I am just getting back into wooden toys and have great respect for most of the Jocks work. Because of a stroke a year ago last Aug. I had to give up working outside my home , and was worried about trying to get back into making toys again because I lost the sight in my right eye and part of the left eye. So I come with hat in hand and ask for feed back.

Nice job and would love to see more, and like you my health is not good but my modeling helps keep the mind active, and look forward to every chance I get to play in my shed.

Nice rig there Budster...

Sorry to hear about your mishap. Hate to see (no pun intended) what you’d do with 20/20!.

I’m no medical expert but I would like to offer my brown eye, with cap in hand, as acknowledgement….

Bet I had the censors going there for a while….

PS. Sorry Budster, I mean no disrespect, but that prop has been sitting on my office shelf for over 20 years just waiting for such opportunities.

PPS. Again less offence than above… A quick drill pass down the centre of the exhaust gives opportunity to let out a lot of hot air.
I have made the same “mistake” and have regretted it during too many look backs over those early models of mine…

Your work is awesome, I only have vision in one eye myself.

I would have loved to have those toys you made when I was a kid, hell I’m 43 and would play with them now :)

Excellent job. As Rick and Dick said, you can put you hat back on, buddy.

Sorry you’ve lost some sight but clearly haven’t lost the vision.
I’ve loaded drill stem in Houston on trucks that looked much like yours.
Well done.
