I have also ordered a set. I don't think Win knew what he was getting into!

I've also ordered a set. When I contacted Win on Mar. 10th he told me he had had 8 orders in just the previous 2 days and the lead time was going to be 6 weeks.

I just checked my set and it can easily accept a lacrosse ball as a final load but not the baseball I have around. The baseball I have is of dubious regulation size so who knows.

Great cups. Impressive tin-smithing work.

I was just notified that my cups are finished. Two weeks earlier than he said when I ordered them. How often do we see that these days? I also noticed that Bills are there waiting for him too, so Win is making his way through the orders.

Thanks! I need to check that out.

=================================

I hadn't heard anything from Win, which doesn't surprise me, because I have been flooded with spam lately, and I may have missed his e-mail. At least they had not been up for very long, just four hours.

I'll pick up a tennis ball and give it a try.

Glad Win is starting to get these out to you guys. He has some other really nice sconces and candle holders I may pickup next time I place an order.

Excellent craftmanship!
Not many tinsmiths around these days.
Life is too important to take seriously.

My cups are ready! Just paid for them and can't wait to see them up close.

I ordered my set with the antique finish and I am really pleased with how they look.

Todd, thanks again for sharing Win's info with us.

Best,

Doug

"Tin" is a sheet of steel that has a coating of tin on it. If the tin doesn't wear off, it usually won't tarnish.

Another question:

In the period (19th century I believe) these cups were popularly used, what did they use as standard and final loads?
