    It's Asian striking red it's cost the same as the blue the blues is a lot easier to coil onto a blank though and I probably should slow down some it was taking me like and hour at first to make one now it's like 30 min I probably shouldn't be worried about speed yet

    bro. bring them to a shop thats kinda far from your house.... this way if you "embarrass" yourself it doesnt matter going fwd. also just sell them stupid cheap. if it smokes... someone will buy it for a couple bucks anyway.

    i saved ALL of my crap first spoons and chillys for concerts. sell them for 5 bucks in the lot. pays your beer tab at the show. plus if we are going somewhere. bring the piece. smoke it till ur done. throw it out if you cant bring it with you.

    Nice looking tools! Most reamers are octagon shaped, I’m interested to hear how your round ones perform.
    I do what I know, I don't know what I'm doing
