Moots,...

but it was a quill made into a A-Head.
If you look at the difference in weld between the Moots (which is pretty 2) and the weld made by JimKish you are impressed by the quality.
The big difference is that most of the welders weld twice (Moots does this also)
first time to connect and the second weld is for the looks,..Jim does this in 1 time and is therfore able to do this much nicer.
