    Eebees why four pointer particularly? What are you making?
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!

    Rushy, I am making thumbsticks for a couple of people and the brows and long tines on the fours are close enough to the coronet to give a good sized diameter to work with...it is not so much the tines but the diameter so to speak...the diameter I work with is a staff generally 22 to 25mm diameter. A nice v is required but any timber with that sort of diameter would be cool. I need new antlers or at least last years with the nice pearling etc.

    What exactly is a thumb stick? I have a lot of antler here and may have something that suits. I haven't taken the antler off my spikers this year but could easily enough if there was something there that suited.

    OK so that would be why she only wants the brow and shaft. The bez tine would stuff it all up. I will look tomorrow but not sure I will have any.

    Yeh I agree with that philosophy. The only reason I have so much hanging around is the animals on the farm.

    If you could post a picture of what you require EeeBees would be helpful. Im a bit like Rushy and VC. I have wild and domestic heads which may be useful. But if you require the coronet then the farm one will be of no use.

    Good point 7mmwsm. All that I have would be without coronet.

    Here's a poor rendition of what it all should look like???!!!!




    Dont need the coronet unless you use it upside down so that the coronet becomes the thumb pad so to speak...they are useful for embedding compasses if anyone ever wanted one like that.
    Thank you.
