    The devil whispered in my ear, you cant withstand the storm and i smiled and whispered "I AM THE STORM"
  1. Well off the top of my head mri,catscan, prolonged eeg, blood, prodding and pokeing etc
  2. Well i cant do anything as seizures are still kickin my but. Saw nuero yesterday and have to run a bunch of tests. 7 days admit to be exact...ughhh. so im starting to reorganize my carage so i can get all my pegboard up and organize my tools
  3. We should just ask ahhhnallld. He knows everything.
  4. I believe this is a variation of a leather embossing iron. Primarily used for saddle makers
  5. Now im digging deeper and i feel tis is a custom made (to specs) checkering chisel or saw for gunsmithing and carving. Similar to this....
  6. Ok John have a little delemma here. Cant find anything like that on net. But please allow me to present my hard fact bassed theory. 1: the handle is a timeless wood easy to make and comfortable to use. This has been used in many applications throught time. 2: the said item appears to be multi purpose. Not unlike a 5 in 1 painters tool. 3: the straight edge appears to be for precision cuts and more importantly a hide fat scaper. That odly resembles a safety blade scraper. 4: the hook knife with cutting on draw is a classic skinning knife. Much like is crafted to this very day. I dont know and maybe im reaching here but this is what i interperate from what i can gather as it has attributes to litterally 100s of tools. I just hit what i believed was the best 4 bullet points for a valid hypothisis Ouch.... my brain hurts now
  7. I think i may have figured this out. To small for boat calking. I think this appears to be a 18th or 19th century skinning knife to effectively clean and butcher a carcass as well as maintain hides for use, trade or sale
  8. I see that being a tool for old hand buit boats. To press in and remove the tar laden cord between the boards maiting surfaces
  9. I'm bbbaaaccckkk!!!

    Hey Lew! Good to be back. And yes it's heartbreaking. But the spirits are high in the keys. Just 50 yards down that street is the NOAA official Irma landfall location. That's actually the 3rd story. The 2nd disappeared and their rather large boat was lifted above electrical poles and dropped in a back yard 1/2 block away. I felt after that I needed to volunteer more so I went and was accepted as a divemaster at the FL Aquarium doing guest interaction through a comms mask and also taking guests smoking and diving in the shark tank. Found out they go to keys alot for reef conservation so I'm sure it won't be long before i go back and start cleaning the junk off the reef. And no worries, it is what is. I'll find a loophole in this battle with my body. I will always place the mission first. I will never accept defeat. I will never quit. I will never leave a fallen comrade. Even if that comrade is myself. And yea was solo excited about the free wood. Still trying to figure out what to use the A.M. for....
  10. Hello ladies and gentlemen, Sorry I haven't been active. My injuries are getting worse and worse by the say. I havent been able to get in the shop due to this. I got to go to the keys with WWP. We did Irma clean up. So sad to see everyones lives on the curb. I have just now after a month starting to be able to get around again. I havent done any work because my seizures are getting worse and more frequent. I prefer to keep my fingers for the time being! HAHAHA. Hoping to make some man glitter again sometime soon. I scored about 40 board fett of African mahogany on a curb as well as a crap ton of 12×10×1 pine planks on curb as well. I' am also proud to say I'm a plank owner and SGT. At Arms for our newly formed non-profit. It's ALOT of work, but so worth it! Happy Veterans Day!!!
  11. I think i figures this one out. Use to place and hold bend in a steamed slat of wood
  12. Rifle stocks

    Ok ladies and gents. Just have to see if i canoe her right and get mesurments for turn knob correct as I just tossed together to see if she would work. I cut the head off an old broken c-clamp and cut down the threaded bar stock an took an old broken squeeze clamp cut to length and drilled for a friction fit. I then instead head into wood disk to create the windage mech for cheek wield..... I need to get my butt into engineering school
  13. Rifle stocks

    Fyi dont mind the mess in the background. Working on cleaning up patio and yard... jeeze lookin at it now it looks like I live in a pig stye...
  14. Rifle stocks

    Yes I do actually i was a soldier not a marine hahahaha. Besides not so much my feet i have to worry about its my hands.
  15. Rifle stocks

    Is it just me or does anyone else realize they need more tools when doing a new project? Or starting a new project as an excuse to buy some more? Hahahaha
