  1. I have one although I am not sure it is a Mini-Might ( I can't check right now.) I was given it with a dead battery and no charger but I bought a new charger and battery on eBay. Dremel 756.
  2. In Toronto, where I grew up we also called them clothes pins and the ones without the spring, clothes pegs.
  3. Merci, Gaetan. A nod is as good as a wink to a blind horse.
  4. I recently read where some carvers are now using thin cardboard (cereal Box) charged with compound and backed by a hard surface as a strop.
  5. Victory Stuff What d’ye think, lad; what d’ye think, As the roaring crowds go by? As the banners flare and the brasses blare And the great guns rend the sky? As the women laugh like they’d all gone mad, And the champagne glasses clink: Oh, you’re grippin’ me hand so tightly, lad, I’m a-wonderin’: what d’ye think? D’ye think o’ the boys we used to know, And how they’d have topped the fun? Tom and Charlie, and Jack and Joe Gone now, every one. How they’d have cheered as the joy-bells chime, And they grabbed each girl for a kiss! And now they’re rottin’ in Flanders slime, And they gave their lives for this. Or else d’ye think of the many a time We wished we too was dead, Up to our knees in the freezin’ grime, With the fires of hell overhead; When the youth and the strength of us sapped away, And we cursed in our rage and pain? And yet we haven’t a word to say. . . . We’re glad. We’d do it again. I’m scared that they pity us. Come, old boy, Let’s leave them their flags and their fuss. We’d surely be hatin’ to spoil their joy With the sight of such wrecks as us. Let’s slip away quietly, you and me, And we’ll talk of our chums out there: You with your eyes that’ll never see, Me that’s wheeled in a chair. ~ R.W. Service
  6. Bill Ottinger has a very informative book on this ~ "Napoleonic Plastic Figure Modelling".
  7. I have been trying to fiddle with my notifications and now I don't seem to get any. I am trying to get the red ball to appear beside the globe with no emails. 


    In addition, the piracy thread is no longer visible to me.  I went to the drop down lists of notification and clicked on an old notification from the piracy thread and was told that I did not have access.  I can not see the thrad in its usual place either.  Has it been removed?


    Can you point me in the right direction?



  8. Mechano sets and small rubber bricks that I think were called Minibricks.
  9. My father lived in northern Ontario and had his canoes re-canvased by local Indians (Cree?). I believe that they used the right side up approach while wetting the canvas and putting quite a weight of rocks in the canoe. And maybe re wetting.
  10. In our county there have been 705 cases and 33 deaths. There are released numbers but I a little skeptical. I don't think we have a grip on the cases and perhaps not deaths since symptoms vary.
