Just to be awkward, I would like some sets of imperial bushes. :roll:

If anyone comes across this thread in 2019 (like me) looking for longer steel 3/8" rods for the Record 148 then they can be had for GBP 21.58 delivered for 78 inches online at Cromwell . co . uk . Sorry I do not have permission to post URLs otherwise I would link direct to the item.
I hope it helps someone! I am very excited to begin using this jig.

Thirteen years man.Thirteen!
With apologies to Jeremy Piven.

But still, useful addition. Did you price rod including delivery from any other vendors? I found one that seems like it would be much cheaper, and for longer lengths (3m+, over 120"), but couldn't get the price inc. VAT and P&P.

As a result of this thread, I picked up a 148 today for £8. I am not sure what the full original kit included - this one only has guides which are 1/4" diameter. Intrigued by the method of locking one of the stops onto the guide rod with a couple of opposed convex leaf springs, driven by a screw through the centre of both.
Haven't had the chance of trying it out yet, but it seems to lock the guide pretty well.
I would be grateful if anyone has a list of what the original kit included.

There's a pretty comprehensive diagram in this other recently revived thread

I think I've got some duplicate imperial bush sets, will have a look.

On the subject of rods - they are the same diameter as the rods on the the 044 plane. . . .
