    Default X Marks The Spot 4

    Looks who's back with more word fun!

    Complete the equation ~

    X + not all
    X + scarf
    porch + X
    cultivate + X
    X + composing
    X + smack
    links warning + X
    sponsor + X
    X + jump
    X + virgin
    beneath + X
    fleeting + X
    X + speedy
    X + away
    dais + X
    silver + X
    X + rev
    X + not at work

    Helpful Info If You Need It:
    Spoiler:
    1) X is the same value in all equations.
    2) If the equations included "X + cutting implement" and "leaping + X", you might conclude the answers were "Jack Knife" and "Jumping Jack", where X = Jack
    3) X does not = Jack in the puzzle above.

    The answer is....
    "A real limited edition, far from being an expensive autograph stapled to a novel, is a treasure. And like all treasures do, it transforms the responsible owner into a caretaker, and being a caretaker of something as fragile and easily destroyed as ideas and images is not a bad thing but a good one...and so is the re-evaluation of what books are and what they do that necessarily follows." - Stephen King

    Almost stroppy!

    These are still outstanding for what I was looking for...

    X + smack
    Sponsor + X
    X + rev

    Stroppy has them all, but since they are in spoiler tags, does anyone else wish to try?

    Spoiler:

    Sponsor + X = Backhand - To Sponsor something would be too "Back" it
    X + rev = Handgun - If you rev an engine, it is sometimes known as "Gunning" It (That one took me a while )
