FOG, I am sure your parents named you well. Alot of us are just plain transparent. Any way another totally unrelated forum jogged my memory.The cylinder already has the typical Chinese chrome plating. I dunno how long it will last, but for $25 Amazon will have another one here tomorrow. Why worry?
Hey Tom, I got these doo-dads in a box of mis-matched gauge blocks.

Hard to see in the pic but they got the Ford logo on them. I don't know about anybody else but I never saw one of those in a Ford! But I did finally find a use for one. I mounted it up on my tool post, used it to find center first, and then backed the cross out the radius I needed to match the OD of my squish cut, and scribed a line. Worked good!

Combustion chamber's next.
You mentioned 1-2-3 blocks the other day and I have a pair that appear to be shop made by a man named Mel.
