Fixing mistake for Tumido crab

Recommended Posts

   About a year to two ago I went on the prep attack on this crab from New Zealand.  of course I picked the wrong side!   My compressor went on the blink about 2 weeks ago so, being bored,  I decided to repair this ventral side so that I can go on the prep attack on the dorsal side,,,,, someday.   I glued back on a big piece of rock and then filled the void with a bunch of rock-ite with some black coloring and covered with tape to hold its shape.   Once dried and cured I will simply sand it to the shape of the rock, then I can turn it over and start prepping.   Aways something, but now its almost ready.

Waiting for prep projects to complete is the reason for this country's rise in morbid obesity.  I figure ynot/Tony will be about 400 pounds by the time you finish.

I got a good weapon against that "morbid obesity" stuff. I just go out to the desert and spend a week rockhounding.

  Aaaaaalrighty then, super nice to have my compressor working again.  Did about 4 hours of rock removal on the 'correct' side and ran into the carapace.   Just super nice to find 'CRAB'!!!   A long ways to go, but thats with most fossils in concretions.  At least the kind i work on.  This rock has about 20 more hours or so, but should turn out nice?  At least its not 'sticky'!!!
