We need a size comparison. Can you take a picture of you smashing your thumb with one of the hammers?

Some really beautiful work on your part.
Something bound to become a heirloom.
Do you sign your pieces?

Thanks Ernie J. Well, I haven't figured out how to sign the miniatures without defacing them, and don't think that I could write small enough to do it. Maybe I should develop a punch stamp or something like that. Thanks for the thought. It may be that posting them here is documentation.

ps: I'm living in the shadow of Pikes Peak - and loving it :) Ralph

Thought some might appreciate this product of home casting.



They were cast upside down from this pic. The base here was actually the sprue into which the molten metal was poured. The hammers on my tool board were also made employing the lost wax process. When this mold was broken off I discovered that I didn't have the heart to separate the twins and finished them to high luster and made "twin" handles for them. Ralph
