As we go through the process of reworking each of our frames to integrate our new vise, we really examined some of the design details of each machine. Since the first frame we designed was the Specialist, we felt it could use a bit of refreshing. We have decided to loose the tab in the back with the sneaky cut out for the rear solder lug. It made it easy to plumb the machine but didn't really make sense. We are now pursuing the idea of a new tab and then cutting in a window in the rear deck stay ala the Corsair. We have also thinned down the side post a bit and played with the arches. Here is first look, we hope to have another proto next week.
