  4. Well howdy everyone! It seems I've fallen a little behind with my shop hours. Having been occupied with moving from one state and back, a job search, and balancing work with play (not much time for play anymore), I've neglected to complete or even start a blade.

Sure cuts nicely and a pleasure to

  5. My makers mark showed up the other day. This one turned out ok....first one needed more etch. Probably would have been ok if I would have been smart enough to clean the top of the stencil.

  11. My pure-breed Africanis was diagnosed with Kennel Cough 3 weeks ago, medication helped but he declined immediately when it was done.......last week they diagnosed Lymphoma, and by the looks of it extremely aggressive. He was a happy and healthy 9-year old, the best non-Labrador I've ever met, and I'm very sad watching his decline....
