware

Machined ball bearing feet

Copper back plate for controls and hook up

It sounds as sweet as everyone on the forum has raved

Especially good for Mr Benny Goodman and Mr Tommy Dorsey

Many thanks to all who have gone before and left the bread crumbs for me to follow

Hi,

Nicely done!

How is titanium for punching? I've always wanted to work with it, but is special order... don't want to do so if it's as impossible as stainless (sick)

Cheers!

Thanks for the nice comment. Punching above my weight on this project

Your instinct about titanium is right on. We used Commercially Pure gr4 - it is very like stainless. We machined the tube holes, we don't have a good enough punch for Ti

Mostly Ti alloy 6Al 4V is available on Ebay but it is much more difficult to machine, we don't use it. So don't leap unless you're ready (stop)

Cheers OM!
