Waiting for smooth rods

Well now I have the fittings attached to the top and bottom. Steppers and Idlers attached... if those smooth rods would just arrive, I will be ready for assembly. Note the cardboard box is not part of the build, I put it there to show the top above the bottom for the photo :-) )
The smooth rods cleared the sorting office in LA on July 9 and are supposed to be on their way to Australia. Its now the 19th. I hope they didnt sort them onto a rowboat instead of a Jet.

    I've been waiting a month for rods from the UK. They are caught within customs.

  3. Hi Bill D, I am also from Australia and interested in building a Rostock. Just wondering why you didn't buy your smooth rods from a local supplier. Is there some quality problem or is the price just better overseas?

  4. So happy the shop is open!! Got some lovely things that sound great-thanks so much!
