    Not yet, but I've got tough fingernails from years of being a farrier, lol!
    I'll look into chamfering the opposing short ends though, thanks for the idea!
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    I need a new baseboard for my enlarger. A granite slab should work for that! Now, how to drill some holes.
