Re: Piper in The Crown Season 4

Re: Groped by women when performing?

Both! Several times!

When caught, I've simply told the offending female that she could be arrested, just as I could if the tables were turned. They usually just laugh it off, and toss down...

As far as Bagtight, it has nothing to do with where pipes are made, but everything to do with the bag to which the sticks are tied. ...

Re: Polyester thread replacing hemp?

I used three strands of poly thread at a time, which meant I could bear down on the tension and really pack it on tight. I also used a cordless variable speed drill. Wrap one end of a drill bit...

'Like' button

Other forums I frequent have 'like' buttons, where a person who agrees with the sentiments expressed by another forumite can 'click' to say they agree.

Just curious, why not here?

Re: What reaction do you get when playing in public?

Back to the point, the only time I play solo in public is at a memorial or funeral, and even then, it's not really public. It's at a cemetery, and there aren't many passers by.

Re: Hemping stock joints

If a little is good, then a lot is better.

Re: Bag Cover - loose or tight?

If you err on one side or the other, make it a little larger in diameter. If you like it, keep it. If you want it tighter, you can always sew a dart lengthwise, and make it smaller around.
