The gate was about 1" wide and 1/4" deep going into each of the
risers on the R. end, coming from a tapered sprue about 3/4" dia. at
the base and 7/8" at the top. My headstock pattern was about 1"
larger in height from parting line to top and 1/16"-3/32" thicker
than the one in the book, otherwise I followed Gingery's dimensions.
Also, I deepened the raised area between the clamp pads in an effort
to prevent too abrupt a change in cross section area.
