Major Setback – Dome screwed

I’ve not posted in a few days – Been feverishly working on R2 for C4. Hoping once I get back I’ll go through my photos and post some retro updates.

Unfortunately a few days ago I could have almost cried. I’ve spent months nurturing my dome and just as I was setting him down on the table after applying the Silicon to bond the two layers together he slipped out of my hands and hit the floor hard. This was the result :(

I almost gave up at this point, but I’ve muddled through the best I can and finished the dome and I will have an fully operational R2 at C4.

I can see me buying another one to do it all over again.

    Chris, I know this will sound crazy… but take your dome to a brass instrument repair shop. They can smooth those bends without any problems.

    Some Brass techs are a bit full of themselves so you will need to probably go to a few locations before you find one that is willing to accept the challeng.

    In a former career, I use to overhaul trumpets, baritones, and tubas/sousaphones. I would offer to help out, but I lack the tools that would be needed.
