    Scott:

    Those look good enough to eat.
    Trouble is I can't make up my mind between the dark chocolate, milk chocolate, or butter cream!

    from our photographer/salesperson
    "they look like yummy cookies!! LOL"
    Rethinking to calling them "Beaver treats" or "Ultimate fibre treats"
    "Wookies" might be great for Vegans.
    Means a lot from you Dave!

    Hey Scott,

    I know that the 1.25" one won't, but not sure about a smaller diameter one. I have a 0.75" one, but don't use it much and can't remember how much it doesn't cut in the center. Not near the shop to look at it at the moment. They do leave a good size nib uncut in the center and can't be plunged much more than 0.1".

    Quite nice Scott.. if you want to bump the class up a little on the chain set up for less money let me know. I use a brass v clip and a brass key ring. total cost on my set up about 30 cents. Will set you up with the company I buy wholesale from.

    Thanks Eugene,
    Can you e-mail me the info if it's American made?
    Went stainless as it's a Yachting town, and Carabiner as my Mom at 84 has problems adding a key to split ring style(Dad is worse at 87) and I was rock climber so love 'biners.
    Brass would work well if I could see it and it wasn't plated.
    Say hi to Tina, and sorry about your Uncle
    Take care,
    scott

    Oh, .5"BN for scalloped edge and countersunk button holes.
    Slowest part was the reduced Plunge speed on the font to prevent tearout in Cherry.
    NOT my first choice wood choice for tiny font, or an oil finish because of bleeding in the beginning of summer temps.
    Color is still coming into wood, and reverse side is 2-3 shades lighter.
    The lighter buttons just need a little more sun, but will never be as dark as the full heartwood blank I used for 18 of them.
