This one got me...

The latest MicroMark catalog came in the mail a few days ago. As always, I earmarked many of the pages and then realized I would spend several hundred dollars if I bought all the cool stuff they advertise, but this one got me. So today I got out the credit card and actually ordered one of these do-hickeys. Had to have one. Don't tell my wife.

PS: I am not a dealer for them, not even sure they have a dealer program. Just thought this was a cool tool to have.

That does look cool.

If only I still had a work area. My old one was lost to living room expansion (we didn't measure twice before we bought...)

I don't know, it's pretty comfortable...

At least the layout is intact.

I think we can make it all work again, just have to do some more rearranging that neither one of us has been interested in doing.

I use a trained pet live lobster . The hard part was not getting Grippy to hold the objects , but was getting him to close his eyes so I can spray paint .

Goggles. Easily the most humane way to get your lobsters to hold your models while you paint.

There are six of you Chuck, so I can't see any reason why you would need one of those!  :o ;D
