    Nice site! I like all the little models you make, some very nice looking ones in there. I don't want this to sound offensive, but do those things actually move enough to make them worth producing or was it something you just like making a few sel here and there? Reason i ask is because i Like making stuf like that, but have never put them on display for the "publi eye" to see if people would really buy them up. I mean i've seen them in peoples offices here and there, but when i ask they mostly say they were gifts or picked up at a store where it was on the counter for sale next to ciggarette lighters and such.

    I am also glad to see another bully breed lover out there. I've got an 8 year old pit and they just banned them in my city, now i have to muzzle him and carry a 100,000.00 insurance policy on him at all time (and must have proof of said insurance anytime i'm walking him )

          Thanks guys

          Glen, yeah, I'm getting busier and busier. The tractor and the v-rod were both commissioned, so they were sold before I made them.

            Did you guys know that the gift for a 10th anniversary is aluminum? I sold two vases last week, to two different people, who both were stoked to find a good anniversary gift made from aluminum! So now I need to make more....and I haven't done much al lately. But I had to make a drop box, so I used some left stuff I had to make it. Good practice...I need more! I'm going on the Hot Rod Power Tour, and I'm hoping to build up a mailing list. I'm giving some stuff away through a drawing, people just have to show up and put their name and email on a form and drop it in the box I made. Here is what I'm doing for the pt: http://www.flickr.com/photos/browndo...7619171487252/

            Here is the box. The letters are a little off, but I didn't feel like doing it again The bottom is bolted on, there is a 1/4" thick tab welded into each corner that is drilled and tapped.

                  I don't know how many of you guys are into cars, but my buddy and I are going on the Hot Rod Power Tour this week, and I'm posting pics every night on my website. There are some really astounding vehicles on this thing!

                      A friend that does photography came over to mess around with some welding shots yesterday. Here's a quick look at one of the pics, they turned out really cool!

                          I've sand blasted a lot of stuff too, I like both looks. Right now I don't have easy access to a sandblaster, so I like the non blasted look better lol

                            FWIW; i picked up a cheap H blaster for like $70 that with a few small mod's works OK. its no top notch blaster but it dose get the job done.
                            add to that TSC has aggregate for $6 on sale at the moment.

                              I thought about that, but I'd like to get a decent sized stand alone American made cabinet. I need to find room for it though! I'm not desperate for one at the moment, but I'll need one here eventually.

                                thats cool, just though i would pass along the info encase you were wondering if they worked or not.
                                for low volume they are a doable option.
