Randy,

Awesome as usual.

However, I need to know where in the hell do you buy a dapping set??????????

I want one!!!!! What a cool tool! The best thing I've seen since a punch and die set!!!

And, what kind of material do you use to fabricate the headlights and turn signals with the dapping tool?????

I don't think this is something you waltz down to your local WalMart and buy!

I never heard of such a thing!

I was telling someone this weekend that we're about due for a Randy Ditton update, figured the cold weather had you back at the bench.

Hey Randy,

There is a Harbor Freight store about 15 miles from me. Do you use very thin brass sheet to fabricate those cups?

I assume you just place the brass sheeting on the block, use the punch and hit it with a small hammer?

Damn, I think I could learn all kinds of things from you!!!!!
