    What I like is the all knowing expression on the older gentleman's face as he watches the youngers stretch the skins. If you could hear his eyes they would be saying boys I've done this all my life now its your turn and you better to them right if you expect me to buy them.

    While I've not trapped or skinned muskrat, Frank S's comment hit me. When I saw this a couple days ago, it had me thinking about my various mentors. Fishing with Dad probably first one, second one his boss. We'd spend weekends visiting their estate and Thoroughbred farm, 60 years ago we sat at his desk in trophy room. He pulled out a pocket knife and dissected a red paper 12 gauge shotgun shell. That's when my world of physics, design, and machining began.

    In other news, today is TM51's birthday, wanting 60 ton iron worker or single end punch; well tooled.
    I'll wind up with a cake and not even a picture of either one.

    I was going to wrap them with a nice bow, but out of time.

    Sure looks like it - the place is also an oyster shucking station. But what is the huge barrel on the left? Fresh water storage I would guess. How does it get filled?

    Aw shucks guys [shuffling feet, kicking at one shoe with toe of other] you're too kind. I do appreciate the salutations; I intend having P-L-E-N-T-Y more.

    No problems with good used equipment. The Edwards far too pretty; Kling, Hill-ACME, Buffalo, Mubea, Strippit are all old mechanicals, fast and full attention required!
    I have that very same single end punch in ebay watchlist! Holding company has it listed at their site too.

    That barrel is interesting. Looks like was recently turned over. It seems to be wet by one of the bands, but the water seems to be running the wrong way.

    Also the bands seem to have been moved at somepoint in time, perhaps as the barrel aged.
