Interest Check in a COY 2019

Post by JohnnyMcPiperson » Wed Jan 23, 2019 5:52 am

I was actually looking into this home laser engraver thinking, well if I use this project to get it, I could engrave future POY if it works well, the stamps aren’t as clean and uniform as engraving, but definitely cheaper and more portable to go between various makers.

As for the COY, I’m going to shelve it for the time being, doesn’t seem like enough people are interested in an actual CPS cob to make it worth the time and energy/clam shells.

As for the stamp vs engraver/ getting one for future use, sounds like a good idea for another thread.

Goats approve of things by eating them, not stamping them. Therefore, each COY 2019 will be eaten by a goat.

I own one of these. It works ok, especially for the price point. Not super fine, but pretty impressive.

I’m still stunned that you people couldn’t successfully purchase the required quantity of cob pipes and then ship them them out to people that had paid you for them.

There's a young lady in Alabama who has a Facebook page called “Candy's Artistic Cobs”. She takes commissions to hand paint designs on the cob pipe of your choice, and some of her work looks really good. I've thought about having her make me a Grateful Dead themed cob.

So I figure we should send her a picture of Poink and have her make us some cobs with him on them, and that can be the COY 2019

I tend to find the doctrinal books often more helpful in devotion than the devotional books.... I believe that many who find that "nothing happens" when they sit down, or kneel down, to a book of devotion, would find that the heart sings unbidden while they are working their way through a rough bit of theology with a pipe in their teeth and a pencil in their hand.

I just haven’t decided what I want to do yet, my first idea got vetoed in the name of a cob “to fancy” my second idea required a minimum purchase of 100, and my third idea is out of stock currently, we will make it happen, the year is early, we are in the R&D stage.
