Don, just a heads up: you've got a ton of new Tomenosuke owners incoming, and you're going to be looking at an awful lot of people interested in your barrel.


That's me ! Very Happy Don was kind enough to start the third run.

OK guys there has been enough interest in these to warrant getting some new tooling . For those that still want a cylinder PM me and I'll put you down for one.


Thanks, Don ! You making my dreams come true.

I just want to say thank you to Don for doing yet another run of these.

I really appreciate your work and efforts in churning these out for all of us.

Don, I sent you a PM, but since I'm new here, I'm not 100% sure you got it... ha. It's in my "outbox" but not my "sent" items... in any case! I'm here and I'm ready to pay when you are ready for me Smile And thanks so much!

Hi Don,

I received your two new steel cylinders (pre-blued). Many thanks.

But what is this red dusty stuff within the cylinder? Rust?

How would I get rid of the red stuff?

Yes . What hell did they do to them throw them in salt water? Try wiping them down in gun oil. If that doesn't work I'll have to make more. Christ this is pissing me off . I guess I'm going to have to get on a fricken plane and deliver the damned things myself since no one else is competent enough to do it. I just got an email from gprops as well and his has been in transit for over a week and it's just going from Colorado to California.

OK,

I will give it a try and let you know.

The package was unharmed though and it didn't get wet or anything.
Was there something in the package material maybe?
Or could it be because of the bluing?

Were both cylinders like this or just this one? Remember too that one cylinder got lost several months ago and if only one cylinder was in the package then it's probably that cylinder and that would be why it's rusted, its been sitting in a damp post office for months. I just want to understand what happened so this doesn't happen again.

Hi Don,

this is the recent package (for which you gave me tracking number).
Both cylinders are afflicted.
The package itself looked unharmed. Maybe the rusting is due to the packaging paper the cylinders were wrapped in or something went wrong the bluing.

The cylinders I got from you previously had no traces of rust.

I put one of the rusted cylinders into a gun oil bath but I doubt that thsi will help much.

My cylinder made it in today and had it swapped out in just a few minutes. Thanks again, Don. The cylinder really adds that extra real-deal-feel Smile
