Finally got to where I wanted to be regarding the western electric 13a throat perfect replica from original casting model and with exact same iron as originals. Details count in my world. This was made possible thanks to friends the work of time and the mandatory patience….
In a previous article I mentioned the sound differences between the various materials I have used. Cast iron is king for me and the fact it’s what was originally used by western electric makes it all the better!
These are just wonderful pieces.
