  1. Dizzy, Jacky's in Berlin (Thank God) & we aren't speaking. Having a bit of trouble with the translation. This is like a quartermaster for parts ?
  2. Thanks Ron. I can do that to the small blade & just ck'd to make sure there is enough flex for that to work. Thought Barlow was supposed to be a real good make. I was a gift, so I'll play around wit...
  3. I live in the tropics, but always luved old wood & coal burners. Why ? I have no idea !
  4. Just noticed that it's you again PCC . Hey, if you got e'm, smoke e'm ! LOL ! I was sole distributor for rolling papers in Jamaica for about 4 yrs. in the 70's. Talk about a supply & demand market !! ...
  5. While I was living in Jamaica, I noticed that everybody would roll (whatever), lick the glued edge & finish the roll. (OK, me too !). I showed people how neater & easier it was to roll them all the w...
  6. Thanks Dizzy. That's pretty much what I kept running into. What do you mean by "trade badge" ?
  7. Now I'm really curious PCC. What is the Scandinavian eyelid fold ? How did Poe get involved here ? You think this guy looks like Poe ? How could I not have seen it ! This is Jessie James & Mary Todd...
  8. Sounds good to me !
  9. Thanks Mon ! For that favour, I won't mention "miss spelling" in #7 ! LOL !! Think I chipped a tooth earlier !
  10. Sorry, but his eyes remind me of Gomez from the Addams Family. LOL !
  11. UGH ! Teeth gritted.
  12. Oh right ! Not threaded. Toilet paper holder ? LOL !!
  13. Looks like they spent too many long winters !
  14. I'm waiting to know how this works too. Wire isn't going to hold any fuel.
  15. Is it heavy ? Wouldn't be a sap or billy club with no weight. Also, why make it in 2 pieces ? Maybe a hollow space for lead ?
  16. Is it heavy ?
  17. A vise that you can clamp on a counter, table etc.. I have 1 & it comes in handy for small things when I don't want to go work in the shop.
  18. GOOD question !
  19. And this guy does religious paintings too ?
  20. I suspected it was one of those plastic blunderbuss pistols.
  21. Pistol on the side is a nice touch but assume it was just for the pix.
  22. BB2 was here. Really nice !
  23. Incredible that this is kicking around on the lft. coast when Standard Oil was just founded on the right coast in 1870. Surely theses weren't made by Standard in the 1st couple of yrs.! This is probab...
  24. A straight shift now or automatic ? Nice job. Did you make the ladders or did they come with the decals ? LOL ! The curve to your windscreen frame looks better & a better fit than the original.
  25. You don't play around with word, do you ? Send it to Pops (Collect) LOL !!
  26. That's OK S.B.. Propaganda is BS is part of war (& peace). The U.S. & Israel, especially, are true masters of the art ! In the '50's, the U.S. complained to the UK about their jamming RFE & the The V...
  27. Munich wasn't on the front during WWI, unless you consider 3 bombs dropped by the French. (Not by dirigibles)
  28. A short barreled gun made to lob shells at a high angle. I'm not familiar with this patch.
  29. The image is of an old muzzle loading howitzer.
  30. Scott, your examples exemplify my point. They show honest lead greying.
  31. You asked the forbidden on CW !
  32. Actually, my grandmother said that Rube Burrow was a cousin of her's. Look him up. He was pretty daring ! Think Jesse stole his limelight ! Maybe I took after him ?!
  33. I just read up on P.T. & he was quite a man. Quite an optimist ! He just didn't quite !!
  34. Sorry Scott, but it lacks the non dug colour that it should have attained just in the air, unless vacuum sealed.
  35. This would have to be made for something that lays on it's side or has the opening on the bottom, judging by the angle of the spout.
  36. That's my ancestor train robber, Rube Burrow & Frank James ! I would know them anywhere !!
  37. We wish you could too Scott, LOL ! The lead back is just too fresh. I don't know of any way to give lead a convincing aging except with age. If there were, I'm sure it would over-react with the brass...
  38. By the way, by "the occupation", I meant by the Allies.
  39. Chris, that passed thru my mind, but didn't register till you mentioned it. Can't tell by the pic if it was a pin previously & repaired or just converted. Good point you made.
  40. OK, OK Recordman ! You used a "?" though. Just to show no bias, I think BB2 should get all the stamps. LOL !!
  41. So you're weird too ! LOL ! Hey, it's Sat. nite !!
  42. Hey Doddle, we aren't all nuts ! LOL ! We actually have a very good spread of knowledge here. Stick around. If it helps you sleep better, not many are like me. You just drew the short straw ! LOL !
  43. I think it's great. So, the fiberglass mold was made over an orig. body. That's interesting. So we know there's more than one.
  44. Pour quoi? Being in the aircraft business, I'm accustomed to doing oil samples, but this kit would mean basically nothing to me without a sample to compare.
  45. I knew that I should have opened a farm back in the 70's raising Naughs for their hydes & Mos for their hair ! Missed out on that one ! LOL !! Oh, welcome to CyberAsylum/CW !
  46. Bon chance !
  47. So, to us ignorant, could we get an explanation ? These are eng. oil samples ? Pour quoi ?
  48. Credit where credit is due. As Packrat's agent, I should get 10% of the stamps. LOL!
  49. That's more like it Dizzy. Didn't think that 1st was anywhere near correct. I've lived around cane fields for well over 40 yrs. now & bought many cane knives, so know the patterns. I would still like...
  50. Well, my dumb is really founded !
