I just noticed you do some real nice tail wraps.

Ya know I need to get a life when I start studying tail wraps. I rather be studying tails in the blue room.

I can't wait for the fishies to return.

if you go to the winter summit ill show you how i do a tailwrap. the longer plugs cant always get the wrap i want due to the length of the pre-bent wire sections i usually buy from nj and m&d..and the long pieces of 316L i have is not anealed, so its a pita to work with, so not all of the longer plugs i make get the 316L, only a select handfull.
