@MurphyStone-yes this is the Michigan saw you likely saw locally. It is hard to find good older equipment in New Jersey!

On the cheap harbor freight 1HP motor will get you going.   

Bummer was hoping you were in Mi, always looking for more people around here.

Thank you all for the tips. I have been looking at Baldor and Leeson 3/4 hp motors. I think that will work out fine based off of what you all have said!

Bats are awesome little guys.  Eat the mosquitoes by the thousands.  All the bats we see here are named Buddy.   :icon_sunny:

:) :) In Chinese culture, bats are a sign of good omen in general, and harbingers of wealth.

I used to own part of the Snake River Dendritic claim which adjoins Dale's Paiute claim, I would say Paiute on that one.

Hi Kurt I have a soft spot for those little guys and there bigger cousins the australian fruit bat
Dave

Nice to see there are more people out in the western world that do not reject bats outright.
I have seen Fruit-bats in Micronesia (Not sure, but I think it was in Tonga or Samoa).
Amazing creatures, even close up and nothing of the scary beasts they are made out to be.
This piece is based on a group of four (in the actual picture, a fourth is hiding under the wings at the bottom) ,
and I think they look outright cute.

Hi Kurt I have a soft spot for those little guys and there bigger cousins the australian fruit bat have stopped on the highway a few times when seeing them caught up in barbwire fences. I wrap them up in a towel and untangle there wings then let go into a tree can't bear the thought of them dying a slow death on the fences. Thank you for your photos your work is just amazing looking forward to seeing the finished piece.

Dang!  Some nice looking marcasite agate on first run?  Was this a find or a purchase?  Also, is that a flame agate or a Paul Bunyon on the second sequence?  Those are some fun looking slabs you  brought forth!
Purchased it, being in Michigan I don;t get to go dig often.   The second photo is actually purple passion in a tube formation, in more a quartz druzy, something I had not come across before.
