Hi Jack!
I was wondering if there's anyway to get some of your strings to Europe? (and specially France and me...)
Any paypal account or something like that we could exchange by PM?
I want to start making my own rope someday but for now, and until I get everything in order of work, I would like to test some other's realisations...
It would be great to make a "big package" of them, that way I will be able to share/trade with spinners around me... (essentially french and czech guys)

Anyway your work looks great!!

I just finished making string for my Grandson, and my tops. Almost all different diameters.

Small tops are Spintastic Granda, Duncan Ripcord, and Spintastic Gladiator. All will do DOUBLE BODY CORK SCREWS.

I learned so much about the different shapes of top using the Nefty String maker. I broke the long yellow rod so I took a black delrin rod and filed two groves in it - works great. Then I fixed the yellow broken one with C.A and kite rods.

Jack let's talk about making a six point driver with knex parts. Or another problem like when you mix colors on the same post you cant get the same pattern down the whole line?
