We used to make things in this country; #330

Here's a craft item from the past, a cast statuette of a generic hockey player, paint it to look like your favorite! Bobby Orr!, Stan Makita! How Canadian can you get.
  I suspect it's a polyester resin with a talc fill. The name Polytal is a commercial name for talc. Not surprisingly, the company seems to be long gone.

Maybe gone but something equally good in it place...
Tombler R. Dr. Orthopedic Surgeon at 1500 Power Dam Drive Cornwall ON

See the good doctor is making better!

I'd make mine look like Tim Horton!

VectorWarbirds, I googled that address, I expecting a wreck of a long neglected single story warehouse, but nice spot, look at that "shop"!

VectorWarbirds said...

Yes Mr. G its nice to see an address that isn't a abandoned building for once. I'd love to see inside that place!

I am terribly confused by the exchange between Vector W. and Mr. G. I googled the address too, and all I got was a photo of an empty country two-lane. (Is it just me?)
