Custom tuner for the FT-897D

Here is a pic of the custom tuner and handles I have built for my Yaesu FT-897D with the help of my friend Robi.
The components for the tuner have come from a manual MFJ tuner and both the handles and tuner box are made of aluminum.
I made a QSO with Italian station IZ0PAU (Marcello) from Rome on 20m SSB to test the station with an indoor whip.
