    Here's a couple of new tampers . I was playing with some scrap birch and decided to do some capture rings.

    Looking good Arthur.
    I don't have a lathe so I have to use knives and files.
    I have a bad habit of making them for people then just sending them out.
    I have recently turned to ebony.
    It's hard as iron and won't hurt your pipes if you use the dottle digger to do some minor work on the cake.
    Here are some old ones that I use every day, and I decided to make a new one for me out of ebony. Took me three days to get it right... so I'm not that talented.
    Every one turns out different.


    Edit: Forgot my "not so legal" racing tamper.

    When not at work, I spend my time playing video games, board games (not like scrabble. think Arkham Horror), tabletop wargames (Warhammer 40k, Kings of War) and adding to my collection of knives. Mostly Spyderco, but I'll buy anything that strikes me as unique and useful. I also spend alot of time watching Netflix with my parrot.

    Bobdobbs I can't pass up an opportunity like this.

    I also spend alot of time watching Netflix with my parrot.

    Shouldn't that read: "I also spend a lot of time watching Netflix with my parrotscope."?
    Otherwise, how do you watch movies using a parrot?

    Sorry... just poking some fun. It's been that kinda day.
    What's your parrot's name?

    @Lawrence Ah, I see how it is

    His name's Beebee (the breeder called him that, and he already knew it when I bought him, lol) and he's a 2 year old Senegal Parrot.

    You'll have to post some photos of Beebee.
    There are some pet strings here and there in the forum.
    I'm glad you can take some ribbing.

    In my spare time (often while smoking a pipe):
    I play online warfare games, battlefield bad company 2 is tops for me at the moment
    Mountain Biking (helps to live in beautiful brittish columba)
    Warhammer (not 40k)
    blues guitar
    acquiring new tattoo work
    general laziness!

    Dungeons and Dragons,WOW, and read

    You sure you're not talking about me?
    Haven't logged into WOW in ages. Stress from work means i don't really feel like grinding... Wish I could join a decent DnD game, but the DM's in my area are either hardcore fascists or slackers. Plus, every time I touch one of those 4th ed books I die a little inside.
    To anyone who doubts my geek cred: I listen to nerdcore hiphop. Yes, it exists

    Reading, mostly SF/Fantasy.

    Autocross and SCCA time trials with the Triumph in my Avatar.

    Building cars for racing. The only thing Triumph in my Spitfire is the body. It's powered by a Mazda rotary engine and has a custom built suspension using Miata parts. I'm working on a Honda Civic to run a 24 hour endurance race the end of May. We finished 10th last year. Hoping for a better finish this time.

    Antique engines. My oldest is a 1928 McCormick Deering.

    Antique Tractors. A group of friends and I have restored three of them that we take to shows along with the engines.

    And lastly, antique clocks. I have about 30 of them at the moment. I usually buy them broken and fix them myself. It drives my wife crazy when they are all wound.

    Mostly I like old mechanical things. Engines and clocks being my favorite.

    Toyman, I don't know what type of music you're into, but theres a Canadian guy named Fred J Eaglesmith that writes lots of songs about old tractors, small motors and such.
    His style of country music might not suit the average listener any more, and his songs are typically pretty depressing subjects. If somebody isn't dead, they're usually about to lose their farm
    But, judging from your hobbies you might be interested in these songs;
    John Deere B
    Small Motors
    Two Machines
    http://tiny.cc/xh70v
    Of course theres other great stuff on the album, like "Rooster Fight" and "I shot your dog"
    Fred Eaglesmith and the Flathead Noodlers. Nuff Said.

    Uncle Arthur, I've got a 1861 Ingraham wall clock on my bench now. It just needs a little TLC. Finding the time to work on it has been a challenge. This is probably my favorite. It's a 1900 Seth Thomas Seville.

    Lonestar, thanks for the link. We have a John Deere B in the works now. We just finished a 1949 Farmall Cub. I don't even have a picture of it completed. Here it's about 90%

    Here is one of the 1941 John Deere H. We have done two of these.

    Beautiful clock !
    Beautiful Tractors !
    Thanks for the pics, you've got some great hobbies there.
    I always wondered if anybody at the tractor shows know about Fred Eaglesmith, that album is probably my all time favorite.
    "John Deere B"
    I watched him check the oil,
    I watched him set the spark.
    He pulled on that old pumpcord 'til,
    He finally got it started.
    Then he listened to the motor,
    and then he set the time.
    When he got it going,
    I watched him slowly smile.
    It was a John Deere B, with a row crop front end,
    A handcrank and a flywheel, the original B.
    But it wont work another field, it won't farm another farm.
    Some restaurant up in Omaha, has got it parked out on its lawn."

