I met Mike 8 or 9 years ago at a coin show and we chatted for a good half hour. Bought some of his pieces to study with the full intention of giving this medium a try. Turns out I just don't have the strengthor dexterity to not only make a good cut but also do it safely. I went through a few tools, a few buffs and a few band-aids. I figure it's time to move some of these along to another home. I had mike sign all a bought but this one. It does have his stamp on the back..
