All I can say is WOW! (No, m-u-s-t.. .com ment.. more). That rig is IMPRESSIVE. Eli Whitney would have been proud. Could it have been one half the lost prototype of the double barreled cannon in front of Athens Town Hall? You know, the one they keep "pointed north in case the Yankees* come back." (It might help to explain all those copper bits.) If the South had one or two more like you, Wrangler, the difference would have been in the balance (tumbler reference.) You might think about getting a patent lawyer. Next time maybe a little lighter with the hammer--the mug is great! My fav pic is the one with the 4 kits. Irresistible! MUCH HOLIDAY LOVE TO MADISON COUNTY and Everyone Here at Antique Bottles!!

*- Especially you Michiganders;) :) . (Check out the Hist. Channel's "Civil War Gold" if clueless.)

Of course I will share results and I’m a gonna need lots of advice along the way cuz this is uncharted turf! At this point I have a once clear G. O. Blake’s bottle that was clear before, looking kind of smoke color, almost amethyst. I haven’t worked with copper before. I have used The oxcides, though, without that issue.

Ok, once I made that hillbilly barrel, I ran everything within that size but that was not good enough so I went full on ozark mt hillbilly and found a container that I cut the top off of, that fit over that (because I didn’t want to cut a hole in the top that came with the whole Tumbler as it was still in original condition Dash so the blue part that you see is what I put over the thing and cut a hole in for the bottle neck to extend further than the machine. I didn’t know if it would work but it was just a spare container… As it turned out it did work and stuff didn’t just spill all over the place out of it. (necessity being the mother of invention!) so that can come off like it did earlier today to check the impossment and everything because I haven’t used copper before! Is that smoke tinge normal and something that will leave once I use the cerium oxide? Or do I need to tumble it more with the aluminum oxide? I think I will wait for the big machine with those giant canisters which are so beautiful and un-hillbilly-esk!?

Looks like you got alot of help! I got my little helper too. I would be lost without him. Here is Rodgers with his stuffed animal friend. Doing Cha-Cha on his head, what a good friend. He also loves to lay on my notebooks.

I love your cat! You can tell he’s just a good cat. He reminds me of the last of our “hillbilly” cats that we lost a couple months ago. ( “hillbilly I.e. a regular domestic cat - Gracie was even more hillbilly than that, being a straight up rescue polydactyl domestic). She was16?! Now I live with 14 Savannahs•but 1 is from the only proven line of bobcat/domestic crosses in the world, which isn’t supposed to happen- different number of chromosomes. But we have been working with U c Davis & their genetics top notch genetics team doing research & all the testing on that There’s not a domestic here,anymore…. Which kind of sucks when I think about it! Give your guy an extra head scratch or me? Kira would eat that toy in 2 minutes, easy, like she ate her new cat tree…. She just does what she wants…

Will do! He gets a treat too. Must be wonderful being part of such a large Clowder! Me and Rodgers being alone is best. He is very territorial for some reason. He doesn't like any animals on his street. That includes other cats, dogs (no matter how big), squirrels, birds...even some people. If he gets any worse I may have to keep him inside. It's very tough being the Alpha.
