    Nice, I totally forgot you can pop the primer,, silly Canadian...
    Light bulb goes off as the implications of a perfect hole in the center of the brass, and how I can use that feature in the future, starts to smolder....

    Thanks man.

    The tan and black solid colour stuff might be handy for some real retro castings as well..

    Just waiting on the knots to finish those brushes Mike!

    No worries Mike, the cassull is my brothers...he's a bit off too.[emoji38]

    They look awesome though, and will always keep me remembering those days in the field with me pops.

    Pic of pops Bambi blaster.

    He taught my brother, sister, and I how to handle handguns by the age of 10.
    The best thing I remember him saying was, Smith & Wesson makes all men equal, but only if you know how to use it properly, and he made sure we did.

    Shooting 50yrds became mere child's play before we ever got to hunt with them. My best shot was (swear on pops grave) 240 yrds on a groundhog with my Ruger GP 100, 357 mag W/ 6" bull barrel.

    What a mess those winchester 245/grn. Silver tips would make out of those whistle pigs. [emoji23]

    Thanks guys. Next ones going to be for me to keep actually I think.
    Roy sent me a different material to try to turn for the explosive effect and Shaun sent me a swap knot so I still have one to work with.

    Next vacuum pot project might be something like a shave bowl. Have that beauty hunk of burl Shaun sent me and honestly, been afraid to cut into it to start making stuff, hehe.
    Wonder if it needs to be stabilized as a matter of course?
    Does all burled lumber need to be soaked or just the super punky pieces?
    Thanks for any input from burl masters out there.

    In order for me to pass judgement on that burl I think I need to check the rest of it that is still in the shed. I'm having a bit of a time remembering which piece I sent you. Maple or birch or something like that? I think it would never hurt to stabilize it before turning something. Pics? Size? Give me some clues and I will check what it was. I have a bunch of side pieces from different burls in the crawl spac under the kitchen should you run short of bits.

    Canada post reports that the knot should be in your possession as of this afternoon.

    I'd say 4" thick 9.5"x36" slab. Awesome pattering.

    Thinking maybe rough turn before stabilizer? Not sure
    ..
    And yes, your knot safely arrived, with a couple more sizes of taper drill bits I wanted for pipe making, extra long.

    Some part of that will be fine but there are other sections the will need stabilized for turning. I think you are likely going to see the best result from roughing it out a bit and then stabilizing the pieces. It would be a big vacuum chamber that you could run the whole piece in. I cut thin pieces off the piece of that that I used and made an ern box. It was laminated to yellow cedar for stability.

    Ended up slightly offset, but not enough to warrant redoing in its entirety as it is really just a palm rest when shifting.

    Should go WAY faster now, hehehe.
