Topic: Thimble selection
Message: Posted by: onebark (Jan 14, 2005 12:41PM)
I would like some feedback on the various thimble designs (I own the smaller Mogar type). I would like to purchase some Vernet style thimbles, but I wonder if there is enough roughage to provide a decent grip. Is this a factor in Vernet thimble selection? It would be great to have a thimble that nests AND has a good grip.

Go to http://www.porperoriginals.com and look for his thimbles. They nest and are beautifully machined in brass.

Delicious! Perfect! Exactly the design I was looking for!

I wonder, though, what kind of visibility they may have to a larger group? Do you think the brass could be washed out for the back row spectators? Hmmm. I'll have to think this purchase over.

See if he can powder coat them in white.
