Hello from Scotland

Post by Lumpendoodle on Tue Apr 19, 2011 7:56 am

Hi

I've just started flint knapping, so my biggest talent just now is reducing flint from nodes to gravel in sparrowfart time. Embarassed

Living in an area of Scotland known more for its slate than its flint, is also a bit of a handicap. So looking forward to any advice you chaps can provide.

Welcome

I have a cement company not far from my home, they turn tons of flint nodules to powder daily and pay people to do it.

I keep telling the manager I do it for free.

Stupidity got us into this mess, why can't it get us out
