2 quick questions:
I am assuming the numbers are metric dimensions, but what is the “/” with 2 numbers, just confirming that is upper-limb/lower limb?
Would you mind sharing how you do the lnlayed strike plate? They are very well done. Is the area burned with a stamp before filling with material?
Thanks very much.
