Bring Me The Head of Paul McCartney

In 2008 as I started building the Knuckster motor Sir Paul McCartney’s head went missing. It was a Sir Paul wax doll’s head – and it was left on a train when being transported to be auctioned … The head was made in the 1960’s and had been on display at the Louis Tussauds Museum in Great Yarmouth. In this photo the heads of my Knuckster motor is missing because I wanted to take a photo of how the piston domes are milled out for the valves and also the cutouts for the exhausts.
The best thing about the Knuckster's heads are that since they're both rotated clockwise – so are the outtakes for the valves and exhausts.

The best thing about Sir Paul McCartney’s head is that it had a £2000.00 reward and that a homeless person named Anthony Silva found it in a trash can at a railway station and collected the reward. So what are the worlds telling us? Does this mean we should go searching for Knuckleheads in railway station trash cans? Is there even a connection here, I bet there is.

    Overlays are to table décor what spice is to food, the zest that makes it all so much more appealing.
    An overlay is a tablecloth that is placed over another tablecloth to create a magical look that one cloth alone can’t create. Truly any tablecloth can be an overlay, all you have to do is put one cloth on top of another and you have an overlay. Usually an overlay is smaller than the linen it’s placed over, creating an obvious layering effect. An overlay can also be the same size as the linen it’s placed over; with just a bit of the bottom cloth showing for a subtle look or, the overlay can be shagged for an elegant and dramatic table. When it comes to what makes a wonderful overlay, there are no rules only your imagination.
