Runar, I think your version looks much better than the originals.

How did you form the round brass tube into that shape?  The bend looks clean and crisp where you change the diameters.

Runar, you should do a tutorial on forming barrel bands. You seem to really have the method down.

I always enjoy reading your rebuild stories (Sagas?)!  Your talent and resourcefulness in figuring out how
 to fix things is amazing.  I'm sure this comes from many years of practice on other projects you've completed.  Thanks for sharing!!
