The crown guard had some holes drilled into it and some damage, so I thought I would try and braze it.

As I was brazing I noticed a hair line crack appear. I think it would of been better doing it with the mig using bronze wire, then their wouldn't have been so much heat.

We need some COVID therapy!!! Any more progress on the PK. You don’t know how much we appreciate your build progress. I went to take a picture the other day and when I looked at it, it wasn’t my machine work…. It was bloody me! So keep camera out of my hands! LOL

I am curious about how the way system looks as it’s first generation.

Nice finish. Did you use RAL 7011 ?
