Well, you've been a busy bee. Nicely coming along!

Didn't respond to your question as I haven't been near mine these days, sorry.

No problem :) Fortunately I have plenty of time that I can spend in the workshop.

Also I made a prototype of the cone bowl supporting piece but I think it will be good. I have to make 4 of these. I cut and welded the corner where it has a bending as I can't imagine how they bent it without breaking the edge.

Very nice job and loads of confidence to start that project!
