Billings and Spencer tool company has a pretty cool history. The founder got his skills for drop forging from the Colt firearms company. 

Pretty cool Gazz, i am also glad you left the open end with the logo. I love tools. The Snap-on and MAC truck are like shoes store to women for me. (yeah like i am the only one here)

After calling the mom for mother's day, I had a bit of time to practice my birds. Tried making it so the beak opened the bottle, and it does, but I found the legs and tail grab the bottle cap way better, and it sits in top of the bottle.

Yes, it does need to be straighter, and more symmetrical. But Its alot better than my first bird. 431133998_IMG_20190427_1303242882.thumb.jpg.b40824581c5c3ac8c72e2c2ef00ee871.jpg

I think I’m going to make one of these as warm up for each session.

Ooh I like em. I like the way you've turned the second loop and really like the texture in the top one.

Love it!  I’m glad you had a good time in my “shop”.  You picked up little bits of instruction well and had good hammer control.  You are on your way.  Let’s try to schedule more meet-ups.  Nevan was annoyed he missed the best part.

I do a lot of coiled cobra paper weights, but this one has his mouth open to open bottles. 200mm of 12mm square bar. The worst part was drawing out the tail. (Not an original idea - saw something very similar on You-tube).

Billy, I like it, looks like a good “bet you can’t in 10 seconds with your left hand “ opener, or “you didn’t know your only supposed to use your right hand for this” when you give it to a left handed person.
