    Phillip I'm sorry I did not respond earlier but I thought it was one of those sets photos that just spoke for themselves. After rereading some of your input it would seem like you were a little disappointed in the rest of us for not responding(I was in the same boat waiting for some responses that didn't seem to come myself and didn't like how it felt). They are some very nice projects indeed and I'm sorry for not responding sooner now that I missed the boat on your offer.Although I don't qaulify for it could you enlighten me on the making of the tanks?
    Thanks Pat:eek:

    Philip, I got my tanks in the mail yesterday - they look great!!! I can hardly wait to get'em painted up and set beside a couple of old buildings.
    Thank-you soooo much!

    Hey Philip, I could use 2 or 3 more of your propane tanks. If the price isn't too steep I would be happy to buy them from you. I think that you have a real market for your details. I'll be looking for your ad in MR in the near future. ;) :) :cool:

    I'm still trying to figger out a way to mount the outhouse so as not to hide the beautiful board detail along the bottom. I do have a prototype as I worked on a building project years back that provided an old elevated outhouse from the original estate. Got a mite breezy in there when winter Nor'easters would blow in...;)

    details etc

    Glad everybody likes those tanks and other stuff. I'm in the process of re-working the tank. I'm a rookie at this stuff but keep struggling trying to improve my castings. Its no secret in making the tanks. There is about twenty steps in making the master sort of correct...a whole lot of filing and finigling and above all time consuming. My next propane tank will be made out of a old rubber eyedropper. I'll show you how ..its pretty easy. Pitchwife: e-mail me again with your address and I'll send em out this weekend. Freebies rule! Jon Monon is making me some of his famous switch stands. cool can't wait. Shaygetz that outhouse needs a small footer just use some plastic stripwood. That should keep it breezy :rolleyes:

    Hi Philip
    Got your tanks today. Many thanks. It is hard to imagine getting them any more perfect. You'ld need a strong magnifying glass to tell. Again, thanks.
