    the cast

    Kinda large!
    Needed to test a couple of things and they turned out okay.
    There are bubbles in the grooves, but the plaster made it all the way through so it's hollow.
    That's about an ounce of silicon bronze...
    Next one I go half size.

    I was cutting some spray foam off of a band board under a crawlspace. I was pushing, pulling, twisting and prying all at the same time. Only thing I can figure is that I wedged the tip in the wood and the edge wedged on a floor joist while twisting? Really don’t know. I do wonder if when it arced a while back if it made it brittle. It snapped right in that spot

    So last time I posted in this thread, I told my supervisor to give me his knife for the pic. This time I got 2 of his knives. The 511 on top is his and the third which I have no idea what number it is. The Eldris is mine and the 711 belongs to another co-worker.

    The "elf door"? I don't really know much about it. Apparently they are hidden in quite a few places nearby.
