    OK, Chinese mandolin supply to bagpipe incineration -- has to be one of the longest topic vaults in recent memory!

    Toilet paper and mandolins aren't interchangeable. Don't ask me how I know that.

    I just wish I'd saved all of the string envelopes I've thrown out over the years. I also want to give an honorable mention to those forward thinking bowlback builders back in the late 1800's to early 1900's that lined the inside of the bowl with paper.

    Increasing reliance on offshore makers to meet domestic needs guarantees situations like this. We get lower costs, but becomes consumers and not producers and give away any ability to provide for ourselves. So, wait.

    Even the cheapest mandolin should never be used in place of toilet paper. A banjo, however, is perfectly ok
