  1. I carry everywhere I go but also I have to think am I doing the right thing. I will give an example I am shopping at a store and I hear a gun shot, I pull my gun and proceed to where I think the shot came from. In the meantime an officer of the law enters the store and proceeds to where the shooting is taking place. I have my gun drawn and am looking for the shooter and the police man sees me and shoots me. End of story. How would the officer know who I was. I guess if he got the shooter also and prevented more people dying my life would be worth it. The officer was doing his job. Preston
  2. I have not had any luck on finding out for sure. I have sent out pic and have had 2 replies not helping. Preston
  3. I think further and the more I do it looks like a wax modeling tool or for a matter of fact they could be used on anything that can be sculptured including mixtures. Preston

  5. World's simplest project

    Table saw is a hero. I have even used mine to cut a 45 Degree angle on my floor matt edges to keep from tripping. Preston
  6. They are used in molding to create certain features. You only show two but a complete set is a whole herd. A lot of them are hand made for doing a particular mark or design. Preston

  12. Vagaries of age

    Well I finally graduated, now I can't drive unless someone is with me. I went to a meeting a while back and it was dark and I got lost, I mean really lost. I ended up in the boondocks and could see the city lights so that was the way I went. When I got to the city lights I didn't know where I was. I drove for about 3 hours and noticed something that was familiar and turned in and guess what I was home. My wife asked how the meeting was and I told her the truth. Now I didn't tell her this had happened before. I'll make a post on here and maybe in a few days I'll be searching on here and come across a post and think that is interesting so I'll go read the post. I'll start reading the post and finally figure out I wrote the post. I want to apologize for making posts that don't make sense or are confusing. I try but it doesn't work out sometimes. I like to think I'm at home when I on this website. Preston

  14. Charles Nichols Says, "HI"

    I didn't mean for anyone to think that Craft supplies is pricy. Just the Trend Air Shield is a little expensive. I am happy with their pricing. Preston
  15. Charles Nichols Says, "HI"

    It is with Craft supply in Provo Utah. It is a face shield and I know several people that use them and are very satisfied. It is a trend Pro Air Shield #100560001. I have no affiliation with Craft Supply other than being a satisfied customer. They are pricy, and my excuse to my wife is I'm worth it. Preston https://www.woodturnerscatalog.com/
  16. Charles Nichols Says, "HI"

    Charles: I hope you are feeling better, I have some problems with COPD, asthma, etc. When I started to do something about the dust it was to late, I had already done the damage. I have a hanging unit with remote and I use several box floor fans and attach a 20 X 20 furnace filter to the fan and run on slow and that picks up a lot of dust and with the overhead unit I still don't feel secure. I have been looking at the Trend Pro Shield face masks with a built in fan and I know of people that are in worst shape than I'm in and they are going strong with their turning. The only problem is they are expensive. I don't know if I can drop a name where you can buy. If there is no Problem I will? I wish you luck . Preston
  17. free newspaper

    When you have seen it all something will tell you haven't. My wife and I went to the grocery store and I sat on the bench up front waiting for her. They have a newspaper stand there. Throw a paper in your cart and read it when you get home. this guy gets a paper and goes though it while looking around like he was doing something wrong, finally he takes the paper and goes beyond the check stands and reads the paper. I moved to a different spot and happen to notice the same man leaning up against something reading the paper. I went back to my original spot and after about 40 minutes he returns the paper to the stand. Preston
  18. A moving tribute

    Gene I just don't know what to say, that is a great one! If I may I will pass that on and my eyes are not dry. Preston

  20. Eating in the Fifties

    When I sat down at the table we didn't talk unless it was to say pass all the leftovers, and my two brothers and I gave them a good home. Preston
  21. printer ink cartridge

    Someone posted where I could buy ink on line and I lost the link. I tried search and could not find anything. I know I know I was at the front of the class when I passed my stupid test. Oh yea I got a perfect score. Seems like 1 2 3 or A B C may have been in the ink makers name? Can anyone remember? Preston
