Default Any updates on Tod's new heads

Are there any updates on Tod's new heads. I haven't seen any posts lately and I hope everything is going well. I'm hoping to get one of the super crow's foot 7.5 to 1 heads when they are available. Great work by a talented individual and a credit to our hobby.

The Grammar, Spelling and Punctuation Police on this forum need to slightly re-work "1929's" posting, or the meaning is entirely different. Note especially the addition of a comma between "ignorant" and "Ted". This is the key change made to avoid a misunderstanding and REALLY send Ted into orbit!. 'Sorry, "1929", but it had to be done. The sentence should read: "Pay no mind to the ignorant, Tod. There are many more here for you than them."
Class dismissed.

I figured out what "1929" was trying to say, but thank you Marshall for the English lesson.

Many times the grammar and the spelling puzzle me. My mamma was an English teacher in the old days. ken

Thanks, Ken. It took me a couple times reading that sentence to be sure what was actually being said. Nothing personal was, of course, intended towards "1929" in my corrections. We all make typos. I've made some really horrendous ones myself, even though I had proof-read my text before posting it. And English punctuation can sometimes be confusing, especially since the last class in grammar, spelling and punctuation was probably 40-50 years ago for most of us. My sole intention was to clarify what I thought "1929" meant without being insulting. We don't need Tod any madder at us than he already is. I'm sure "1929" wasn't calling Tod ignorant, but that's how the original sentence read. No harm, no foul.

I understood what 1929 was saying. Hope he is not another one to get chased off the barn over his typing. Thanks Tod for the reply.

Oh great, now you forgot to put the space between "I" and "am", and you forgot to put the appostrophe in "Tods".

Oh well, I'm taking my marbles and going home.
Oh, wait. I've lost all my marbles.

Wow, what a thread.

Anyway, I finally have a semi-commitment from my core shop to get cores in the next few weeks.(2-3). As soon as the sample cores arrive (6 or 8 pcs) I will get sample castings and see how things look. The first castings will be the 6:1 version and then the crow's foot.

Understandable... I for one thank you for your work for the Model A community -- a lot of Model A's would likely be headless!

"Who is Ted?"
Ha, ha, ha! Good catch, "Forever4"!!! As many times as I proofread my typing before posting it, the name "Ted" looked right to my eyes, even though my brain was trying to say "Tod". Yikes!!! That's a bit scary. Now I've probably P.O.'d Tod AND Ted, whoever Ted may be. 'Just goes to show that the typo gremlins get us all sooner or later. I've made some real beauties in typos! 'Never denied that...
