TACOMA RESTORE BUYS for February!
At long last I can cross BELTSANDER off my list of lifetime achievement goals. This vintage 4inch Craftsman in black PVC and Non-Reflective Aluminum is self grounded, but still uses a great many metal parts. Note: rubber mudflap. This sander is a BEAST; ONLY $12 DOLLARS!!!!
I also picked up some giant files and one huge wood rasp & Tack hammer for a buck each.
My fingers are already thanking me for the tack hammer. It's really hard to pound finishing nails with a 2 pound cross-peen.
and now the moment you've been waiting for:
Behind the Scenes at THE AMERICAN MUSEUM OF ALASKAN ENTREPRENEURSHIP
The Laboratory (aka Phantom-Turtle Werks)
Grand South Hall Art Gallery
Natural History Specimen Exhibit
Minerals of the Solar System

|I see an Adam's Peanut Butter jar sans peanut butter in the Natural History Specimen exhibit, can't wait to see what creature gets displayed in there.
What's that thing that looks like a meat grinder in the Grand South Hall Art Gallery?

|Ah! That sir, is Harold LeMay's favorite sausage grinder (on display courtesy of grave robbers).|

|OMG, that is an amazing museum. Better than when I saw it. Never saw all of the rocks.|
Belt sanders can be scary. Make sure it is in the off position before you plug it in or you are in for some fun and crazy times.

|That's a nice unrestored barn-find sander.
Thanks for the tour! The flickr version with comments is great. I finally get to see the chalkboard Icon I had heard about. Love the anvil and the car display. And the vise, lol. Looks like my Harbor Freight drill press. I'm glad there are others who dig stuff like old tools and doo-dad finds. Like the old chisel I found in the bottom of the chimney, an old power tool case, and marbles and useless stuff I found digging in the yard. Makes me want to build me a museum, too. I'm inspired to at least put it all in one location. Just like that room in Citizen Kane; only different. Anyway, thanks for keeping me awake another hour.

RR Anderson is one of the most curious characters in the UFO lore and the history of underground cartooning. He fought bizarre underground beings in the caves of Alaska, was wounded by a laser before it was invented, and had a background with the clandestine branch of the Tacoma Cartoonists Society.
