    I think if a man sent a pattern to them for reproduction, they could pantograph about anything. Would that ever be valuable...

    My 1916 LSA restoration was also a full new reproduction stock set, although not from Prestige, made using the same technique. The results were very pleasing. It takes more work inletting and bedding than a No4, specifically to get the nose cap to fit properly, and to get the correct bed on the draws, with no gaps. To get a good finish I had to sand and apply boiled linseed oilicon many times. A very enjoyable project though.
    Cheers,
    Burton.

    Got a shipment notification already! I emailed them a question about how the wood is shaped around the mag cut off. About 20 minutes later, I had a picture that answered my question. Pretty impressed so far.
