  1. You've lead an interesting life Unc, and it's not even half over! Saginaw
  2. That's it, rub it in. You lucky guy. Saginaw
  3. Hi Mike. Did you find any info? You've got me wanting to go. Saginaw
  4. Thanks Ruben! Looking forward to your future posts. Thanks Adam and Skip for pinning it.
  5. Thanks Skip. It's amazing how, using 72 cams, this watchmaker was able to get this mechanism to draw pictures and write poems, in script writing no less! Translating all those movements into those cams must have taken years. Saginaw
  6. Skip's topic, "Amazing Workmanship!", blew me away. So, when I saw this video, I knew it belonged next to his. Enjoy! http://www.cnn.com/video/data/2.0/video/world/2014/03/06/spc-art-of-movement-automata-clockwork-a.cnn.html Saginaw
  7. Like you Mike, I just used what I had in my tackle box with mixed results. Back east, my love was Bass fishing, and was able to almost from my back porch, so I did often. Not so, here in NM, now I fish for meteorites. Still haven't figured out what they're biting on. You know, Sportsmans Warehouse puts out a free seasonal newsletter that is really helpful; like a school lunch menu for trout. It will tell you what the trout are biting on almost by the day and where. Very helpful. It's a starting point, after that ask the other anglers you see. Best of luck! Saginaw
  8. Hi Rimmy. Mr. Hillbillie's suggestion is a great one; build your own telescope. You are looking for a new hobby, so that would be a good way to learn about telescopes. I've never built one of my own, but it's easier than you'd think. I had a friend that built one and he and his family still use it. Optical materials are the costliest parts, but used parts are always available. I like this idea and may build one myself next winter (got meteorites to hunt for between now and then). Saginaw
  9. Hi Rimmy. Below is a description of a similar scope. Read it and decide. Celestron 102mm Wide View Spotting Scope 4" / 102 mm Refractor Telescope 52270 Product Info Celestron 102mm Wide View Spotting Scope's 4" aperture provides bright, breath-taking views of both ground and celestial objects. If you're looking for high magnification of terrestrial viewing, the size of the objective lens is incredibly important, and the 102mm of the Wide View will give high-magnification details of intricate subjects. 102 mm Wide-View Spotting Scope's #52270 fully multicoated optics perform brilliantly in low light conditions, perfect for squeezing more viewing time into early mornings and late evenings. Two 1 1/4" eyepieces are included for 20x and 50x magnification. Also included is a 45 degree erect image diagonal and tripod adapter for mounting to any photographic tripod. Photographers appreciate the 102's fast (500mm f/5) optical system. Celestron 102mm-WideView classical refractor design with achromatic two-element lens made of crown and flint glass is well suited to both visual and photographic applications. Celestron 102mm Wide View Spotting Scopes-52270 are great for bird watching, astronomy and photography as well as nature study. You won't see down into craters with it. The magnification will be about the same as a high mag pair of binoculars.

  10. Thanks Skip. When you really ponder and consider the thinking, planning, and execution to produce something like this, it's humbling. That these amazing items were made by hand, by candlelight, using what are considered today to be 'crude' tools, it makes modern workmanship seem sad by comparison. Saginaw
  11. Hoser John is right. Always give help when you can. You can't expect people to respond the way you might want too, but there will always be those that, in the spirit of camaraderie, will want to help you. Karl organized a trip to GB a while back and Mitchel showed up. I had never been to GB and Karl only once or twice. To ensure a good hunt for us, Mitchel generously shared what he knew with the two of us. We were swamped with information, but Karl and I were grateful for it. Don't give up. Saginaw
  12. Gotta agree with you John. That's what I was reminded of this Christmas. Not from Michigan Jeff. It's a nickname I was given during a good time in my life, and I like hanging on to it. Thanks for the comments fellas. Saginaw
  13. Thanks everyone for the comments. Love the potty training idea. Might use that one down the road. Got friends with little ones that will need a boost soon. The joinery was more than called for, but I thought it would look good, so I went with it. Saginaw
  14. Thanks Frank. She hasn't figured out what to keep in the box yet. Thanks for the comment. Saginaw
