    There have been variations of tillering tools before I came up with mine, they used screws to mark the wood and other things to watch the gap. There has never been a tool like I designed with a screw in pencil as far as I can tell, but I could be wrong.

    Anyway, they are all over the world now, there is a German version that is really over engineered, even a 3D printed one. Everyone who has one or has made one said they used my idea, the guy 3D printing them sent me a note with the picture below thanking me for the idea. I chose to make it shareware rather than patent it. The last thing I want at this point of my life is JOB and have to make these things.

    The German version;

    Looks like 1 & 1/2 cans of Pyrodex. That should hold me for a day or two.

    With the rain from the last few days and what is still up stream and seems to be getting replenished every week I would have to wonder.

    By November the river level should be down. I am planning to be there from November 1 through November 3. Have to be there Friday to sign up for the Woods Walk.

    I force patina’d a couple of my brass accessories. I really like the look, and plan to do the same to more muzzle loading brass accessories. Maybe even some of the parts to my pistols...
