Reilly - No I don't have one of those and it is beautiful. I like the brushed purple color.

And a few months later........it is complete! Thats if it can ever be complete, but at least for now I can walk away from this art piece and put my energy into the next adventure! Mixed Nuts Display now showing at the AZ Hiking Shack, Phoenix AZ.

I edited all of the boards up to 6/1/18 and the entire updated display is shown on the first post of this thread. Overall the first post serves as a great history gear guide covering the majority of nuts/chocks that were created all over the world. For ongoing I am still looking for help on filling in the missing mystery gear names, mfg dates, etc.

The Mixed Nuts Display totally rocks!
Big THANKS to everybody who donated to the Karabin Climbing Museum.

The display is great to see on the internet, but seeing it in person delivers a more WOW feeling!

Marty,

Do you have any tiny steel nuts made by John Ewbank, in the late 60's, in Sydney, Australia? They were stamped with his initials and used small stainless steel wire. I sent a set to Stephanie, in Corsica, a few years ago.

Ah yes...I prematurely posted that thread. Unfortunately/fortunately I found (2) small tubs of unprocessed (unclean and uncatalogued) items in my garage AND I went on a buying spree so I am trying to get all that sorted before the picture project begins.

On on more positive (progress) note; I should soon be loaning some "homemade gear" and Craig Fry's rack for a display they are assembling at the Bend Rock Gym.

steveA - Ewbank nuts no I don’t have any. I believe Stephane in Corsica is heavily seeking those!

xCon - AZ Hiking Shack has the Mixed Nuts Display,
Phoenix Rock Gym is bolting stuff, large cams, vintage items, 6000+ schwag items.
Patagonia Corporate has the Chouinard Climbing Equipment
Focus Climbing Center I am creating shoe displays for.
….and who knows what is next……If God sends me the gear, the display will be created!

Roots - With climbing gear, there is always something more to get excited with!

I was looking through my pitons and forgot about these nut gems. Adding them to the Mixed Nuts Display.

xCon - Totally awesome. Love to have the shoes! A few years back I made a 5.10 shoe display which is at the rock gym. I have a few many shoe samples donated by Chuck Blackwell, and a few many stickers so I combined them and created this display.
