Thank You Dave!. I view Ed's post as a national treasure and I will move it to antiques and classics quite soon. Somewhere in my mind I remember Ed saying "do it this way or you're a turd" ("Although gap toothed booger eating moron" ain't bad). Classic Ed. Always hard to misinterpret.

I have had my ups and downs with Ed and his volatility yet There's a grudging respect there. I still consider him to be the gold standard when it comes to understanding studio tooling and equipment. He's out of pocket right now, on the road reassessing yet again his fragile relationship to a material he truly loves.

This is for me one of two posts I look for again and again over the last plus decade. The other being Dave's post on phosphate opals. There really are some giants wandering out there people and they aren't getting any younger.
