Posted:what I did before was just cut thread in both sides of the staff, and then glue a headless bolt in one side.

I don't put a capsule over it, because it gets in the way with contact stuff, and if you make sure the thread is just as long as the bolt, the strength that you cut away will be filled with the bolt anyway. so it will be strong again.
and I don't like the staff to be to heavy in the middle, it works better if the weight (and momentum) is at the ends of the staff.

I will NOT make it out of steel. steel conducts heat too much, it will be aluminium because of that. hockeystick grip tape in the middle, wound with waxed thread, to prevent sliding. big wick.

if more people are interested, then maybe I'll build some DIY staffs: everything prepared, you just need to glue and screw it all together.
maybe I'll get a discount this way when I get the tread cut in a bulk.

Posted:PS

the staffs that I am selling now (solid, one piece) are:

1x 150cm long, thick 10cm wick, hockeystick griptape - 30 euro.
2x 80cm long, thick 6cm wick, tennis griptape - 40 euro for the pair.

that is what I payed myself for the materials to make them, it's up to you if you think me making them is worth something too. oh, and moondance just PM-ed me, so she already has first option down on them.

Posted:From the station, you take bus 6 to hooggraven, or bus 8 to Lunette(n). Then you get out at Tolsteegplantsoen. There you will see the park where we will be spinning. And if were not there, will be inside with Mot.

Posted:Hi you dutch spinners biggrin
thanks for last friday's meet .. that was great, even though a bit windy smile
Hey MyLord Berend I've just checked your site "warrior of light" .. nice work dude !! ... and stop calling me "monseigneur" .. it sucks and sounds middleage -ish
I've digitalized the video I shoot last friday, it's about 100Mb compressed in wmv.
How shall we handle this ... as I don't have anymore space to host the video (as it's all taken by mine ;-)
Do you guys have this ... or shall we do it middleage-ish .. using snail-mail

Posted:Heya all,

I will keep my vocabulary 21st century like this time ubbangel, but nothing wrong with the middle ages peace

But thnx for the compliment about my site! the host sucks though, but it has to do for now...



And the video 100 mb in WMV?!?! Dude.... Divx doesn't give a better result?

Anyhow, you can sent it to an email adres of me, verybigbrownbear@spymac.com. I don't use it anymore, except for transferring ridiculously large files smile... All you have to do is mail it, and then i'll put the password online, so everyone can download it smile...



Unless Tom got 100 Mb more webspace, but I guess not...



Grtz,

Telpeva*



ps and what the *&#%@!*^# is snail mail ^_^ ???

pps I'll be unreachable for a few hours... Gonna have some Formatting Fun...

Posted:I've had a quick flick through the forum - do you have any meets in Amsterdam. I'll be over for a few days in March for my boyfriends birthday and will probably go mad staring at the same four walls in the same coffeehouse quite quickly. Wondered if i couold come and meet some other spinners for the afternoon/evening and relieve my bordem/maddness.

I will be there from the 14th March until the 17th.

Posted:We can do a meet in adam in march, no problem. Give us a few dates closer to the time and we can sort out something.

I can host a few vids if you want, 100mb sounds somewhat huge though. How long is it? We can try a few things though. Firstly you could just slap it on a cd and mail it to me biggrin probably the fastest biggrin
Or transfer it via msn it's all possible.
