Okay, Chug, I'm stumped, I can find naught of this pattern online or in the few pattern books I have.  Do you mind posting a photo and/or recipe when you have a chance?  Thanks

Since I was already at the vise tonight finishing the batch for the 2525 swap I figured I would bang out this batch as well.

Would USPS still be a reliable way to ship 1.92 grams of Crystal Meth and avoid the authorities??

LOL - thanks Chug.

heres a photo

Thanks Norm for just posting that photo.  Yours was the first website I went on when a general search turned up nothing. 

FishingBob is right, what a pretty fly, I'm sure the Chug-a-lug will do it justice.

Thanks for posting the pic @flytire. I don't have a cloud-based photo account, just what's on my phone and computer, so I think that's why I can't post pics at the moment. 

As for doing it justice, I can't make any promises, but it is darned pretty and I'll have fun trying.

Posting photos is hard right now regarding what platform you use. Kinda sucks but hopefully it will get sorted out

i can’t post photos from my postimage hosting service or even an attachment from my computer
