Without a digital camera, I'm relying on film and a scanner for pictures so please bear with me. This is the beginning of a new English Wheel and Planishing Hammer combo unit. The main frame is filled with oil-dampened sand so there's no "bell ringing" to it. Taping the frame with a hammer sounds like you're hitting lead. I started this project at the beginning of Summer but just now got a chance to get back on it.

Since this photo was taken, I've built the cradle assembly, lift parts and added casters. (It was getting too heavy to push around.) I'll be adding more pics soon.

Ken,

Your scanner works just fine -- but you need to get a digital camera so you can keep us more up-to-date (smile). We will want to see more of your work for sure.

Ken,

I just now recognized your name... hey good to hear from you -- welcome back!

Guys, Ken is a fellow Texan from Lytle, Texas about 25 miles Southwest of San Antonio on I-35. He's one of the lucky ones with about 20 acres of land. He does antique and classic car restoration, custom painting, sheet metal fabrication, metal casting and machining.

So Ken -- hows the garden this year?

Thanks Terry but a new DC means a new PC. This old WinDont 95 machine can't handle it. Here's a car I just finish for a customer. It's a 31 Ford Tudor. I made a new hood top section, changed the body from a twisted bannana shape to fit tight on the frame. I also made a steel top (original was wood bow & canvas) and repaired sections in the rear fenders. Not to mention the usual dented body panels.

The garden was GREAT this year. Plenty of early rain. The fall garden is a little ify though. Just recently been getting rain again. I just started posting here even though I've been around in the background. (Somebody has to work... LOL) Don't know if I like that "newbie" label though. Makes me sound like a freshman. One of these days, I'll have to setup an album and show you guys I'm not a newbie. LOL

Yeah -- seriously -- I've never like that about this software. It of course, is supposed to show that a member is a "newbie" to posting on the forum, which doesn't take into consideration the years that some of us have spent posting on Yahoo. I don't even remember what comes in between Newbie and Elite. Jim Bailie is "Administrator", which is pulled in from information other than the number of posts.

I thought we had it all turned off at one time -- I think it is a worthless feature. Our webmaster Arden, is getting more familiar with the software that I am -- maybe he can find the swith to turn it off.

Ken, I use an old Sony Mavica that has floppies as the storage media. I got is just to avoid the new PC problem. It also comes in handy for shooting pics for a customer. Everyone with an older PC has afloppy drive.

If you look on ebay you can probably pick one up cheap. The technology is 4-5 years old. The camrea though is a real workhorse.

Even the cheapest POS will take pics good enough for the Net.
