Poltergeists with Stamps

Happy Easter Weekend Everyone! It would be happier here except we just got a dusting of disgusting snow on the ground. I thought this was supposed to be Spring! :(

I've been doing some grinding the past two days, getting stuff into the pipeline so I can keep things going...the pace often seems glacial but progress is inevitable.

Anyway, today I have some stamped Poltergeists. This is pretty close to the end of the Poltergeists for now. They are $55 plus shipping and once again, it will be one per customer, mostly different stamps so I'll send what I send. Thanks for stopping in and I hope everybody has a safe and fun weekend.

Sold Out, thank you folks!

Raw Bar Poltergeists

Howdy Folks,

Sold Out, thank you!

Mini Poltergeists with Stamps

Hey Everyone,

Tonight I have some Mini Poltergeists done. These S35VN steel tools are the same size and profile as the Ghosts (2.5" OAL) from last year but they have a single 1/2" hex opening. Originally I was going to call these the Cyclops but they look more like a Mini Poltergeist to me now. :)

This small batch has my antique stamps on them and are $55 each plus shipping, link is below. The batch is small so one per customer please and since most of the stamps are different I'll send you what I send you, they're all very cool. Thank you!

First Wave is Sold Out, thank you!

How About Some Action?

Howdy Folks! I'm back. Feeling great, full of energy and the surgeon just gave me the go ahead to get back to my mostly normal life again. I explained to her that my life is far from normal... :D

Anyway, today I have some plain stonewashed Poltergeists done. I'll have a series of small batches of tools over the next few days but we'll start out with these first. They are $50 plus shipping and the link is below. Thanks for bearing with me and for your patience!

Plain ones are gone but I have more tools on the way. Thanks!

Feeling Great

Yeah, so it's just amazing what one week or lazing about recovering from surgery will do for you. I'm feeling almost back to normal. I have a followup visit to the doc in a couple of days, but I think I'm ready for some light work this week.

The first batch of tools came back from heat treat a few days ago but they are going back for another round of tumbling. These guys had some shakeups over the winter and a bunch of older workers left. The new guys are just not paying enough attention yet and so they let stuff out the door before it's ready. Not enough cycle time on the tumblers so back they go and I gave them a good chewing out. The second batch was due to ship to me on Friday but after our discussion they agreed to just go ahead and retumble those as well as a preemptive step. I should be getting that second batch by mid week and so end of this week I think the sales will finally be starting back up.

Off to do taxes now. :(

Disappointed but Upbeat

Hey, so I was hoping those Poltergeists would be back from heat treat by now but for some reason these guys are dragging their feet. That means they will not be back to me until Monday at the earliest but more likely later on next week.

Now, next week I am taking some days off, probably the whole week in fact. I'm having my gall bladder out. It's an outpatient laproscopic surgery and really shouldn't be too big of a deal but I'll be sore and doped up for a couple of days at least. Maybe by the weekend I'll be back on my feet and moving forward.

The great news is, I have just a ton of stuff going so the middle and latter part of April is going to be crazy crazy busy. Those who have been wanting G5 Prybabies will not be left out because there are three whole batches in the works. Probably will be May on those but they are certainly on the way. Also, Poltergeists and mini Poltergeists in large quantities and the E115 tool. And the titanium Poltergeists and mini Poltergeists have also been started. I'm contemplating some Gasbabies too.

The Dace knives are on hold indefinitely. I had some production difficulties but I'm still hopeful that the batch can be saved. I'm looking at my options and I think there's a way to get them finished to my satisfaction eventually but don't hold your breath on them.
