    If my math is correct, and there's not guarantee of that since I did take Real Number Theory in college, that make #20!

    Hey DK Bills, yes we have 6 remaining, and I've reserved #25 + 38mm Additions. See the PM I sent just a moment ago. And I'll get a PayPal invoice out to you. Thanks for joining the run.


    base890, I've tried Safari on iOS, OSX, FireFox & Chrome... pics are showing up on this end, whether I am logged in or not. They are also loaded into the Cherokee-G media folder here on RF. So not sure whats happening on your side of the browser.

    Just curious about the NC - any drawings? The photo doesn't appear secant-ogive. 11.5" seems a bit short for a 3.1" OD tube, even accounting for a blunt tip.

    Hi dpower! I talked with Dave & Jason about PNC3 even before this project started. See previous post above. As stated before, It appears Ron drew as an tangent-Ogive 4:1 (aka 4 caliber) for 12" in the 90s, but it does not appear to be quite a ogive tangent 4:1 either. it has a slightly slimmer profile more like an secant-Ogive in appearance. Since there are no drawings, apparently when Ron drew the LOC PNC3 back in the 90s, it is believed that the molding company made a few changes to make the NC easier to remove from the molds, and to increase strength. As stated previously, the original drawings have been lost over the years. IMHO, its so close I was not going to develop a new NC to shave a few millimeters from the profile, but its clearly not either a tangent-ogive 4:1 nor a true secant-ogive either, and it surely isn't upscale BNC55AC clone, not sure what else I can say.

    No worries, being an OCD Cherokee-D guy, I'm just curious. A custom 2.6" NC that I had turned for my L1 Cherokee-D/H, cost as much as the rest of the parts put together! :D
