Title: Adolph Bermphol
Post by: lucifer on November 11, 2008, 11:51:59 am
Ok so I've been making some good progress on my Adolph Bermphol and I've hit a snag my soldering skills are next to useless when it comes to making the rails and superglue just isn't up to the challenge

So my question is does anyone know where I could get 55mm > 60mm 2 hole stanchions or would I be best just to try brass rod / pipe and drill the holes myself?

Iíll put some pictures of the build so far later  (once Iíve taken some )   O0

Thanks in advance
Jay
