Default Greetings from OHIO!

Hello the house!

Noobie here east of Cleveland waiting for my Classic to deliver (f5 the tracking).. tomorrow. I've pestered Steve with interminable inane questions so you fine folk might endure less but I apologies in advance for anything stupid I utter.

My background is oil painting, classically (read brutally) trained. I was passionate about sculpture until my wrists disagreed. I focused on oil painting and after catching the mania from my better half, watches. Sometimes both at the same time. The later has fed the earlier many many times.

School was challenging and very long. I liked it. I am looking for more. This new medium opens new vistas I am very eager to explore. Bulino work is fascinating to me.

Any fellow Buckeyes here? Any recommendation on options to learn? Anyone in the area willing to teach?


All the best,

NML

This is a good tool. Purrs like Eartha Kitt.



I love that.

Thank you Steve. Need to add the Bleile's Graver templates to my banknote back-order.

Oh good glad all arrived safe. Great photos!

Send an email for Karla to see to add the templates you'd like added.
Are you having time to work with the graver over the weekend?

Good with the angled binoculars coming. I have a set of those adjustable angled binoculars. I have a 200mm objective lens installed. It is around 8" clearance.
