    That presumably would be the same Tony Tigg who does all the setting for Jinks MacGrath's Rings book? Looks like a good selection of settings to learn.

    Gypsy and flush are often used interchangeably; my understand of calibre is that it's what I'd call channel setting, so there's 2 of the ones you mentioned!
    I really need to find the time to practice cut down setting...

    I didn't know that Peter. I've got that book, so I'll be having a look to see what I can expect.

    Fab! We'll have a great time. As for the sofa, it's all mine.

    Nobody laughed (publically!) when I showed my efforts
    As for the tools, I'm not sure that I've got anything useful left - but I did see Cooksons had a few gravers at half price in the sale.

    Flame off, sounds like fun for you George )

    I'll be lucky if I get a straight line, I will be so nervous lol.

    Forgot about the sales, thanks for the reminder.

    Typical! None of the things we need are in Cookies sale. I've got a few gravers but I don't know what numbers they are, so I suppose I'd better fork out for more. Trouble is that everyone uses different names for them. This is the list. Can anyone throw any light on different names?

    No 21 Bull Stick
    No 2 Spitz Sticks
    No 12 Flat Scorpers
    No 6 Half Round Scorpers
    No 10 Half Round Scorpers
    Six round wwoden handles. The 6th one is used to make a pushing tool for rub over settings
