I can't say for certain on any of these, but I can hazard some (hopefully) educated guesses.

I doubt they'd have a problem with the pliers, but any cutters might be an issue, so have plenty of ring ...

No, I won't be able to ship it in a spool, unfortunately. If you buy the raw wire, it'll be in a loose "coil". So... I encourage people to tell me what ID coils they want and I'll do that since I ha ...

Well, nevermind. It's already been shipped home, at this point.

Hasn't exactly led to a decrease in my bad habits... but I've noticed I can't maille after I smoke because it makes my hands shake. Drinking on the other hand is nice for repetitive work with hard me ...

I just finished a hp3in1sheet6 bikinitop out of 2 triangles (or actually every triangle consists of 2 triangles). Half of it is woven from left to right, the other half from right to left. The two tri ...

This is a test I've wanted to perform for some time, I'll just never have the resources.

If I may suggest, test different weaves against different forms of attack. It would be very interesting to ...
