Vintage-style idea - restart

Heavy sigh... Yes, I see... You're right, you're absolutely right.
And an Emott chassis with a 1/16" thick windowed drop arm to boot! That must have been fun to make. Historical fact, not nostalgia, dictates what was actually used. Still...
I just like the Nutley style stamped drop arm better. To me, it seems like a much "cleaner" design.
So, boys and girls and potential "vintage-syle" builders of all ages, there are two historically accurate and correct ways to build drop arms; stamped and built-up. Both will work, take your choice!

Professor motor has a bunch of guide tongues from Cobra just like that Parma piece Rick
Paul, the "Cobra" tongues you refer to are a different shape than the Parma that Rick T. showed.
They need to be modified quite a bit to make them fit a Jet Flag.
