I got some supplies!
i got some stuff at the Jacksonville Fall Festival that i think is pretty cool. i really cant wait to restore those metal clamps, and modify that mining lamp from 1997 to run off lithium and have an LED.

i figure getting supplies from yardsales and fleamarkets will be a good use of your support, and also keep things interesting.  so thanks again for all the help, you guys are really great ^^b
