Superb capture Stan, you must have polished them for to occasion, the light is fabulous. I remember these lessons with fondness, never produced any thing anywhere near this quality though

Thanks Malc. I much preferred metalwork to woodwork mainly because nothing useful was produced in woodwork except a clothes horse, now long gone. I have a slide bevel somewhere in a toolbox and had to pay 2pence old money for the material (steel). No idea how much it would cost to purchase from a shop now

....Price in Italy is expensive....items older than me of 1 year.....and they will be alive for 58 years yet. This is difference between metal and meat (that is metal without an "L")

Lovely rich tones there Stan and not a bad bit of metalworking either - nothing I made has survived this long.

Carl
No matter how many lenses I have owned - I have always needed just one more

Thank you Giulio and Carl for the kind comments. they have certainly outlasted the school which I believe is now a community centre and other offices

The lighting's right, the tone is right, the compo is right
(almost as good as your metalwork).
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

I remember copperwork! Still have a serviette ring which is in use. Also made an ashtray - but that has long gone! Nice image Stan!

Thank for the kind comment Andy. I seem to recall a hexagonal serviette ring but not sure why I don't have one. Perhaps missed school and so missed that project

Hexagonal sounds nice; mine was annular with curled out edges!
