I was a bit surprised to read "closed at owner's request".

The first thought that came to mind was perhaps there's a corona virus risk if crack scratchers are shared. Imagine the legal ramifications for the manufacturer in the case of an outbreak argh

The thread is alive and well.

My thanks to the folks who have recently bought crack-scratchers from me. It's helping me to buy timber to build dividing timber walls in my shed, so I can continue with my, "other" projects...

Just had a bit of a run on crack scratchers folks! Give me a couple of days to make some more! Thanks for your support! All the crack scratcher money is going towards timber to build the internal walls in my shed, so thank you.

OK. Made another 4. Sold one. Three left on the store. https://shop.buildsbybaz.com/?product=b … ors-friend

Hopefully that will give me enough breathing space to make some more through the week.

Wow.... sold 9 over the weekend, three today! Just made another batch now and they are in the oven, tempering as I type.

5 in stock.

I set the timer on my phone camera while I was forging tonight. I really like this shot.

LOL, thanks mate.

The coronavirus lockdowns have given me opportunity in many ways, to get things done, but in other ways have hampered me terribly. All in all, I have been hyper busy and got a lot done. To earn extra cash to get the Viper hangar/workshop finished, I have been forging these crack scratchers, something I'm glad I developed over the last couple of years of gold prospecting in the field. Each time I sell a tool, I can go to the local hardware store and buy more wood, steel and fasteners. Slowly getting there.

When I have no money, I roll up the sleeves and get the labour done where the extension on the other end of my house is to be built. After lifting the paver bricks, I discovered a concrete driveway underneath. At least now when I push the Viper around to the other side of the house, I have one less step to negotiate with the wheels.

Today I built a stud wall down the side of the Viper hangar bay. Hopefully I can sell enough tools to go get some more wood and finish it.

Demand for Baz Crack Scratchers is through the roof! I forged 16 more today, available now for easing of restrictions. I can't wait to get back out in the creeks and on that bedrock!!! http://shop.buildsbybaz.com

Ouch. Yeah, Australia post isn't called snail mail for nothing. I sent one to NSW from Csnberra early May. It went to Sydney, then Brisbane, then arrived back in NSW three weeks later.

Courier fees add too much expense to the customer unfortunately.
