Hi dear fellow Pocketschip-a-teers...

Just an update to my blog: I moved my aluminum PS out of the super small pocket-yard (EU fam. car sized garage) to turn it upside down.
And so got the chance to picture it it in a few angles in day light 8-) .

Please let me know what you think...

What an fascinating project! I've been looking at your blog with interest.

Welding aluminum isn't easy. I'm impressed you are able to build this. I hope you will weigh it in the end, to compare with the wooden version.
