    Hi All,

    Here is a pic of my newly manufactured Willits Bros nameplate. I will shortly have a Day Island tag as well, with an Artondale tag in the works. I'll not be able to do the last version of the Willits tag, as it just doesn't lend itself to micro machining.

    I'll soon have the early style deck cleat. This will the the "T" shaped one.

    That's pretty sweet - wish I had a Willits to put it on! :D
    Beautiful work.

    Willits "Day island" tag

    here is a pic of a newly fabricated Day Island tag, done for Michael Grace. The next endeavor is an Artondale tag. These tags are available if you are restoring an older Willits.
