Ok, here is a tip about duck tape. If you really want it to stick then put some heat to it after applying it. Not to much heat. While rafting the Rogue River one summer we made a tent out of the rafts and some plastic. After we tapped the plastic to the rafts one of the guys we were with got a hot rock out of the fire and ironed the tape with it. It was a real chore getting it off the next day. It works pretty good.

Hay Denny, I just put these on my little friend. I cut some Maury Mt. agate into some blanks for grips on my 9mm. I have them preformed, will see how it goes. I'm really using my Dremal after having it for years. Anyway........

Don't you wish you had some.

LAPIDARY ARTS / The days cuttin

Well, I can't let Denny get away with all the cuttin and postin pictures of his days work. So, here is some that I've been donin lately.

This is some Candy Rhyolite from N.M. that I picked up on line.

This is a Mexican Coconut that I got a few years back.

Everybody should know what this is. It's some that I got from Tony. I wish everything took as good and as easy a polish.

This is a Thunderegg I got from an estate sale I picked up a few years ago. It's really got a lot going on in it.

That's all folks.
