Progress remains slow, but any progress is good in my view.
So what I have right now is still no laser cut hinges ready.
It seems the laser guy is doing the CAD drawings for me free of charge and hence is only getting them done when he has free time.
Obviously I will still be paying for the materials and cutting, but it seems like a reasonable deal, if all it is costing me is a little time.
I do have other things to work on and so have posted that progress, which is more work on my inner panel.

Remember I am a total novice at this and hence no plans to work from, it is all just being put together straight out of my head in the hope that it will work out.
So far so good...
My method and approach to each step is probably a little unorthodox and there maybe easier ways, but for now I just keep chiselling away at it.

Boy, my bead roller has become a very handy piece of equipment in my shop right now.
Also, I can now appreciate the need for a variable speed controller, albeit in any form, as long as you have something to mange speed according to the task at hand and its complexity.
