    Wow, send me some of those spikes! Great job. The wood looks insane of the charts good.

    Thanks Eric,

    I'm looking into doing a spike order for the guys here but just doing 12 sets (8 spikes) would cost $150 a set. So I have been looking into finding a place I can get the brass cheaper. Keep in mind these are about 3" in length and 1" in diameter. So they are big, and the only way I will run them is if all 12 sets are sold.

    So I will see what comes about them.

    Haven't chimed in yet, but have been following with great interest since the start of the thread.

    These look like an inspiring piece of work. I'm really looking forward to seeing a slew of finished and set up pics when you get these all completed.

    I've got to agree with Conradicles, Larry...those spikes are awesome...so is the workmanship. It's great to see when someone really enjoys their work!

    Can't wait to see the final product!

    Don't think you'll have trouble selling all 12 sets. The craftmanship looks great.

    If that makes you feel better knock yourself out. I already said yours is better now let it go.

    Your 1C's are the best, your the best, everything you have is better.

    Thanks for the pics but I already glued them down.
