The last piece of brass that needed threads decided to be very, very, VERY uncooperative yesterday.  Luckily we had enough stock to keep at it until we got it done.  We had to cut the set of the threads THREE times!  I was pretty frustrated at that point.  One of the sets of busted threads is still hanging off the back of the pommel-in-progress.

Today I have been boring out the emitter assembly towards it’s final bore of 1 inch.  It is slow going.  I have to take light cuts because of the sheer length that I have to cut on.  I have also been doing more research on the switch issue and the LED that I will be ordering tomorrow.
