No matter how long I have been carving and making canes and sticks there are those times when it is hard to get it right. I have mounted hames handles on a 100 canes over the years. I have a diamond willow stick with a wide diamond on the top. I have spent a number of hours working to get the right angle for the haymes to fit and preserving the large diamond. I would fix one area and be off on another. I finely walked a way for a few days. I finely look inside the hames with a flash light. Then realized it was a bump on the inside of the hames from its casting of the brass. It was hard to see in the shadows. I rubbed the inside of the hames with chalk ( I should have done that hours ago) letting me see where the problem area was hitting the stick. Should have it fitted today. Forgetting a simple step like using the chalk cost me time and a lot of peace of mind!!!

Thanks for the great idea! I've been considering the SgtGrit brass hame with an EGA for a stick for a long time. Last time I checked their vendor wouldn't sell one without the stick attached, and so I haven't purchased one. I'll keep pestering them.
