They are very nice, but phosphor bronze? are you a millionaire?………..seriously tho, they are great!

Prefer the aged copper, just MHO…I'm assuming you now have a lathe? I have a VERY tired Atlas Craftsman which is older than me, that is surprisingly useful for things that don't need great accuracy…...

The bronze is a piece I bought recently and wasn't expensive.Yes I have a 1920's Rel Minor lathe I got just recently and its great.Oldie but a goody so they say:)

This is a bronze lantern in the making,i will insert a trit in it when it arrives.This is my first and will change the design on the next and future lanterns.


This one is a bronze hammered paracord bead ive left to soak in liver of sulphur overnight.

sunndog,
I like your "Para phrases" for all things paracord crafting "a black belt in paracord twizzling", "incomprehensible paracord kung fu"

Im with you all the way on that one.

Its looking quite apparant that there is no way a hobby maker can compete with the CNC machine guys. From here on im just going to ake beads and lanterns for a hobby so if anyone wants any they will all be available cheaper on Instagram to clear them.i only have one lantern but a few beads and some key tags.all solid copper.

Could any of these be turned down a bit thinner before before being peined ? I could do with three for my beard to hold my plaits at our hand fasting ceremony in a couple of weeks. .....
