starting with the revolution..i believe $59 gets you a bottle and a hose.

eclipse's have the same deal for a little more...about $80.

you probable have to call them or email them. ask for Dave..he is the owner..tell him i sent you.

okay i have a ? already...when doing a drop shadow-do you do that freehand? should someone like me being a rookie like just paint a thin line along the appropriate parts of the mask? (if that made sense to you)

that brush should be fine...as far as shadows are concerned, making them freehand is more natural looking...makeing a shadow solid will be more of a graphic than a shadow.

anything that goes up to 80PSi is fine...you will need a moistire trap...compressors get hot and the condensation transfers to teh tank. its a small investment, but worth the $$$

Charlie, thanks for the help, it did make a difference.

In any case, I liked the swords. Because of the friends I have in the SCA, they know folks who know folks, etc. who do some blacksmithing. Much of their work is in armor, but there are a few who'll do some weaponry. If you're interested, I'll drop you a pm with contacts. They do pretty decent work, but, the more affordable ones are stricly ornamental.

I had a guy offer to do me a 17th century claymore for $750. That's about as cheap as you'll find for something that's not ornamental. He claimed he would give it to me polished and sharp enough to shave with...not bad for a 6 foot blade. Anyway, just trying to return the favor.
