Ok nice to know someone in Canada that can help, anyway I will build them per plans (Emeralds) in 15 mm with additional bracing on mouth and some on the inner horn path.(1" batting). Still thinking about the Levan extension when used by 2 stack Emerald's. Thanks!

Yes all of them gone too soon, the clubbing lifestyle and AIDS.
Umm I don't think Craig passed away did he?? (Shorty)

I didn't mean Gary or Craig as I never met them, just Richard and Larry.
