An excellent reminder that not all FNG's are new to the scene or without skills.
Congrats! Great work.

What the? How was my scale model seat how to NOT in the running? My god man, this is an outrage! Just because it really wasn't a tech article and only seen by us model nerds.......
He he,
Cool that a FNG won it!! Way to go dude,
Doc.

I think he deserves a more prestegous title as well.

Thanks so much to everyone that voted for me. All the positive comments mean a great deal. I’m just a regular guy working in his home garage, hackin’ away like most guys here on the H.A.M.B. With all the incredible talent here, I never dreamed winning was possible.
A couple of guys thought that this project was “too much work!” Well, for me…when I’m in the garage fabbing-up something, it’s never “work”. This is what I love to do in my spare time.
I’d love to have any of the tools offered. After much thought, I’ve decided on the “Box and Pan (Finger) Brake”. It will be a nice luxury to make a bracket or channel without looking around for something with a corner to cut it out of.
I also would like to extend a grateful thank you to Shane Henderson and Baileigh Industrial for sponsoring tech week. Hopefully they’ll be back.
