Wow.. I REALLY REALLY like the Flat black!!! Its kind of old meets new. And the woodwork.. as always.. looks great!

If you've got an electric stove.. I say, chuck the stove, and plug in the machine! You can always order out.. And with a machine like that, who needs food?! Seriously though, I hope you find a way to get power to it.. you've done a marvelous job on the restoration.

Are those spalted wood handles of some kind? They sure look interesting!

Hey Jeff,

thanks, don't know what my wife is going to think about ordering out so I can have that machine plug in.. :D
BTW, IF I get to plug it in you are welcome to the "grand opening" :)

yes, I bought that wood some time ago and not 100% remember its name, but I think is spalted Maple wood.

Looks like these groups allow helping the spring. Nifty design.

The group does allow for that. I've found the spring to be good enough that it isn't required and generally reduces the quality of the shot.
