two styles of late 47 necks

Here is a pic of the neck on the new 47 that my daddy just bought. There isn't a UU embossed on it. Our new 47 is in the 10,600 serial number range.

Here is the other side of the neck. This is a late 47 neck casting.

Here is the embossed uu that was on another frame neck. This neck is one that I just got from the foundry. There are pics of the mold and waxes in previous posts,.

New neck!!!! It still has to be machined though. I am re tubing a late 47 frame, and I figured that I should make some necks in case I needed one some day. I am glad that I did.

  1. Matt, Do you have to do anything to compensate for shrinkage when the part is cast?
