We can, I just wasn't sure since you went ahead and posted the full-length files. I'll get the second volume finished and upload 'em.

My attempts to upload the chapterized videos here have failed. Most of them are too large for the system to accept, and even those that are small enough error out during the upload. I've created a pasword-locked Photobucket account where I'm in the process of uploading the files, and will post the link and password here when that's completed.

Dennis, I edited out the duplicate Parker 75 segment in volume 2, and took the liberty of editing the reblackening segment so that the instruction sheets for the "potion" are now right-side up.

Files are arranged as follows:

v1c1: Volume I Intro
v1c2: Lever fillers
v1c3: Button fillers
v1c4: Sheaffer Touchdown
v1c5: Parker Vacumatic
v1c6: Highlighting imprints
v1c7: Nib smoothing
v1c8: Closing remarks and credits

v2c1: Volume II Intro
v2c2: Parker 21, 75, & 51 (45 was missing from DVD)
v2c3: Parker 51 cap
v2c4: Parker 61
v2c5: Sheaffer Snorkel
v2c6: Eversharp Skyline
v2c7: Repairing cracked celluloid
v2c8: Celluloid fabrication
v2c9: Reblackening hard rubber pens
v2c10: Repairing damaged nibs
v2c11: Closing remarks and credits

Files are in .WMV format. Each chapter will be described accordingly at Photobucket.

Photobucket converted all the videos to .MP4. The album is located here: http://photobucket.com/lively_vids

The password for access is:

Thanks, Dennis; I just wish Photobucket had told me about the format conversion *before* I spent a couple of hours uploading the files. I could have converted them myself with better results, but PB would probably have recompressed them anyway.

Nice job guys!

Maybe we should pin that link in a new topic under "Workbench" with the password??

Frank, I'd suggest putting both full-length videos and the link to the chapters all in one pinned post. Less clutter that way.

Gentlemen, are the additional videos available to watch. I tried to type in "lively" but was not granted access.
