    Yes, in a sense, BN#s are unique. There should only be one left-side case in existence with a particular line-bore (BN#). And one corresponding right-side case with that same number. I'm probably misunderstanding your statement and elaborating on the obvious. Sorry.


    As I said above...Beautiful job! I'm curios about something though. Wouldn't it have been simpler to cut away some of the '41 case into straight edges and angles, then cut the Shovel case to fit? The 'jigsaw-puzzle' cuts that needed to be made in order to fit the new piece are impressive but seem like more labor than necessary. (Please excuse my ignorance.This question is coming from someone with ZERO experience in this area.)

    Hi Clark,
    The reason I didn't cut out along a straight line was to preserve as much original material as possible.

    I'm all for that idea. Thanks.
