Everytime I see your avatar, instead of the top of Patrick's head, I see a NAR logo.

Weird, huh?

Uhh, I don't know if you're pulling my leg or if I need to look for some issue.

I would not be opposed to someone casting the crayon sharpener nose cone. I have not yet tried my hand at learning to cast things. If you know the right person for the job, let me know and we will see if we can figure it out.

I also forgot to mention earlier that there is a great article about Orville Carlisle in the premier issue of Launch Magazine.

Here's a few photos of the sharpeners.


rick thanks for that great offer!. and the great pics! How the heck did you come across not only 1 of those,, but two and in different colors?

Let me ask around on the mold making.

Tedster is actually Ted Mahler. Hi Ted! Welcome. Great Carlisle Mark 2 article! Would you be intersted in doing a short run of resin cast nose cones?

Bill's comment about the "Ginsu" blade is hilarious.
I think a "Ronco" item should be attached as well.
How about a Dan Ackroyd special "Bass-O-Matic" ?

I also have a crayon sharpener in the original package. This pertains to Ted Mahler's excellent article. The sharpener Ted got had "Rocket Crayon Sharpener" printed on it as well as saying "Patented". The one I have says "Pat. Pending" which I believe to be a earlier one. This leads me to believe that the Leeds Sweete company found out what Orville was doing with their sharpener and started printing "Rocket" on it.

Ted, if you read this, I was trying to get the info that you received from Quest but, Matt no longer works there and since they moved Nettie said she wasn't sure when they might be able to help. Nettie asked me if I had contacted you. So, any chance I could get some of the info that you received?
