Thanks for the compliment, I work hard at what I do. Vernon picked at me for being a perfectionist...this stuff ain't perfect but at least the effort keeps the quality factor up near where it should be.
The transition is indeed pretty good, not just rolled edges and crap like that. It thinned the wall down pretty well where the flange meets but didn't go through, left approx. 1/16-3/32 wall in a few spots but still more than structurally ridgid enuff overall to stand up to what Vernon will put it through.

thanks again, gotta go get to work.

Everyone should brace themselves, I have a feeling that Wynn will have a jaw dropping SC before too long and it will be hand crafted by him.
