Very nice work, Vertigo!

co-wrote it, was recording engineer for the session, which was at my studio, played organ on it, and mixed it. Forgot to trim the dead air off the front of it before uploading it, too. Ooops. Sorry. (fixed it)

I'd buy that :) Sounds great. Lots of potential there as for commercial use too!

Thanks!

Weirdly, one college radio station in Columbus, Ohio picked up on our last album and they play the heck out of it. We are one of their most requested albums. Which also means that we've had requests from students at the school to use our tracks in student films and such. If only we could figure out how to get just a minimum of air time from other stations, I think we'd have a similar response from a lot of folks.

This track is the first 'completed' (it's not, really, but it is getting there) track from our next album, which I'm hoping will have more of an impact, commercially (this is one of only two instrumentals. The rest are songs). This one needs to have a final organ solo recorded on it - the one that is there now is just random improv performed in the moment and has way too many mistakes in it - and then have a few odds and ends cleaned up in the mix. In truth, I don't know much about making commercial-sounding mixes, but our drummer does, so he'll likely do the final mix. I just did this one as an exercise, but it is coming along quite nicely, I think.

Those cutters are made by my buddy Andy Newlands of Strawberry Bicycle. Find them here: http://www.strawberrybicycle.com/gal...e=Tube_Cutters

They're expensive but if you need to make a cut that's dead nuts on the diameter of the mated tube, these are totally worth it. Compared to standard hole saws, they go a long way to reduce ovalization during welding [of thinwall (=<0.035") tubing].

There's one downside to these...if there's any flex or slop in your mitering system, these cutters will expose it and they'll do it by breaking in spectacular fashion. The kerf is pretty thick and cutting load high so you need some relatively serious torque to use these cutters for the first cut. I wholly recommend against attempting to use them in drill press or drill driven systems or using them with long arbors. My system is about as rigid as it gets, and I still rough cut with standard hole saws and then run a 0.020" cut with these cutters to make it perfect.

After the Christmas rush, I made something for myself today.






Needed a lightweight walking stick, and the adornment is ongoing, in a whimsical nod to the Jelling style of Norse art. The eagle was just screaming to be carved from the cut end of that tine.

I have another stick, same height, about twice as thick, that'll get done next - I'm thinking a dragon's face for the antler grip, if I can find the big piece I know I have somewhere in my shop.

Boil one can of Eagle Brand sweeten condenced milk x 5 hours uncovered and high.



Omitted from pic is 2 blocks of semi-sweet chocolate, melted.




Cool canned milk x 1 hour in ice water BEFORE opening.


























This one I made in the past.











I'll stop now.
This is not a cooking thread.

Happy New Year to all!