    And as a bonus, theres a Pipe smoker on the album cover

    I used to study shotokan karate - earned my Shodan (first degree black belt). But ever since I got out of the Navy 15 years ago I haven't found a dojo that I could stick with. Too many kids, I felt like Kramer (Seinfeld reference).

    A few years ago I belonged to a good gun club that had their own league; similar to IDPA competitions, but the range went out of business and since then I haven't found a similar club or league. So my Kimber 1911 remains unfired.

    Lately I've been doing a lot of volunteer work for a local dog shelter. We only have the capacity to house a half dozen dogs or so, but we find homes for every dog we take in so it's very rewarding.

    And when I'm not finding homes for the Secondhand Mutts (that's the name of our shelter) I'm taking care of my two dogs, both rescues and both a lot of fun.

    And then the pipes. I usually go to both the Chicago and Columbus shows and have made some great friends at both.

    When I was younger, I spent summers collectin rattlesnakes for venom extraction/ antivenom production.
    For awhile I worked for an exotic animal dealer.
    I still keep a few reptiles;
    Heres some pics, but they were all taken in the evening, just before lizard bedtime. The animals are looking pretty drab compared to the colors in the morning when they're fired up!
    Heres a Haitian White-Lipped Anole

    Heres a Gonocephalus Chaemeleontinus

    Heres an Acanthosaura Armata

    I play electric guitar in a local heavy metal band in many pubs around the island. I'm a ocean addict! I practice surfing and Scuba Diving. I love my pets, I have dogs, cats and a snake; I jump from an Airplane in 2004 only one time (skydiving) but definetly is a sport that I wanna do on a regular basis! Unfortunatly is a very expensive sport (equipment) and also the lessons have too high prices! I also like to practice skateboard and in-line skates! My other addiction is the gym!

    An interesting thread. My bobbies include reading, hiking, camping, and fishing when I can find the time. And, while I don't really do as much of it these days as I used to, due to a lack of time, I enjoy knitting without using patterns. I just make it up as I go along.

    Here are a few items I have made:

    Other than smoking a pipe, im a cartoonist and skateboard nearly constantly.

    PipeTrucker: Youre a fine knitter, that sweater looks great. Have you thought of making a knit pipe design into somthing like that? That'd be great. I dont know the hours of work somthing like that takes though. So i might make it sound like its easy to do!

    Thanks, Johnny. It takes many hours to knit a complete sweater. The one nice thing is that I knit them "in the round" as a single, seamless piece, so when completed I don't have any pieces to seam together.

    I suppose I probably could do something with a pipe design in it, but that will have to wait until I get motivated enough to do a large project again LOL.

    Pipetrucker: I am thrilled and challenged by your skill! I'm not adept with knitting needles, so I'll have to try and work out a design for the pipe sheath-thingies for crochet. I'm also interested in how different yarns would work with the potential heat. I have a small bit of alpaca yarn that I may whip out.

    Someone ever tries to kill you, you try to kill 'em right back! Wife or no, you are no one's property to be tossed aside. You got the right same as anyone to live and try to kill people.

    I will soon be washing and carding out a nice fleece that I recently got. Should spin very nicely.

    Thanks, as I said, I just make it up as I go. The pipe holsters were something I whipped up one afternoon while sitting around in a truck stop. I love working with alpaca, but I think it may be too soft for such a project. Does make a great sweater though.

    Music - heavy metal, jazz, classical, fusions, ska, various other bits and pieces. I've played trumpet for 12-13 years, and guitar badly for about 5.

    I also read alot, mostly fantasy. Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman are amongst my favourite. I write poetry and the occaisional bit of prose, but nothing I've ever published or thought about selling. It mostly just goes up on deviantArt.com
    Philosophy is also something of a hobby as well as being my university course.
    I also paint and collect Warhammer - little plastic men that you stick together, paint and then game with.
    I'm an amateur chef, and have cooked in 3 restaurants since I was 16.
    Ohohoh, an as of Friday, I'll be a LARP'r too That seems to be about it.

    I listen to music
    I watch soccer (I'm an Everton supporter)

    everyone: as the originator of this thread, one of the requests was that there be pictures attached if possible. Tommy's example is why pictures are important.

    Amongst other things, I am a writer, reader of both traditional books and comics. I play bass poorly, I enjoy video games with focus on story and adventure, I'm involved in the heavy metal and punk scene in my area, I enjoy the company of fine women who play with handcuffs, whips and chains. I appreciate art, not in a pretentious way, but enough that I know what I like. I enjoy keeping up with developments in science and technology. When possible I'm a volunteer conservation worker. I bake as well from time to time.
