    Yea it can, if i dont keep her under my thumb its more work in the end. This was my 1st time to actually remove the posts and do a proper rda clean.

    Another thing as i was walking to the toilet to take a shit, now currently replying half naked ( not weird at all) im looking for a decent engineer that could make a few components fully copper for me. Ill provide the copper. There are some coated components in the button i would rather change so that i have a full copper device and contacts etc. If you could point me to someone I'd appreciate that. 1st aftermarket custom KEEN.

    I can get you a cheaper alternative. Think is was like 150-200 bucks. Same thing and has 4 levels of speed. Including the tools and a small block of polish.

    Nah, out of my ballpark, never worked copper on the lathe before and I hear its very tricky.
    @KZOR knows a guy in Goodwood that did the homogenizer, atty stands drip tips etc, Nico Lubbe, if I remember right.

    It is indeed a @#$% to machine copper, particularly so in that it hardens whilst you're machining it and then softens with the mildest of heat treatments, (aka as it cools post machining) .... painful, as multiple tiny cuts of short duration are required for accurate machining :facepalm:
