3 Front Lames fitted - Rough finish

Last night, after the wife time, I had about an hour in the shop, so I figured I'd see how far I could get towards widening the neck opening in the base plates to fit the neck lames..... I managed to get the opening widened to accommodate the front lames, but I still need a little fine tuning.

Top View - 3 Front Lames fitted

I still need to fit the rear lames, which requires trimming most of the lames and some futzing around the joint areas so the plates alternate front/back/front/back/front/back for the 3 sets of plates, so I blade can't slip in from the front. I'm also going to need to trim the bottom of the front middle lame a lot as I just used an existing knee lame as my pattern and figured I'd trim to size....
