All due respect and all, however, I'm sure you're not the first to say that ;-P.


Everything my heart could desire (more or less). . .

Back to business after our brief . . . interlude!!!

 

Just in case anyone needed to know how a Mono arrives:

 

A big strong box appears (after being tracked 14 times en route by DHL and only taking 4 days to arrive)

Upon opening you find The Best Packaging material ever! Well, it was to me because I hadn't ever seen this kind of packing before. It has some kind of thing that, when activated moulds to the product.

And that's about it!

There's a poly bag . . .

Does it require WDT and RDT?? Hardly seems like a step forward if so...

If I may ask.. There seems to be more flats than conicals out there.. When choosing between the 2, was it an easy choice for you all? I am sure it's not the colour that swung votes! And given the price difference, that's not it either.. Is it purely flat vs conical preference?

I think, and I may be wrong, two of us here have conical and two flats, at present. World wide? I couldn't say.

 

Personally, my choice was made for me. It was the last one of anything from this run. Given the choice though I would still have chosen the conical. I'm not saying I wouldn't like a flat too . . .

Wouldn't it be lovely if you could swap them between conics/flats out like AP/BG burrs in sette! (in fantasy world!)
