  20. You could do a hot needle test on it, if it smells like burnt hair then you will at least know if it is horn. To me it doesn't look like horn, but I could be wrong!!

  33. Eye4 you can have the tiara, it's all yours, but we want pictures!
  34. Pardon me eye4, what did you say? :-) Was it something about an eye exam??
  35. I should re phase that, each hole lets in different amounts of the image as they pass before the lens.

  38. Well we at least steered it a different direction!
  39. Yes, I'm well aware my guess hinges or rather is fastened by the two bolt theory! Like a said previously I'm going out on a limb. I'm trying to get this away from the tunnel vision that it was on. P...
  40. @B'buss, I'm going out on a limb as AmourLaCour never returned to to answer my question in comment #45 as to whether there is a bolt broke off in the other end of that thing!
  41. Time to stir up some activity on this post! It seems as though AmourLaCour has left the building & didn't answer my last question. If you'll note the patina is rubbed off of the surface, I believe t...
  42. Put the hat on .... & take a bow.
