I took a break from working in contract preps last night and spent an hour with the Super Jack attacking the crab that I got from @Doctor Mud. This far, the crab doesn’t appear to be sticky or covered in calcite. :fingerscrossed:

Looking at the first picture with the direction on it. Is that from splitting it and gluing back together? Is that how you determined which side was up?

A very slow and tedious opening!

I think Craig used x-ray vision (or decades of collecting crabs) to mark it for me. I'm just glad he did because I can't read these concretions at all. There's no breaks in the concretion at all, so as long as I don't botch the prep, it should be a great crab.

I have 100% absolute faith in you Kris.  The only thing you have to worrie about is wether or not the claw tips go under the 'face' or not.  Best of luck and have fun.

Nice job so far, can't wait to see your progress on it.

Now that I have my scribes/air hammers set up , I need to get a hold of a crab to prep myself.
