Hey Surus, check this out
« on: April 25, 2019, 10:21:37 PM »
So, one of our members stopped by the old sweat shop today and we did a dope, er, I mean castings deal in the parking lot  :lolb: :lolb:. Iíll let yíall guess, but, Iím guessing it wonít be too hard to figger out  8). Thanks to KVOM for aging the castings and the ďback door delivery serviceĒ . Iím starting a small stash in hopes of ďglory daysĒ 8)



Ainít been able to reply much, but, I have been trying to keep up with all the great work going on here. Great job guys (gal)

Nope can't open the box, it will drop the value considerably.  :lolb:

Showing that could be real bad timing Big E :stickpoke:  just as I have been trying to get Surus to forget about the Triples :facepalm: and exchange the castings for the Stuart Twin Oscillator for the Blackgates one. Now he will want me back finishing off the Triple Orphans before I am allowed more castings :toilet_claw:

I'll try to convince him that it is just an empty box you are trying to tease him with  :noidea:

Jo

P.S. The box says "Wedmore Road, Cheddar" which means it dates from before the undersized castings problems Stuarts had ;)

Looks like the contents have been trying to escape through the box, have you opened it up to make sure you have not been sold a pile of iron oxide :'(

Thanks for looking folks. Yeah, I peeped in the box. Everything except the cylinders are still shrink wrapped. Iím not sure how long Kirk has been aging them. Dave, the biggest depreciation wonít happen until I start working on it  :lolb: :facepalm:  Bill, more pictures this weekend.
