Re: A 47 years old love

Hi Frank, Great job. Just don't get caught with the Frau's best tweezers as a marlinspike. FWIW I have had success simply burning out the fibre core (polypropylene?) of lengths of 5mm rope.

Re: In memory of Gill Watkins

Shocking and saddest of news. My condolences to Mark and their family. Gill had that rare gift of making everyone she was talking to feel that they were valued. Looking back to the early days of Armortek in Daventry, it was clear that Mark and Gill together were starting something very unusual becau...

Re: My Beaut Aussie Cent

Stephen, A very nice finishing touch! Is the material nickel-silver aka german silver? I have been interested in using it instead of brass for a while. Can you experiment on the unused frets and report back if it can be annealed to soften for bending? Appreciate you would not want to blowtorch the a...
