Well, I almost decided not to install the NBW castings on the Jack Slip bents.

But they sure add some character,
as evidenced by comparing the bent with the NBW's installed, and one without.  

But, good grief these are small parts. 
You will notice that each one of those squares is an inch.  
It is very fussy getting them centered. 
Despite my care some of them are visibility off center. 
More of a problem on the other side than this side.  

I went back and forth on what color to paint the NBW's.  
Often times these "black iron" fittings don't show a lot of rust,
so are predominately black. 

Conversely, sometimes they do rust. 
I went with rusty.  

This one bent represents a full evening's work.
