I have metal Fin-Kwik units. You made it sound like there were two versions of metal Fin-Kwik units. I also have the later version plastic fin alignment jig Estes sold. The Fin-Kwik inventors son had contacted me a number of years back stating he was trying to bring them back to market. Haven't heard anything since.
