A terrific gesture WM+
I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete.

Thank you Mark :Thumb:

Now, if forum member would like one, would you please indicate whether you would prefer copper or brass and then PM me with your name and postal address and I will get them in production as soon as I can.

However, whilst buying 16mm brass bar is not too much of a problem, copper bar is expensive so the only further ones to be made will be from my existing stock of material..

Those Gentlemen who have already indicated, will get copper ones, after that it has to be first come, first served..

Please make your own arrangements with Mark for donation after you receive your plummet..and Thank you all in advance. :Hat:

A step-by-step would be great. It's always good to see how you make stuff.

Speaking of which, I went to one of your previous posts on making a traditional net and found the mercenary action of Photobucket have destroyed all the accompanying photos. Is there any chance you can add/edit the photos again when you have the opportunity ? Don't want you to hold up the plummet production line :Chuckle:

The Jiffy mailing bags arrived with this morning's post and I can tell you that your plummet is now on it's way to you...

I did a list of everyone who wanted one and you should be receiving yours within a day or so..

If I have inadvertently left anyone out, please send a PM..

All my stock of suitable copper has now been used up, but there may be another run of brass ones at a future date.

Thank you all for supporting the forum with your donations.. :Hat:

Kind regards,
