 :D
Cuper has his own way of writing (ask Neff about the group order of the Cuper 360's . . .). Here is the translation:


Quote

"Good morning. The aluminum Cuper 360s I manufactured them using a CNC.  Cecil, very interesting the information about your programmer son, I would like to contact you both. Greetings to the forum. Cuper."

This is one of those 45 minute tips. The top is the Purple Heart hallow, it weighs 13 OZ. Purple Heart is very heavy. It cuts great and likes a good polish. So this is my fa-rite looking top. I just wish it was 12 OZ.
And I have a new camera man. He is only 10 but he loves Trompos, and he is learning fast. I will put his video up as soon as I get his Mom's permission. I just wanted  to make a quick video and show what the top can do.

I live in San Jose, California. When I was in Junior High School I took a wood shop. I never thought I would be interested in cutting wood. Nice suprise. I know of only one school that has a wood shop. I guess in the silicon valley a good trade doe's not mean anything anymore. I would like to show up at a wood shop and show the kids the tops I've made. Why make a wood bowl when you can make a Trompo? And has anyone found out where to buy the 3 1/2 plastic for the fighting tops?

I'm going to make a fighter out of the ugly one. And the round poplar I bought for $16.00 including shipping.But it is wet wood. I guess I have to Waite five years before I cut it. When I bought it I did not see the wet wood posting. And the round poplar weighs one pound eight ounces.
