        Why would any "craftsman" allow work like that to leave their "shop"?

            A Craftsman wouldn't. Problem is there are not many craftsman left......in any field.

                The key word is craftsman. Realy good quality work is extremely hard to get. Here is one explaination. Worker/Ownwer qoutes a price to do a job, gets about 1/3 way through, realized did not qoute enough, gets mad at everyone but himself, half as... finishes it and then complains to the customer he lost money. Happens alot in this day and time. There's no more "take pride in your work" it is "make money". That's why I find myself paying (sometimes a lot more) for a quality job and returning to that shop for more work. Excuss the rant but I am in the middle of this with my body shop. A shop I have known and used for the past ten years.

                    Actually, the several sets of original R-3/4 headers that I have had looked like that (the "before" picture).

                        You mean the stock ones (on top) looked like that?
                        Those are horrible.
                        The Dremeled one is not much better (but I consider what he had to work with).

                            Chris these are what looks to me like Lionel Stone repop R-3 manifolds.I had the same problem with the ones I have. It did not take me long to clean the casting flash like is shown here.The remaining divider piece belongs in there.
