Here begins the Re-Assembly!!!
I was feeling froggy last night, so I fed some 1/16" brass sheet into my stomp shear and cut a couple of 1-1/16" strips and then cut them to 3-9/16" long. Then using a belt sander to set the edge at a 45 deg angle and a hand file to finish "tuning" it, I made a pair of slides.
I now have a plan:
I am going have the brass slide etched with the serial number and appropriate patent info in as close a font as we can get to the original, then right below that in the same font I will add "remfg sheeter 2013"
