    Cool pics. I know Dave has mentioned that the taper on the adaptor is only for aesthetics, but once I trained my pinky to be a button pusher, my thumb sits perfectly on the angle of the adaptor. For those of you waiting it is worth it. It took me a little while to get used to the back button and find the throw I liked best, but something about the size and shape of the T once it finds that right place in your paw is perfect.

    David, are you able to reclaim any of the scrap and shavings?
    Can that be remelted back into usable stock for the next PV?

    Much like Santa Clause and the Tooth Fairy, there's this fat balding guy in a dirty, torn tee shirt who visits every metal shop in the world. After muttering in an Eastern European accent about the low price of scrap metal he writes the shop owner a very small check and along with his Spanish speaking helpers rides off into the night with the scrap.

    No reindeer were injured in the making of this film.

    You're kidding but there is a use for everything, if one is creative enough..

    100 years ago or so I worked in an automotive machine shop. Part of that job was re-surfacing drums and rotors, naturally. One day this older gentleman walked into the shop and asked if he could take some of the cast filings out of the bin. I gave him an odd look and said; "Sure". He proceeded to fill up a handful of coffee cans that he came with.

    Curiosity got the better of me and I finally had to ask the obvious question --

    "Sir, what is it exactly that you're going to do with inexpensive cast iron filings that normally I toss in the garbage?"

    "Well, if you must know -- I grow tulips with them"

    "You do what now?"

    "Tulips. I grow tulips with the filings"

    "Tulips need raw iron?"

    (at this point he sighed, realizing he had to give me [a snot-nosed punk of a kid who wasn't accepting his evasiveness] a better answer)

    "See, when I plant my bulbs I toss some filings down into the hole. The filings start to rust immediately and that beautiful rust color makes it way into the flowering petals"

    A month or two later he came back with examples of some of the flowers he grew. That rust color just haphazardly streaked through the petals of the flowers. They were truly stunning.

    So, what color does aluminum turn when it rusts? LOL
