Huh, I might have to look into that battery. I have a CF Braille battery that's 6lbs, but that's about 5-6 years old at this point. Good stuff Simmonzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Excellent savings! Did you fab up the (brass?) posts or were they something you found premade?

Hope you have changed your studs - 5mm spacer and stock studs will not work well together.

Got it - I see you actually have to swap the studs over though. Not a problem for a man of your considerable mechanical skills, I'm sure
