    Yes, Rick is correct. The primitive light colored neck gives is a certain neanderthalic panache!

    Just good old evil eBay. From our Far Eastern comrades. I just looked for 100ml syringe. Lots of choice.

    Good idea on the syringe!
    I always immediately decant tru-oil and similar rubbing varnishes into smaller job-sized vials.
    Got tired of throwin out 2/3 of every jar due to oxidation.
    Even the ol trick of storing the jar upside down fails when its about half air.

    Great idea too! ... I always wipe the tip clean, squeeze the air out, and store upside down... Itll last long enough as long as ya stay buisy :p... Oh and only poke two needle holes in the foil when ya open it to get goin.... Like ya would a big can of Hawiian Punch kinda sorta. Know what I mean?

    haha, I like to pinch a kernel and get the juice into the tuner gears... sweetens up the tone

    ... then what? hook a chain to the lid and the other end to a horse? :lol:
