Beauty is in The Eye of the Beholder
This is what the man that sold me the taper parts a year or so ago does. He's an old machinist and has several shops on his spot.
Look at this beautiful work. Some may think it's putting lipstick on a pig, but in 1954 a Logan 200 cost about $410.00 Today that works out to $4,161.01 if you figure 3.5% inflation each year. So this man basically made the Logan brand new, plus it has a lot of tooling. It is normal to spend more on tooling than you spent on your machine. He's only asking $500 over the adjusted original price for a lot bells and whistles to go with it.
She is basically new. I saw it when it was in process. He does really nice work.
Memories of Mountain Home and DAG
Mountain Home, TX is where the gunsmith that Dean Grennell recommended for building the .45 Super used to live. The gunsmith is probably gone, and so is Dean. Dean was a great guy. Just read his stuff. We corresponded for a couple years when I was reading his work to learn how to do what I needed to do back then. He was class, front, back, clear through the middle.
