    Oh boy, I couldn't wait to share this with you guys! I present...the Steamplinker! My last build of 2016.

    In short: brass core, brass linings, brass screws, brass pins, brass tubing, brass gears, brass maker's mark, brass Ocularis plug balls and brass inlays. Black and purple G10 body and spacers. Brown ebony, purpleheart and black micarta pinky swell.

    Sanded to 12,000 (micromesh) and finished with a lick of mineral oil.

    I tweaked the design a bit to be OTT only with a groove for tube singles and a slightly convex tip for flats.

    I know I am cheating when but I really don't want re-write the process:

    Thanks for looking SSC!
