I'm interested, as long as they're not pewter. Silver would be my first preference.

I'd buy one, in silver if poss, please. I prefer my fingers pink, as opposed to green.

I, like just about everyone else here, it seems, would be quite interested in one of these.

can you make one in wax with sprues attached? so we can all try our hand at casting our own in our choice of materials. (polimer clay, resin, silver, gold, pewter, brass, ceramic, enamal, ...)

After seeing the prototype in the flesh (so to speak) this weekend, I too would like one in brass if at all possible.

Maybe I missed it, but has a price been set on these yet?

No, but personally I would pay anything up to and including my first born son  :D

I thought that the whole point of Herr Döktor's wonderful creation was to make a "Decoder ring" as a badge for Brass goggles users, as discussed in the "And so it begins" Thread.

I'd love a ringfor myself (in a UK P) but Mr C has The World's Fattest Fingers (TM)" and even a Z is far too small for him.....

You know what they say about men with unusually large fingers...

Why, Miss Eredschtadt,  I am quite put out that you would think such of me.  We are, after all, in mixed company here.

Quick update: This will definitely happen, just recovering from the Asylum, and having to do some paid work before sorting the rings out...

Stay Tuned!

Yet another gentleperson jumping up and down squealing with arms and fingers extended!  metoometoometoometoometoometoo!

I would love one in silver or gold plate, as other metals and I rub each other the wrong way (blisters, weeping skin, etc).  I think my darling would also like one, and she can wear any metal, drat her.  First choice is the pair o' goggles, second the monogoggle.   Other formats, like pins, charms, and the like would be super, too!

Will watch for estimated costs, etc.

Exactly why I was so shocked!

And perfectly fine, Doktor. Take your time, I'm sure we'll still be waiting.

Quick update: I've prepared two 'masters' for the manufacture of the rings, one the average size for a chap, the other the average for a lady, I willl hopefully be passing them on for quotation  of costs this weekend...

PS: The lady's ring is probably the right size for a chap's little/pinky finger.

That is aboslutely delightful, I would love to get my hands on one :)
Or in one, as the case may be.

Oddly enough, I find I like the tiny buckle even more than the tiny goggles. I'd wear it even if it were just a miniature finger belt!
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
