Fireball Tiller

Post by zaphod79 » Tue Feb 19, 2013 6:58 pm

Just put the second coat on Fireball 11042, getting ready for my first season with her.

Will post some pics later!

Want her to look lovely, on the first day. However the tiller is what looks like an old aluminium tube, with 3 bands of tape, which are hiding various sized holes. This is rammed in to a Rondar stock with the only thing holding it there, is the fact it is so tight.

Is this the original tiller?

What could I replace this with that would a) look like nice & b) do the job.

Thanks

Is this one of your Merlins?
Where did you get info?
I thought that was the number, do you know if she still lives?
