    I understand how those bad days go. Heck, I know you remember me fighting with nickel a while back!

    Glad to hear it got a bit better.

    I'm off to start my 55 mile commute home soon...your 55ft. commute sure beats that.....

    The best art teacher I ever had told me never to over work a pice of art. If you don't like what's coming out put it down do something else and come back to it later with a new set of eyes.

    Colin,
    Thats exactly what I have been doing, I am currently working on another batch of 3 knives. I have the blades hand finished and they need handles now.

    Yup. Same thing happens in the lab... One particular time, I came into work, picked up a flask containing a compound I'd spend a month making and dropped it, losing most of it in a drain. I took the rest of the day off and didn't really want to come back the day after that either.
