    :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    If it's connected by a wire, have you tried re-routing the path of the cable? If it's wireless, have you tried changing the batteries?
    Just guesses, but might be worth a try :rolleyes: Great pic!


    Wonderful shot :thumbsup:

    The textures are remarkable :thumbsup:

    Lost in the throes of a muse :rolleyes:
    Not far from wrong, LOL. Scary, isn't it :eek:

    SUH-WEET :cool: !

    Here's a pic I posted in the EDC thread today :thumbsup:

    [​IMG]

    My maternal grandfather was part of the British D-Day forces. He was always making things. He made small 'Spitfires' out of old British ha'pennies with just a hacksaw and a pair of pliers. Usually he'd round the wings and make them look just like a tiny plane. The one in the photo above was made when he was old, out of a British decimal coin (2p), he didn't file the edges so that me and my brother and sister, who also got one, could see they were coins :)

    That is very cool, Jack! I'm staring at it, trying to puzzle out the origami in reverse. Our pennies are much smaller, and not really copper anymore, so I think it would be pretty hard to do. o_O

    Very interesting Jack. Did your grandfather cut the penny into separate pieces and "weld" them back together? I can't figure out how it could be done keeping the coin all in one piece. The little booklet they are sitting on is also of interest. Can you elaborate on the booklet?

    Thanks Dwight, it's been a long time since Sheffield made a Barlow like this I think, and Wright's have certainly never made one :) :thumbsup:

    Thanks folks, the penny is still in one piece, the wings are single thickness, and the rest is folded double. I thought I had a better pic of it somewhere, but it turns out I just have ANOTHER photo of it! :rolleyes: I'm glad I still have it :) :thumbsup:

    I know a guy who makes rings out of coins, pretty incredible really, as there's no join at all, but he has a machine to do it :thumbsup:

    I still haven't managed to get my internet service sorted out yet I'm afraid, it makes uploading pics extremely difficult :( I'm not going to be around much over the next couple of days I'm afraid, but I'll pop in when I can :thumbsup:

    @Jack Black the barlows look really great! The stamp (as others have already said) came out very nicely. What are the dimensions of this barlow? Smaller, like the Ashley's Choice lambsfoot, or bigger like the 2019 Ironwood lambsfoot?
