  1. LOL.. Well done Bob....Scammers think we're all stupid and easy targets. Since putting my web site up last Sept. I have had the "Worms beneath the Barrel" try the same thing.
  2. Has anyone used "Awesome"? Ya get it at Family Dollar. My 78 Bronco has white lettering .... I just spray and hit it with a soft scrub brush and is bright as new.
  3. Good question. My shop is a home based business, it's right beside the house if you are using Google Earth. This keeps overhead to a bare minimum thus not passing costs on to the customer. I build the patterns but leave casting to the foundries who have the manpower and resources to expedite the products and leaves me with the time to build more tooling. I've been a Pattern maker for 42 yrs, and the trade is a dying art, but there is still room for the small runs and one offs. Thanks for the question Larry, I hope this helps you and everyone else.

  5. I read one the other day waiting in line to top my tank, it said "My driving scares me too"! Ummm, I shifted into reverse and backed off 10. Guess it was a RED FLAG warning...and appreciated.

    Bronze castings

    Hi Ken, Don't cut just yet. First take some measurements of the casting and jot them down, they are actual to the part and period. Second, if you can, make a "jig" from wood and bondo and secure the casting (wax it first) to the wet bondo and wood. This will give you a fixture to epoxy the casting back together filling "just" the saw lines. Castings are like a solid print, exterior first and interior second. You are going from iron to bronze so the shrink will be different and measurements will be critical. I did a "Thomasnet" search and didn't find any bronze foundries in your area. Yo
