Most photo's on these pages are of sufficient quality that you may enlarge them somewhat to see them more clearly when you want. For those who don't know; on Mozilla Firefox browser you can just press and hold down the Ctrl key then press the + key, each time you press the + key the whole PAGE zooms larger, press Ctrl and - keys to go back smaller. I think this is the same for MS Internet explorer. Also for Firefox if you just want to enlarge a particular photo then right click on the photo, choose "View Image" then use the Ctrl and + keys, more than once if you wish to enlarge the photo and Ctrl and - key to go back smaller, press the back arrow button to return to the page. Other browsers most likely will have similar abilities some how or other.


**** WARNING ****

Do not take any information on these pages as a recommendation for you to do the same or similar. I do not endorse or recommend any procedures on any pages that are linked to. The things shown on any page or pages are peoples own experiments or procedures and results.    Metal melting, metal casting, gas burners, power equipment, grinders, and other workshop equipment are all potentially DANGEROUS.
