lump sum...













Broke out the ol' fresnel lens today.  Attempted to melt about an ounce of sterling silver with it.  Just a little too much haze in the sky...only reached 1100°.  Had to resort to a propane torch to get it liquid.  Finally formed my first .925 nugget.  Topped off the day with a great visit from new animal loving land owners - Kenneth and Chris.  They just closed on some property north of me.  72,94,51,0,B,0

Much coolness today. Haven't seen the lens in a while. The nugget is so nice. Another item for the TFL Mercantile. Nice of the new neighbors to drop by.
