Dang Al, some of your posted pics can cause nightmares! Nice job on the Butcher, however. That’ll get you a little leeway. Oh and the Porsche doesn’t say gay as much as “chiropractor having a mid-life crisis”. That’ll probably be the only thing that would stop you from buying it. Seriously, it’s a Porsche, if you want one, get it. What real guy hasn’t wanted a Porsche at some time.

Smitty, I’m in on the calendar. I made one through a couple years ago and the process was really easy. Your shop pics are a great combination of real shop work and “I wish I could do that” inspirational. You have a good eye for photo composition.

Back on topic. I got a little shop time in today and finished up a Sargent 418 that was started quite a while back

Before. Check out the wonderful square head bolt (with nut on the back of the frog) that was holding the lever cap.

After. The body was stripped, sandblasted and repainted with Rustoleum Hammered Black—everything else got an Evaporust bath before being wire brushed. Knob and tote were sanded to bare wood and finished with BLO.

Also been working on sharpening. Not quite up to Dan’s standards, but getting there.
