    But man, 100 bucks. Plus shipping. Plus custom duties. Plus tax. Plus whatnot.

    Hello,

    uhm, hmja, it's a mechanical tool that works with friction. Isn't it beautiful?

    Careful you don't get splinters.

    Hello,

    shouldn't happen, it's polished. They have the same model made from buffalo horn. But I like the wooden ones best.

    Why don't you just get a plastic one? Some of them even come with batteries and vibrate.

    Hello,

    because plastic ones aren't nearly as nice as this one. Maybe I get an additional one made of plastic. Then I could use it instead of the wooden one and don't have to cry if I lose it in the woods or scratch it accidentally.


    Batteries :eek:?

    Oooooh, I've never seen one like this! It is beautiful and different :D
    So different that I didn't even recognize it :)))
     
  9. I'm not into anal plugs but a nice slightly curved one would be wonderful.

    Oh and plastic does NOT enter my body ever!!

    I think I'd rather stab myself in the leg.

    Hello,

    ;) Indeed, usually you get them as plain brass tubes with a wooden knob. They work, but aren't beautiful.

    I even thought about building one myself. But I think I would need years to build one that is as pretty as the shown one. Hmm.

    Hello,

    they even sell kits:

    They are cheaper and you can rework and finish the exterior to your own ideas.

    Ah, it took me a minute, but now I realize what it is. That's pretty nifty.

    Hello,

    ;) With the set of parts one could build one or two other interesting things, too.

    Regards

  16. I'm not a fan of anything in my ass.

    But I think I could really enjoy a nice wooden toy. I found glass toys are too cold and hard. Aa friend of mine gave me a surgical steel one but it was too un-natural feeling.

    I think wood might be a nice comprimise

    Is everyone super turned on by a plum bob? Maybe the trades are for everyone.

    doesn't exactly look like anything that would be all that difficult to make.

    i can think of a lot of things more useful for that price i'd rather have.

    there isn't very much i'm interested in that isn't either less then $50 or more then $1k. model railway locomotives and power supplies are within that range, but not too many other things fall within it.

    its a pretty piece of turned wood. three pieces actually and a bit of string. and like all things, undoubtedly it can be put to multiple uses. but i really don't see $100 worth of value in it.

    I want one to display on my coffee table for my next dinner party.

    Conversation pieces are great. :)

    I made a table lamp that looks similar.
    I had a few lessons on a lathe (so that I didn't take my arms off) and just played around for a day or two.
    It wasn't that difficult.
