269932 Michael Suwczinsky <nicknaylo@g...> 2020‑02‑11 Re: Cant hook WTB
Thanks for that link, I was thinking of an earlier episode when Roy and
Peter races their way thru a pair of can’t hooks and the winner got to weld
up the froe !

A quick review of the St. Roy archive (thank you again Joe Parker!) and it
was season 2! 1980 or ‘81 maybe. Quite a treat to watch the same two guys
make the same thing 30 years apart. A galoot timeline if there ever was.

Roy’s cluelessness is an act. He may not have Peter’s skill set, (who does?
Among blacksmiths Peter Ross is a master of18th century efficiency), but
Roy was keeping up.

The more recent ep is much clearer in terms of instruction and process.

Now to figure out how to post the old episode
