The box is around five feet tall, so it would be a big vacuum cleaner. ;)

Didn't you mention something about a 6" F10 reflector?

Here's the quote "I'm building a 6 inch F10 this summer and I plan on having a rolled and riveted seamed sheet metal tube made for it"

Hah, that's funny Charlie. I happen to have a UNISYS A-1 mainframe computer I'm wondering what to do with. It has lost it's novelty as a coffe table.

No sooner did FedEx come that I had to go run out and help a friend move a bunch of stuff in my pick-up. I just got home and am half-frozen but plan to get right too it. Pictures will be posted.

And no, its not a Unitron Mount. That is "coming soon to a theater near you."

This on the other hand is the long awaited...................................................................................................................................................Leg Lamp! ;)
