    Yep, I'm waiting for the tt to arrive so hopefully I can get something work out with that. Unless you want just a spike I can do that too but I figured you rather have the ht/tt head.

    Sorry that I forgot to update ya on that bud.

    Also, old acad R14 is having problems putting a radius along an edge that's not parallel to the x axis (even though I changed the position of the UCS) so I'm gonna have to do 1/32" steps from finger to finger to taper it instead doing it at an angle. Dk if that makes any sense, but I'll try to get pics up once I get a rough 3d model.

    Here's what I got (had) Jake...
    CADrelease.jpg

    I got that far and it wouldn't take it so I'm having to go with just slight "steps" like you see on some releases to get the tapered effect.

    Anyways, I have updated designs so take the pic for what it's worth.

    when they taper.. they taper, not step.. you should be able to set one end narrower and the other wider, it will adjust.

    all the outside serviced need to be radiused.. and there needs to be a groove cut out for a moon

    Yeah, I just thought of another way to taper it that I'll have to try...you almost have to start with a 2d drawing and extrude it (that's what I did for the one posted above). But maybe I can calculate and revolve it so I get one side one thickness than the other another. With a little clean up, maybe it'll work...

    The taper really isn't as easy as it sounds esp. with the program I have which happens to be meant for 2d mainly, not 3d.

    And yeah, I just hadn't finished the neck yet, but I know that it's not finished, that's why I said "take it for what it's worth."
