You know what they say about boats? A deep hole that you throw money into. Same with swaging, except you get some return on your money. Good Luck and I hope your results continue.

No Pics.

To up load pics, just click on the photo with the small disc in the corner of it. It is located above the box you type in. It is the 6th box to the right of the box with the B in it...

It will ask where the file is, just direct it to the pictures. Then click uplode. Next, copy the IMG link, should be the middle one. You then paste that in the typing box. To get the upload off the screen, just click the picture button again..

Hope that helps..
