No, he did not.
Lew "traveled light".
For instance, if you hired Lew to do a front,the first thing you had to do was pay for brushes as he did not carry any.
When he was done and gone,the brushes were usually left with the unused paint.

Lew created a replica of Al Tomaini's boot to replace the original.

Post to Roadside America - Lew Stamm has crafted a stone replica of Alís boot. (The original was destroyed by exposure to the elementsónot to mention a final blow of having its concrete base bashed by a runaway generator which escaped while being towed along Highway 41.)
