    Strangely enough, I have (on the advice I have been given here) just signed up to instagram, and have already two followers.

    Just make sure you’re a positive influence, an example not a warning! ^_^

    Do comments left on your blog get posted automatically or do you screen them?

    I wanted to suggest gently and friendlily that your understanding of double and triple butting wasn’t precisely the same as mine, but to do so without my pedantry being plastered all over the web for the whole world to see.

    Oh, hang on a tick....

    I have no idea, but try it and see Mr Swanson. I was trying to dumb it down to make it understandable, but may have lost the plot entirely in translation.

    All polite comments (as I'm sure yours would of course be) are very welcome. butting3.jpg

    I actually got very close to mentioning Tange as a brand to look out for when waxing lyrical about 4130. Perhaps a future blog entry there?

    And don't forget ishiwata or dedacciai both do very good tube sets and are often overlooked

    Plain, single and double on that diagram are as I understand them, but I thought triple was like double but with different thicknesses at the ends, so three thicknesses in total used once each. The arrangement in that diagram is probably more logical though.

    My real issue though was that your wording seemed to imply two (double) or three (triple) changes going each way from the middle - one more than I think we both think there actually is. But that would be so pedantic a thing to feel necessary to point out that the person doing so would rightly open themselves to ridicule and contempt.

    Be as pedantic as you like! As long as it's polite and comstructive I can take it ;)

    Inconsistent use of capital letters in the captions.
