Thanks for that post Gerard, I was unaware of Michael or his beautiful work. He really does some fantastic work.

I'll be passing along this information of his work to our SF Association. For any members who may be interested in it. Again, thanks!

Thanks for the video. I myself used to build guns like that. Southern mountain rifles, Tennessee rifles, flintlock pistols, and the occasional blunderbuss. I quit building two years ago- my eyesight is going- but I still have a box full of parts and locks. Perhaps there is still one more gun left in me. In any case its good to know there is someone else out there still left to carry on the tradition.

Boy, I bet that's a great watch....if I could ever get Vimeo to run. I'm about convinced that I just don't pay for enough bandwidth, since my resources and video drivers seem sufficient.

Vimeo just don't work. Darnit.
