Thanks!

Vents are drilled. Still a little dingy from the cutting oil. The camera perspective makes them look off-center but they actually turned out pretty well.

The vents are drilled 9/64", roughly 3/16" dia. at the top of the chamfer.




Mine (left) could use a little more cleanup, but the other will be on it's way to Alaska soon.

Looking good!

And then there was one . . .



This one is boxed up, ready to go to the PO. From there, Alaska!

3,667 miles, as the (very tired) crow flies.

I'll bet the service from FL to AK is better for your 6 1/2 lb mortar than it was for my 66 1/2 lb thundermug from CA to TX.

The boxed mortar weighs over 8 pounds. I did some serious packing.


PS: My T-mug is a baby in comparison, it only weighs 18 pounds.

OBTW: I'm in Georgia not Florida.

It's only 40 miles due south to the FL line. But you can't get there from here, swamp's in the way.

The majority of the Okefenokee Swamp (and all of the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge) is in Georgia, starts here and heads south the the state line and beyond. The part of the swamp that crosses into Florida borders the Osceola National Forest.

Nice work and finish. The silver solder blends well.

I was confusing Lake Okeechobee with the Okefenokee, although the way the USPS works, something you mail locally might get ultimately shipped from an FL location.
