    Trying to find out how many Dick Bradshaw's/PAE, aluminum Bulldog Blocks are in existence. Does anyone know?

    I thought they made the BBB cast iron blocks?

    Heard of all the past issues with these blocks, Dick and Jim. I am trying to determine if I have the only "Aluminum Bulldog block" in existence. Seems like one is in pieces now, any others?

    I do but have problems uploading them. Do have a few posted in this section. The other Bulldog thread a little down the list. Can send you a few if you don't see the post. Just send me your text or email, jim

    I believe RL still has 1 bare iron block. Bob Mackley has the alum he split and 1 iron block that is built. That is all I know of

    I know Larry Clark from Chicago had 1 years ago but I am pretty sure that is gone now.

    Not the best pics since it is shrink wrapped, but here is one that was in Jim Burek's shop many, many years ago.

    That is no doubt the one I got from him years ago also. Needed to modify it a few times to get it correct. Thanks

    Was going through my GS Nats pictures and found these pictures of the iron Bulldog block. This is from May of 2005.
