    Yes, many of the manufacturers use the same bridge guard source rather than reinventing the wheel.

    Hi Steve, it's hard to believe that they sell their machines in Europe with the pork chop guard.

    You could always buy one from Felder and install it...............Rod.

    My guess is that they just aren't shipping any to the US anymore. Could always ring up Felder and see if they'd sell you one for an A3-31.

    Regarding cranking, I have a Hammer A3-41. My simple and cheap solution may not be the sexiest, but it took 20 minutes and $12, including paint.

    This looks right up my alley, Mick! Did you machine that part or could it be bought online somewhere? I'd love to give that a try.
