Is it worth...

Hey all,

Is it worth showing mice you know have obvious faults (ie light set-ons, tan vents, etc) not because you think they have a hope in hell of winning, but to get an experienced critique on your mice and how the line can be improved? Or will the judges see showing sub-standard mice as an annoyance?

Very good points Sarah - My brother is a joiner I may see if I can sweet talk him into having a bash at making some ;)
I am reading this thread with utter despair, I had no idea the maxey cages were so hard to get hold of. Stupidly, I assumed that the NMC would sell them......eep!
they do sell them but they are hand made and a lot of the people willing to make them have become to elderly.Also club members seem unwilling generally to pay a realistic price so new people who come alomg with the skills soon get fed up.The nmc do operate a recycling scheme where they buy second hand ones and sell them to members for £5.In the last year a 100 have been passed on this way.Get your name on the waiting list asap for these.
I could do with some more Maxeys, and I would pay £15 each, but would only buy one now and again to add to my collection as I couldn't afford to buy like say 4 in one go at that price.

LSCMRC hire out maxeys at their shows.

thats what I do,my aim is to aquire 3 new ones a year and I now have a good few.I bought 4 and a carrying box from ebay for £30 this year so my target is met.Pays to have your eyes peeled.
£15 does not sound like an unreasonable price, when you consider the work that must go into one. As my woodworking skills are somewhat limited to banging in the odd nail I don't think I will be trying to make my own! Useful to know that about the Enfield shows Lisa, but it is doubtful that I would be going to those shows.
