Quote:That is really nice Gerald. I always thought it was so cool in their catalog picture with the woman holding one on her knee. It inspired me to make my 6" F4.5 RFT as a high school science project in 1966. I could never get the parabolic figure quite right so I sent it to Cave for a re figure and aluminizing and they sent it back to me with a beautiful matched 1/10 wave elliptical flat.
