    Finally finished this frame! This is my Menace design which I prototyped sometime last year out of HDPE.
    This time around I wanted something more high end so I went for a 3mm brass core with 6mm toxic orange kirinite pinned with 6mm brass pins including a mosaic pin in the centre.
    The brass core was hard work cuttung and shaping armed only with fairly basic tools but I love the extra weight of it. Never really worked with kirinite before but I must say its brilliant! As you work through the grits during the finishing process the surface becomes glass smooth but not at all slippery, it's brilliant!
    Anyway, enough of me waffling on!
    Have a look for yourselves and tell me what you think.
