Paul, can you give me some pointers too???? I tried making a thin biface today and got it down pretty thin then snapped it. I think the problem was I did not isolate the platform near the end of the process. It was looking so nice too. I was aiming for a Dalton point but alas it was not to be!  :'(

Paul:  Me too, brother.  

No knapping for me today though.  Spent most of the afternoon working on my daughter's car and other Honey-Do's.  Can't be Primitive all the time you know.   ;) Taking my stuff with me tomorrow to work and hopefully I get some quiet time at lunch.    :D

gittin close - I'll show anybody that wants to watch D. I'm going to be heading up there on Wednesday, so if your going to be there early too we should be able to break some rocks before the big crowd arrives.

Paul, I may need to make some new tools for rock breaking since I think all my stuff is geared toward breaking obsidian. Think ya can give me a hand there too? Be neat to see what other knappers have in their kits and give them a try.

You bet D! I don't have that much copper rod left - have given most away to some select individuals, but can show ya what I use.
  That sounds like a deal I can't refuse Pappy - gonna have to pace myself ;D.
