    The first and second guiding rims for the Waterhouse stops have been installed - solder again. A long and demanding "little" job. No problem involved with not melting the new threads, though. These were made from thin strips from the brass tubing - cut down to fit the smaller diameter.
    Next is finishing the barrel, final mount and "engraving".

    So it's finished!
    This front turning adjustment type B series was built with an iris, so Waterhouse stops will have to be fitted tight so they don't fall out when the barrel is turned.
    The interior has been covered with dead black paint.
    Produced images will be posted.

    Lovely job, calling out for some personal engraving rather than that label, imo.

    Other jobs have taken my time but here is the complete "3B" mounted on a new flange/lensboard and a dummy Waterhouse stop installed. The Waterhouse stop sits tight enough not to fall out when the front barrel is rotated through 360 degrees.
    Note that I have modified Dallmeyer's design with a eye to the lugs on the Heliar Universal to keep sticky fingers away from the barrel.
    The "proof of the pudding is in the eating" so I'll post images with it asap.
