1. Due to the amount of SPAM from foreign countries lately, we have made the decision to manually approve all new members. While we regret that this must be done and the added time that it will take for new members to be approved, it is necessary at this time. We hope to have legitimate new members approved in a timely manner, no longer than a couple of hours. If the Administrators are online at the time, it can be as soon as a couple of minutes. Thank you for your patience.

    Where's the mob at? !!!


    Took my time with this one, got that perfect fit. 30" handle, beats me on the head weight, most likely 3 1/2lbs or so. I gave it a short vinegar bath to get the rust off. I left the pitting patina. I like character. Perfect alignment.

    80 grit. Keeps the grip purchase nice. Any higher and I think it gets too slippery in the hands.

    My collection isn't as big as people might think lol. I have given a few away to friends, sold off the double bits last year so I could buy my camera. Everything I am doing now is staying in the collection though. I want to build it up. I had to buy a wood crate to start storing them in.
