Hedgewalker
(119 items)

This platter was made by Macbeth Evans Before WWII. It has a low uranium content but definitely glows proving it to be pre war.The US banned uranium use in glass during the war.

    Hey HW... I think someone told me once, but I am trying to buy a black light... Do you have a recommendation. Preferably a cheap one!!
  3. Hedgewalker Hedgewalker, 7 months ago
    Thanks walksoftly,Doc and kerry !!! I got some at Walmart for around ten bucks that work well.Spencers also has them. If you want a portable one for hunting check Ebay.This is the one I use.

    I like this portable one... Will I be able to take cool pictures with it? Or is it better to get a stationary one? Thanks for the info...

    Honestly... it was a typo.
    I thought walksoftly posted it.
    I tried to play it off as if I didn't mess up, but ya kinda called me out on it. :^P
  13. Hedgewalker Hedgewalker, 7 months ago
    Hey Phil...Check out comment 3.
  14. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 7 months ago
    She is pretty much a stalker though, or a spy, maybe she has a voodoo doll !
  15. Hedgewalker Hedgewalker, 7 months ago
    I always did want a stalker ; )
    You didn't mess up you're Psychic my name is Dave (Among others )
  16. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 7 months ago
    That flashlight is neat, is that what you use or something like it ??
  17. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 7 months ago
    Sorry I see that you do, I am just a bit thick today !~
  18. Hedgewalker Hedgewalker, 7 months ago
    No need to be sorry Phil,I always take it while out hunting.Some pieces are very hard to tell without the light.
  19. walksoftly walksoftly, 7 months ago

    And Dave pw-collector, I've always address them as Hedge, David and Dave, unless all three have been close in their visits, then Hedge, Pw-collector and walksoftly.
  27. Hedgewalker Hedgewalker, 7 months ago
    I also answer to Greenman.
  28. Aimathena Aimathena, 7 months ago
    I hope that's bc you're good with lawns and not from picking o.O LoL
  29. kerry10456 kerry10456, 7 months ago
    Oh there's another missed opportunity, ;-)
  30. kerry10456 kerry10456, 7 months ago
    Okay, I'll be nice and quit thinking the thoughts I've been having
  31. Hedgewalker Hedgewalker, 7 months ago

  33. kerry10456 kerry10456, 7 months ago
    Good comeback, and The answer on the other posting, if count was that high, wouldn't need the blacklight.
  34. kerry10456 kerry10456, 7 months ago
    Nice to see you're back Hedge/Greenman/ Dave, missed conversing with you.
  35. Hedgewalker Hedgewalker, 7 months ago

  38. Hedgewalker Hedgewalker, 7 months ago
    Hi Phil David !!!!
  39. Hedgewalker Hedgewalker, 7 months ago
    Thanks Mani!!! I'm partial to Hedge also.
  40. walksoftly walksoftly, 7 months ago
    Hedge it is then, extra names just confuse me.
    This conversation reminds me of family gathering at the inlaws, 3 sisters, two married Davids & one married a Dave.
  41. Hedgewalker Hedgewalker, 7 months ago
    I worked at a garden center once and out of about 10 employees 5 of us were Daves,one Jon and the others female.I became Hippy Dave.
  42. walksoftly walksoftly, 7 months ago
    Okay that tops my story, Hippy Dave, you do answer to a lot of names:-)
  43. kerry10456 kerry10456, 7 months ago
    Okay, from now on I'll address each and all as screen name, well maybe not all the time. If we start in and what people call us, I don't think the CW Board would approve of most of mine
  44. Hedgewalker Hedgewalker, 7 months ago
    Split personality...or maybe frayed !
  45. Hedgewalker Hedgewalker, 7 months ago
    Just throw in a couple of %^* and you'll be OK kerry .
  46. kerry10456 kerry10456, 7 months ago
    Do you remember the movie or book Svbil, well she was nothing on the many faces of Kerry LOL
  47. kerry10456 kerry10456, 7 months ago
    That's what they tell be at the home....
  48. AmberRose AmberRose, 7 months ago
    You guys are so funny. I actually have a chart with real names/emails and some addresses...and I still get confused! I also prefer our CW names, seems more super hero like.
  49. Hedgewalker Hedgewalker, 7 months ago
    Referred to as a super hero (well like) and gained a stalker all in one night ...Thanks Amber !
  50. kerry10456 kerry10456, 7 months ago
    That's a great prospective AmberRose, like that notion, thanks for sharing that inside
  51. kerry10456 kerry10456, 7 months ago
    "insight", can't type either, better quit for the night. Good night all and wish you and yours a wonderful evening and a great week ahead.
  52. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 7 months ago
    Would a 100 LED be better for the glow ?
  53. Hedgewalker Hedgewalker, 7 months ago
    LEDs don't show white uranium glass or custard glass well at all.That is the only downfall to the LED blacklights.They do very well on green and yellow uranium glass.
  54. walksoftly walksoftly, 7 months ago
    Didn't know that, my wife may be passing up some of the glow in her searches.
  55. Hedgewalker Hedgewalker, 7 months ago
    Pic four shows this piece and a yellow satin glass piece using LED blacklight.
  56. walksoftly walksoftly, 7 months ago
    So a handheld fluorescent may be the better choice to go hunting with then.
    Thanks for the learn something new today, Hedge.
  57. Hedgewalker Hedgewalker, 7 months ago
    I choose the LED for hunting because it does well in cases.And once you've trained your eye to the reaction of custard glass to LED you can still spot it.I try not to draw attention to pieces being uranium glass,once the shop learns about it the prices rise and it is hard to get a deal.
  58. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 7 months ago
    Your comment #3 is a LED, so its no good ??
  59. walksoftly walksoftly, 7 months ago
    People get very curious when you go around shining a flashlight. My wife was crouched down scanning the bottom shelves in a thrift shop one day when she realized a little girl was crouched down beside her trying to see what she was doing. lol
  60. Aimathena Aimathena, 7 months ago
    Awww how cute
  61. Roycroftbooksfromme1 Roycroftbooksfromme1, 7 months ago
