Actually, an alligator or crocodile can move faster in short distances than a thoroughbred race horse.  From: Death in the Silent Places or Maneaters- Peter Hathaway Capstick.  He brings out a lot of misconception of wildlife.  Read those two books- great reading.  As he states, in Africa, you are protein, like every other living thing.

In Topic: Turning wood

Hi, everyone!  For great information on woodturning, go to  www.woodturner.org and jump in.  You don't have to be a member to look at things on the forum.  Keep in mind that the lathe is the cheapest part.  You will have chucks, tools, some way to sharpen tools.  Again, here is a good place to start or go the the link.  Woodturning is like rod building- a vortex from which there is no escape.

In Topic: Bubble-Less Epoxy

When I used a brush, I loaded the bristles woth epoxy to eliminate any air pockets.  I then put the brush on the foil where I poured out the epoxy and pressed out any excess.  Also, let the epoxy spread out on the foil and gently blow on it with a straw.  Just don't drool on the epoxy.  A straw can be used to blow on the wraps.

Hey, guys, been off a long time but check the forum occasionally.  For a Vietnam veteran, use the gold and red colors that are for the VN service ribbon.  I think there would be some examples with a search on this forum.  Looks like the same crowd here.  Need to choose one of the regulars to tease or just downright insult.  ;)
