Welcome Coolchange of Tranquility Lost to the blog roll. He's got a wicked sling bow he made, posted up and his Great Grandfather's journal who apparently pulled a lot of trees for a living and was a man of few words. I hope he keeps deciphering that journal. I'm like a moth to light where that kind of thing is concerned.
On a related note, YeOldeFurt posted up a link of old historical type stuff that, if you are into antique machines, it will quickly become a time eater.
And, if you've blogrolled BAR, please drop one of us an email so we can reciprocate. The email addresses are in the sidebar..there...somewhere.
