    SOLD:Discounted Elephant Trunks

    Occasionally there is some fall out during the manufacture process and I have a few sets of trunks that I deem unacceptable to sell at full price due to their appearance. They are still fully functional but they don't look as nice. I still produced them as if they were with fully rounding the hook to help reduce wear on the whoopie and they were tumbled and polished but I can't remove the cosmetic issues. All of them have a 'good' side and a 'blemished' side and this is due to 'hop' from cutting on the waterjet. Sometimes when the waterjet is cutting and the jet is exiting the material on the bottom side it's greeted by the slats underneath which supports the work material. when this happens you get some spray out which could be redirected back into the work material causing pitting, that is what has happened with these.

    i'm asking $11 shipped which is $5 off from the normal and $8 off from what the original price was.

    I've got 4 sets at this current price and that's it for now.

    Set 1



    Set 2



    Set 3



    Set 4




    I think the easiest would be to just claim which set you want in thread then PM to confirm they are still available prior to payment through paypal. Once there gone I'll ask the thread to be closed.


    Take care,

    Patrick
