    Question: What 1911 to use as a canvas?

    I also use the Lysol TBC for removing bluing but haven't tried it to remove Parkerizing. Off hand I don't think it will remove Parkerizing but I've been known to be wrong before!

    Today's Egret Pic

    The last time I saw one of these was when I lived in South Florida and one was perched on what I thought was an old log floating in the Miami Canal west of West Palm Beach. My son and I were paddling a 12 foot canoe in the canal fishing and when we passed by it at about 10 feet the log suddenly...

    INKS please

    I've been using the ink that came with it for about a year now, both for engraving transfers (of which I do little as I prefer drawing on the item directly) and for our home use and the black reservoir is still half full, plus I still have another full black tub that came with the printer.

    Limestone morning glory garland

    Most of the newer compressors are really junk, needing replacement after a few years. I sold my old one years ago and now am attending auctions for old machine shops and gas stations looking for a decent compressor to replace it. Dumb move on my part.

    interesting movie

    In high school I was assigned to a sign painter through DCT (Diversified Cooperative Training) where I went to classes until noon and the worked with a company in the afternoon. I learned a lot from working with him and I guess he was pleased with me as it wasn't too long before I was working on...

    Show and tell

    Those are almost the exact words told to me by Ken Hurst when I said I was so afraid of making a mistake on a piece. He then proceeded to grill me on my engraving technique. I certainly miss the old boy.
