Re: GV10 Stop and Start Project

Yes, thanks for posting all of this. It will be an extremely valuable thread in the future for anyone who wants to convert one of the plywood designs into aluminum.

Edit to add; of course a lot of you are accustomed to much higher temps (and humidity) than what we are getting up here. ...
