I drew up the split last night. Can someone please measure the width of their large sparks?

I had the same idea last year, did the research, printed the templates but haven't found the time to build the press and such...still would like to finish it sometime.
Just keep at it. Ive been doing this build for around 8 months, a bit here and a bit there.
