Ob finally complete with piers

Hi all,

some quick pics with my new piers in my OB in NE Victoria.

Used them Sat Night and it was so nice and made such a huge difference to the whole process.

Looks great! I like your simple top plate solution. A pier is sooooo good!

Enjoy!

Maybe not for this thread, perhaps a PM, how do you find the AZ-EQ6 to work with?

Thanks for sharing Grant. I like the laminated ply top plate idea which is good alternative when you don't have access to a lathe and a lump of metal.
