    johnoder,

    Do you know much about the fab process Pat Black followed. It's really nice and beautiful when all is said and done. What left me wondering though was the shiny silver appearance. ...

    Haha, I don't normally keep lipstick in my purse but I'm curious if any others admit that they do. OTOH, it's an opportunity to go hit up on the receptionist. No, not the 73 year old. The other...

    I presume Rich was talking about common use of a surface plate and accessories. That is, do you pay attention to clean the plate before setting stuff on it? And the hand is very sensitive in...

    I guess if it's yours you can call it whatever you want. One good name might be Mikey.

    Q: So, what do you call a dog with no legs?

    A: It don't matter what you call him, he ain't gonna come.

    If it's just the handle it's probably more expeditious to repair than to find an original replacement. OR, it might be a generic square or hex hole where another handle might serve.

    For a man cave decoration, papering the walls with the $1,595 would probably be more impressive. Besides, there's probably a guy across town with a man cave decoration that's from a FOUR-BLADE...
