Is it “scrap” or “scrape?” Either way – the rule of the shop with scrap is this and always this: You will have scrap, you will never scrape the bottom of the scrap bin and you will always wonder how the bin got so full so fast. Second realit...
Just a short entry tonight – I had a monster show this weekend so I’m going to be making lots of dust between now and Thanksgiving to restock. I plan to take lots of pictures and post short blog entries while I take breaks in working. ...
