Congrats to Wade on his AP1600! Hope he isn't the jealous type as AP showed me some love this week too.....

Beautiful machining on the counterweights. I'm sure there is more of that to come!

AP's packaging job was as good as the mounts they build. I can't remember ever getting something that seemed to have the care put into just getting it boxed together for shipping.

Wade's posts show the packing very well, so I'll just jump ahead.....

Thanks everyone! I was excited to get it and I really do appreciate the opportunity to share that excitement with all the good folks on CN. I will probably burst with joy when the 175EDF gets here!
