  • 4.5" Hornstone Point

    This base is not quite right but it would get the job done.

    You did it again! Great point! As for the base, unless it's driving you banana's, then don't worry about it.

      Ron - That's perfect enough me and these old eyes. As you well know by now, we perfectionists are seldom satisfied with our product because we know where the mistakes or woops are, but to us Novices, your stuff is always perfect in our eyes. I really like it and appreciate all the work you put into it. By the by, if I happen to get a day off from the current job, I've been invited back to the area where we found all that chert you worked into points for me. I'll see if I can pick up another load and mail it to you for your own use, if you want it??
