    I'm pretty much fed up

    oh look I can make a e-pipe, Jesus easy isn't it, oh god yes, a piece of piss, joy..... a+b = C really stu............ no not at all

    you spend £150 on resin and you put too much to mix in the container so you pour it back into the bottle except you pick the wrong one up its the catalyst you've dumped it in so bang £150 shot gone

    you get a delivery of parts you've got to buy in bulk due to cost to pass on half are faulty or the wrong thread size by 0.25 of a pitch all shot gone

    shall I carry on......


    dvd?

    the birds

    Cathy Brenner: He's got a client who shot his wife in the head six times. Six times, can you imagine it? I mean, even twice would be overdoing it, don't you think?


    so some drilling the first sultan had a hammer swiped straight through him bang it wasn't right

    IMG_7456.jpg

    I've had to bond a piece on the base to get levels right as I having problems clamping spinning at 3000 rpm is not helping


    IMG_7449.jpg

    polish the atty holder after making

    IMG_7488.jpg

    polish the switch again as its not right

    assemble wire polish and

    IMG_7502.jpg

    stamp on it

    why

    it failed the tests once made there is no going back if it doesn't work or look right being such a small format its scrap if this was a box you just bought from a supplier you just buy a new box or get the board back on RMA they send you a new board being handmade like above if it fails that's 3 days gone 36 hours the resin, the parts, the colour the time gone, wasted.

    so start again

    IMG_7562.jpeg

    so am I happy with Sultan


    IMG_7563.jpeg

    had I big plans with a wooden box and leather strap over the top to look like a gentleman's pipe ...... well yes that was the plan

    IMG_7564.jpeg


    is that an amber stem with a stainless steel 510 insert that will fit all 510 attys click on click off.....it is indeed

    IMG_7565.jpeg

    mod making is awful it's like a disease it steals your mind there is no feedback from me you strife for perfection but you can't get there......there is no perfection

    so sultan sits here next to octopussy

    what I will do, I'm unsure, I've shut down to it hence no in the paw video no on the log pictures, I've pulled out the thorn but its left a scar

    so after all my moaning, look at me poor me etc I'm still making

    a pipe and mod will be coming soon

    love my mods then like them but dont make them.

    You sound like such a tortured poor soul...i wanna hug you..except i'm a bloke! It's beauty as ever Stu....just looking at it wonder how you get them to look like that? Do you use a mould for the resin..or do you actually hand carve (if that's the right term) each piece from scratch?

    Anyway..it's another gorgeous piece Stu......but do please take some time off for yourself, i think you're crying out for a much needed holiday...badly!

    Can I make a suggestion? Don't ever bin the fails. Keep them to learn from them and label them with the mistake that was made. Create a kind of 3d journal for future reference to learn from the mistakes made.

    Looks very in keeping with that style of pipe (just googled them). The amber is spot on.
