    Hello friends, I present this gapper by freehand, it is not completely symmetric but my hand is either and both seem to get along, it was not my intention but apparently my subconsit added a national detail in the month of Mexican independence :)

      Thanks, the finish is acrylic enamel in a spray can, first rubbed so that the wood absorbs it then a light sanding and two coats sprayed for a glossy finish

      I wish USA coins looked that interesting. Dimes, Nickels, and Quarters are pretty boring compared to other countries.

      Thanks Brother, the circular tips can hold bands 50% wider than a flat/square tip of the same magnitude :bw:

      Maybe folks trading or shipping abroad, could include some coins from their country In with the Slingmail ?
      ( I guess that’s legal ? [emoji848])
