OK - the ONLY thing I don't love about the Elektra are the Bakalite handles. So I need an offlist with Mr. Les about Thor Tampers and Handles. John - going broke quickly now
Sometimes, Les is more ...

John, I would love to make your new handle! I have a customer in Penn who had me turn a new finial for the top too she didn't like the eagle! Next she is getting a matching tamper and handle. I have done a number of these! Contact me off list! Les On Mon, 8 Nov 2004 01:35:33 -0600, Wandering John wrote: <Snip>

I don't know. I sent it back after getting some measurements. Les On Mon, 08 Nov 2004 10:44:21 -0500, Ben Treichel wrote: <Snip>
They make a beautiful glass dome for the Elektra - but I have never seen a place that offered a choice. I like the eagle and have a couple of others in the house already. I'll do a full sized brag when I place my order... sometime soon I hope. John - loving life in the slow land. On Mon, 8 Nov 2004 22:23:46 -0800, Les wrote: <Snip>

I wanted to get handles but I can't seem to remove the current handles - feels like they Crazy-Glued them or sumthin' :-( Dejected DJ
<Snip> Wow! My Thor tamper is beautiful...but yours is...mysterious. Gene Smith riding the wild learning curve, in Houston
Sometimes they are really tough to get off. The threads are on the handle, so make sure you are turning the right way. Les On Tue, 9 Nov 2004 18:58:55 -0500, DJ Garcia wrote: <Snip>
Yes, like the Sphinx, it's Terribly Mysterious ...
