  • It's a sad day....


    I guess 100 years or so of hitting really can take it's toll. My beautiful Nicol's No. 337 swivel broke on me during my workout the other day...bummer!

    ...now the search is on to fix this baby.

    My condolences.
    Dee's brass ball and hook would look great in there if it fits!

          ...the brass ball is to small for those swivels, besides that the softer brass would get chewed up. Hey zaza maybe you can see if the old rope swivel's ball that I sent you would work in that swivel, the ball should be the same size if I remember and just add a new rope to the ball

            ZA,
            Seriously, why didn't you just e-mail me? I have that swiv plus a couple of other ones. I'm on it and, I will make that swiv a better one! I'v had plans in my head since I purchased my own Nichols. I just don't have a platform worthy of hanging it on. Your swiv, is the ball shot or can you reuse? Is the... I'll just call. I would appreciate the opportunity.

                Let me just say that Tommy T is AWESOME! He is going to fix me right up...a true brother of the bag. Thank you Tommy.

                ...and thank for all the kind comments, but she will live again!

                    So, it's been awhile (kind of busy with the film and all)... but now.... she's back!
                    Special thanks to the amazing Tommy T, who built a retro-fit shackle that has brought my vintage Nicol's swivel back from the dead. I like to call it my "Tommy T Zom B" swivel!




                    Thank you Tommy, my speed bag brother! It's SO nice to have the sound of this swivel ringing again.

                        Just spent 2 hours beating this baby into submission...what a blast. Love this swivel! Thanks again Tommy for the fix.

                              Tommy is a master craftsman with metal. Haven't found anything he can't build or fix. Not too shabby with wood, either!
