That would be a decent idea, if I didn't already have a shield on my sight tuble assembly.

It's ok. I'm sober now. I WILL drink beer and mead with you. Just have to get my buttocks over there...

Hey! They're called SPEARS right?.....

That's some shiny gear there guys. I'm embarrassed.

They're too short to be decent spears though. Unless you used them to make the spear heads. I do have a large metal block (about 75-100#) that also doubles as an anvil. With my torch, I shouldn't have too hard of a time heating the metal up. Then it's a matter of hammering it into shape.

The keggle isn't even as shiny as I would have liked it to be. I have two more 'virgin' kegs that I can polish up next. If I can get one of them to the level I'm happy with, I'll convert it into my new boil keggle. One of the better ways to get your keg nice and shiny is to polish it up before you start cutting and drilling it. Once you cut and drill it, it's a pain around those areas. The buffing pads, and finishing pads, will snag on the edges and sling compound into the keggle. Not too hard to clean out, but why do that if you don't have to??

If you get out here sooner, you could be in time to have some of my 2010 mead. Only 18%. Got to bottle my 14% maple and check on the 14% traditional (both of those from just over a year ago now). In a year my Mocha Madness II mead should be going to bottles (also started last December). That one is only 21%. Got a 16% traditional I started about 1-1/2 months ago, should be in bottles in 12-14 months.

And that, ladies and germs, is how 'uncle Mike' shot his own foot off, then winged Bubba. Once they removed the shotgun from where Bubba rammed it, it took a few months before Mike could walk right.

Or maybe use fire to join a few together and make a respectable spear? I think we're solving this problem.

Exactly why my kegs are "natural " finish. I'm not taking all that crap apart now to polish it. I may start over though...

I can't see a downside to a trip to NH anymore. Not that I ever did but you make it sound awesome

Yeah... Plus it's legal to open carry. Carry concealed, you need a license/permit, in the open, nope... Just don't wait too long or you could be making the trek to Maine.

Open carry spears right? I mean that IS the topic..

A 10 foot blow gun is difficult to conceal but if you can pull it off, I believe it's legal in the UP
