    my cousin has been asking me for years if I want him to build me a slide. Well today is the day. He's a metal worker and he's going to build me a few different models to check weight, size, etc. I'm pretty excited. He's even gonna get some anodized. I will post pics as soon as they come to me.

    Hey Eric, your cousin is a tool maker now! Sounds like this will be fun.

    well - he's always done odd jobs in his dad's metal shop for extra cash and he's always asking me about a slide. Well - last night we talked about measurements and whatnot.... can't wait to check them out.

    I hear George Thuroogood makes hes own from copper pipe. He then roughs them up a bit, so they scratch against the strings more. Might be something you would wan to consider!

    Can't wait to see em.
