    Congratulations Matus.

    And just thought I'd mention that Aaron has moved on from the hand jig to a 5000lb CNC machine. Maybe a power hammer in your future? Will enjoy following your progress here and on your blog.

    Thanks Doug. I follow Andy on IG and he really stepped-up his game A power hammer? Maybe one day, but I do not keep my breath and rather focus on what I can actually do today and try to learn as much as I can and improve my skills. And there is a lot to learn and a lot to improve upon
