New Jensen 20R
« on: May 09, 2019, 09:58:56 pm »
Found an old sales flyer that showed a Jensen model 20R. So I got to looking around for one and couldn't find one for sale. Talked to Doreta at Jensen to see if they would build one. No they wouldn't. So I ordered a new 20. Got it in unboxed it and took it apart. Made new board to dimension that was on flyer and built my own 20R.

Hi Randy, very very nice!

I re-posted your images large for you so they have more impact. Hope you don't mind.

Congratulations on your new Jensen :)

By the way, just noticed you added straight red handles, much nicer than the really fat ones they currently use...

And Beautiful finish on that base  8)

Would be glad to. But cant figure out how to add video? Like I've said before better with old engines than modern technology.
