Those are three horrible sentences. Terrible. There will be no update. You can all thank Mr. Thom.

That last sentence really needs an ellipsis somewhere.

Yes, they will all be cut from plateux. And yes, they are a steal at that price :-)

Beautifully done, Brian!

Let's start seeing some serious orders, now that the prototype is here.
The terms are $130/pipe plus $10 shipping from Denmark. At least 50% pre-paid with order.

The following have already expressed interest:

Mountainman
ReverendThom
mustang
Al_S_
Pepik (ordering 2 pipes)

So... six of the 14 blocks have dibs.

And since one or two of those blocks might have a horrendous flaw or sand pit hidden inside, be quick to jump on the list!

Ok, boys. Mr. Madsen will now tell you how to order and when his cutoff date is. Be generous. Support our own. Make us proud.

And the craftsman assures us that he can get more blocks. So place your orders!
