Default lots of pics

first of all the camera is a pita to work so i only do this once in a while. here are a few pics of what i have been up too.


first wear safety gear when melting lead That could have been real bad real fast.


Next is a bowl of (Striper fruit)

last is a big pencil I made from a piece of cedar that I got at the fence co. I gave it to them to hang on the wall.

more to come once I get more room on the camera

i like the striper fruit salad!!!..my favorite though is your lead melting gear..it looks like you had an anthrax threat at the house....in all seriousness..wtg on the precautions. that godzilla sized pencil is pretty cool...the fence guys outta ket a kick out of that one.

The Striper salad looks good enough for them to eat. The pencil is cool, and I'm sure you will end up with another truck load of cut offs after you give it to the guys at the fence company. If big plugs catch big fish, you might want to try a few casts.

I've never had lead do that and I've poured a mess of it. I have seen it splatter if water gets onto it while it's hot.

there was water in the ladle because I cooled it in the snow. I also got some on my jacket, and gloves. My melting method at this time is very primitave.
