Mal is that a very tidy weld around the rim or a slight chatter mark from a round nose tool if you cut them from solid, looking good either way

mal,

As Jason suggests ... I'm quietly watching, but haven't felt worthy to comment !

The photo copied above did worry me for a moment surprise

... but I presume the bend in the gear on the right is just lens distortion.

Very true.

I am very interested. smiley The lack of comments on my part is due to my lack of knowledge I have regarding this build. But please keep posting.
