  2. Is this a gastropod?

    I haven't been able to wrench it from the rock yet, but here's the other end in case it helps.
  3. Is this a gastropod?

    Can we have a view of the side?
  4. Possible Paleocene Montana Aquatic plant help needed

    There is a non-aquatic extant bush that has leaves similar (kind of pointy on the sides) to that but I don't know the name of it.
  5. Sometimes You Have To Whack It !!

    After working on some other fossil related stuff, I figured that I would open a few concretions, heck they are not going to open themselves if I don’t get this process going again, plus I need to get more material for the September Braceville Shaft Mine Trip put on by ESCONI. Nothing special was found today, but here is what I believe is a nice “Plain Worm”, I will have to clean it up a bit. Here are some others finds- Pecopteris- Neuropteris- Bark and Sub-Surface Bark- Annularia- needs to be cleaned up. Myalinella meeki- Ano of course there were countless ones that contained nothing, but I do hate it when perfect concretions split correctly and are void- here are a couple examples.
  6. Help ID please

    Plastic explosives will just slowly burn. Not good to inhale the fumes though. You can even shoot the stuff without consequence. However, if you lit it on fire & then hit it with a hammer or shot it it might explode (or so I've been told).
  7. Compressor for prep?!

  8. Yesterday
  9. CP air scribe?

    https://www.harborfreight.com/21-gal-25-hp-125-psi-cast-iron-vertical-air-compressor-61454.html This is the one I use as well. I’ve had it for 4 years.
  10. Recent exploration in the Triassic Basin

    I am not sure about the supergroup. I would need to do more research on that aspect. This is the Durham Basin of the Triassic Basin. This area is beginning to explode with construction. Perhaps more sites will open.
  11. Recent exploration in the Triassic Basin

    My suspicions were confirmed today. We believe it to be an Aetosaur.
  12. Compressor for prep?!

    How many gallons is it? 20?
  13. Compressor for prep?!

    What compressor are you running Kris?
  14. CP air scribe?

    Sounds good. Can you send me a link? What compressor do you use?
  15. Compressor for prep?!

    I like a oiled compressor because they are quieter than the oil less ones. You must have an air filter in your supply line and it will catch any oil and most of the moisture before the air gets to your tools. You have to oil scribes anyway so a bit of compressor oil isn’t the end of the world. I have a separate line running filtered air through a desiccant for my abrasive system. I never turn my compressor off either. I close a valve on the air line to avoid leaks causing the compressor to cycle when I’m not working but that is all. Don’t forget dust collection. You have to do something with all that rock you are scribing off. Also, ear, eye, and lung protection are imperative.
  16. Back to childhood

    Very nice! Thanks for sharing the adventure! Not often that We get to see fossils from that part of the world.
  17. Looks like some nice finds! Thanks for taking Us along.
  18. Killer finds! Thanks for sharing and good luck with the return trip.
  19. More UV Stuff

    I found a couple other cool pieces from different species.
  20. Penn Dixie Coming Up

    Guilty as charged. Monica makes good brownies
  21. Hash Plates- A Snapshot In Time

    I know there was another post on Hash Plates, I believe that @Bobby Rico made it, but I can not find it for the life of me. Here are a couple pieces from my recent visit to the Ordovician road cut of Lawrenceburg, Indiana.
  22. Mammal Bone ID from Rare Location

    I had the same feeling! Glad you brought it up.
  23. Jalama Beach, Santa Barbara, First Fish

    Well, at least You found something (other than a dead critter). Looks like the whole fish is there, it just exploded.
  24. Possible Paleocene Montana Aquatic plant help needed

    I can't help you Chris but what a pretty plate. The leaflets look like pink flowers. Definitely mother nature at work!
  25. Is this a gastropod?

    Is this a gastropod? The sample is 1.5 cm long.
  26. Penn Dixie Coming Up

    Looks like you dun real good. Was great to meet you and all the other fossil forum folks. Monica even brought the formum crew brownies of which gus and his kids had multiples.....
