  • Hanks new home

    sounds like my brother-in-law had a mule of a Christmas...

    after a long night of celebrating Christmas Eve with the family I was awakened early this morning with a phone call from Montana thanking me for my gift....they just love Hank....

    my sister-in-law gave him the would of thought we had this planned...

    my brother in law got a mule earlier this year for his 50th birthday.
    He's also a retired special forces guy and when he left the Army they rehabilitated him as a farrier (a guy who puts shoes on horses)...

    that phone call this morning was worth every minute I put into Hank...
    and now the rest of the family wants to know when are they going to get their pieces...

          Hank is such a wonderful piece of art. I have a cousin that is a mule skinner in Idaho. He would sure like something like that. I don't think I could ever make one like that, but it does give me something to work for.

              Trout, I may have said it before but as one who does intarsia to one who does art, Very great job on Hank.

              When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

                Hi ibber - LOL!

                I took the keyboard back to the store a while back and they hadn't got a replacement in stock. Since I like the look o it I think I am going to play attack it later this evening and try to sort out the problem.

                I think it might be a letter that one would need to use the left index finger. Perhaps you need a heavier hammer.

                Hi Rolf - the unit I bought will also do Tig welding once you buy the optional accessories - torch, nozzles etc: - plus it will do conventional stick welding too. I doubt I'll be heading down the TIG route anytime soon, at least not for the projects I have in mind at the moment.

                I did a...

                Jim I bought a mig welder the last time I did a frame off restoration on my TVR. I had a few frame cracks. I bought one that used shielding gas. I never really mastered the power vs feed vs moving the torch. Using it only a couple of times a year did not help.
                My dream was to buy a TIG so that...
