    First of all, are any Arc swivels in use today not pristine? If so, I would like to know about it and figure out if there are design defects. The oldest ones are only 6 months in the field, and I had hoped the important parts would stay pristine longer.

    Secondly, I ran out of some of the raw components to make more swivels, and I'm not sure the demand is there to justify buying more of them yet. I would need to front about $200 in materials, and then incur a costs for each one purchased because I donate 100% of the purchase price to my charity.

    The way the math works out, if I would only sell a handful more Arcs, it would be better for my charity if I just donate my front money and be done with it.

    I am keeping a list of people who express interest in getting an Arc, and if it makes sense to go back into production, I will. There are no tricks or monkey business going on here, it is all about the puppies.

    So.. if one wanted to purchase a backup swivel to keep pristine in the box should it ever be needed, that person would just PM you and do things the paypal way?

    Due to some technical problems with my fabrication equipment, I may have to suspend sales of the Arc swivel very soon. Just wanted to give some fair warning, in case somebody really really really wanted one but for some reason didn't pull the trigger on buying it yet.

    Ha, Ha! No.. those are the bolts that hold the platform to the arms.

    This is my hobby, and I am not trying to make a profit. I want to share the results of my hobby with all the speed baggers here, and maybe in the process of doing that I can help out a charity that is near to my heart.

    So as far as "buying" a swivel, yes you have to pay me, but the money you pay is automatically transfered out of my account and then over to my charity without my ever getting involved. The money goes into my Paypal account and then gets transfered out a few weeks later. That is the way eBay for Charity auctions work, and how PayPal Giving fund handles the money.

    As I am not really selling swivels, and I am not a store or a business, I offer no warranty or gaurantee of any kind, and further more buyers assume all risk for using something I made by hand for anything other than getting it and saying 'Gee, that thing looks pretty.' If you get it and think it doesn't look pretty, ok, then send me a PM and I can refund you. If you punch it and it bonks you in the head (or worse), well that is on you.

    So, if you want to get a nice looking hand made thing for around $40, and if you don't mind your money being donated to a charity for dogs, then by all means, please get one of these dandy little bastards.

    It's an awesome swivel. and I'm glad to see swivels start going to the "Dogs"
    it's a great effort!

    And the best part is ...during your speed bag work out - you can paws for cause....



    Yeah, I said it.

    That's ok, eh. The holy trinity is much too polite to have you deported.

    Zaza, I was gonna keep people guessing for a while on the music. I didn't think anyone would figure it out. People who are not really into Rush would never recognize their later work.

    Contrast Zaza's vid to this classic one, same band, same bag, evolution upgrades...
