    Yes a Sierra

    Hi all,
    It's been a loooong time since I did a Sierra as I much prefer the Sirocco now.... But customer request was for this, so I don't argue.... IMG_20211102_141728.jpg

    I only open my mouth...to change feet...

    Well done for breaking the mould.

    Great finish as usual.

    Looks good, but I don’t like the “soft touch” dibber on the end of this model.

    It was the dibber they wanted more than style

    Very nice

    Did you get a colour choice with the dibber?
    A nice florescent dibber on an acrylic would be good

    Actually Mark.
    If the customer requires the dibber, the Sirocco can’t compete (although a nicer pen) in my opinion.

    The stylus were very popular three years ago but people have discovered their fingers are attached to their hands and they don’t sell much now. Yes, they are available in around seven colours and are all equally less useful than a finger. I have heaps of the wretched things!
    There is hardly anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and the people who consider price alone are this man's lawful prey. (John Ruskin 1819-1900)

    Gosh. There's a blast from the past. One of the good ol' original designs of kits from back in the day. I was always very grateful for that double beaded part just under the finial when I first started pen turning. It was very forgiving if you, err, "missed the target" on the lathe I seem to remember

    Looks great with the oak Mark
