  1. tractor supply had packs on the shelf....i actually commented to one of the employees about it... I own a horse farm and every feed catalog has them listed in many sizes ...if you have a dog or cat .i'm sure the local vet would give you a few if you told him or her what you were using them for.
  2. I am in the same boat as you.. very little dispaly room and the dust is terrible... so i tried my hand at making my own case...made from 5 glass frames found at the dollar store.. and a glass cutter from ace...total spent under $10 ..it was much easier to cut the glass than i thought.
  3. dip the window in future .. it will hide the scratches
  4. I'm a huge fan of lesney matchbox. I have a fair collection i also collect tootsietoy, corgi, imply, london and a few other manufactures. matchbox first started in 1953 as an offshoot of a bristish die cast company. their first issue was the Queens coronation coach . one of the original founders ,i think his name was jack odel made a small version of their companies road roller for his daughter to bring to school. she could only bring a toy to school if it could fit into a matchbox.
  5. pliers... to help prevent this problem i started using press and seal wrap. i make sure the bottle and cap is clean, using paint thinner and a paper towel ,making sure the lip is dry. then i cut a round piece of press of wrap.and..press and seal the top of the paint bottle . Works best on new bottles... keeps the cardboard disc clean ..and you can shake the paint.. just replace the wrap and seal after each use...takes a little more time. but i hate using pliers. i always seem to grip to tightly and bend the lid.may as well toss the bottle after that
  6. really nice..well done
