« Part 4: making the dongers? ...mallets anyway... Part 5 of Tongue Drum Journey series Part 6: Getting the Mallets finished and the Frame prepared »

Well I went to progress my dongers and guess what I found? more of my big budget super balls split.

So first off it was back to the shop for more top shelf super balls

I then decided to do some scientific autopsy work to try and determine why they split.

The sticks were 8mm or there a bouts the forstner bit was 10mm

The only possible cause was I had used the incorrect size forstner bit initially, I am not really sure but the holes I drilled def looked smaller once I removed the sticks.

So I re drilled them and I did notice some material appeared softer than the others.

They do look a bit like Chubba Chups !!

Re glued the handles back in and left them for another day.

-- Regards Rob

They might have a Chubba Chups look about but sure as eggs they’d not have a similar taste; very chewy too.

I’m 78 years old and on my way to 79 and I had to google Chubba chubs. This site is more of a learning site than anything else because I would never have known that a chubba chub was a lollipop – thanks guys

We called them Kojak Lollies as Telly Savalas was always sucking on one in the TV series!

I think crowie is still crowing about their 50-6 drubbing of the morons (sorry Maroons) by the Blues…

I believe the reference should have been Chupa Chups

rc, is that “expanda” glue you are using… have you tried CA… helps the CC’s stick to the roof of your mouth.
