Default Sage TCX 6119-4 switch

Finished up another build. Friend supplied the blank and an outline of what he wanted.

Blank: Sage TCX 6119-4 switch
Wraps: Clear with two turn metallic gold trim wraps.
Handles: Meiser style with Resin Wood inserts
Seat Lemke .740" with Resin Wood insert with CA finish
Guides: Snake Brand Universals and classic style strippers (sorry can't recall the specific brand right now).

Rod had a couple of first for me.... rubberized cork and wood inserts. Labor intensive, but well worth it.
