Re: A second wave delivery thread!

Straightening the standard is going to be easy,

boil a kettle, pour into a mug and dip the standard pole in and it will go as soft as cooked spaghetti and just hang down into position, set in a mug of cold water

all your goodies look so good I can't wait for mine!
