  2. Third annual TFF Secret Santa!

    If there were fossil shoes, handbags and dresses she'd sign up like a shot. As it is I've been tying to teach her the periods of the Palaeozoic for 20 years and so far she's got as far as the Cambrian.
  3. @Doctor Mud I'll buy half the bag off ya! I'm guessing its different to PVA wood glue mixed with acetone?
  4. What made this footprint?

    SLIGHTLY reminiscent of the ichnites in Polish Triassic fluvial ("Buntsandstein")strata,where the original sediment rheology (periodic overbank flooding!)interfered with the clarity of the imprint.

  7. interesting finds

    Try a magnet on the first object/specimen. It may be an encrusted piece of iron. It looks to be pretty old even if it is.
  8. A new soft-bodied Ordovician marine creature https://phys.org/news/2018-01-rare-million-year-old-cone-shaped-fossil-discovery.html
  9. Weird seashell?

    From what I recently read, H. ambiguus is named this way because it is kinda “in between” H. radix and H. nigritus, representing features of both species together.

  27. Air abrasion

    Thanks everyone! Its the Harbor Freight one that I tried with no success. @Kane I see that Paasche has different models what one did get? I find it strange that we have so few options build our own or patch something together. I am trying not to go the do it myself route due to issues with arthritis in my hands and arms.
