First time ran at the Pod, the surface is just incredible and don't mind paying £25 to use it one bit! Ran a 13.4 at 113 on first run, slower on second due to blowing a head gasket but never mind- still happy :D

What head gaskets are you running Tom? We ended up going to copper with o-rings in the end. Bit of a bother getting them cut though.

I've just asked Ferriday for a price on copper gaskets. Looks like the may be 200 notes each ???

Perry,
nice bit of soft bit of copper hot watertank (used, so it has enealed at 85deg C for 20 years) and a set of leather punches and a piece of MDF then I'll lend you my trapanning tool (£7 from the local hardware shop) and a couple of evenings work, jod done, or better still get RalphH to run a couple up on his waterjet.
Best regards
Mike

Hi,

If anyone intends getting any cut, let me have a price and I will order some as well, maybe get a whole sheet discount or something.

Cheers

Alan
