Further and likely final regeneration. This has more in common with the original iteration which feels appropriate given the event which lead me to build it. I wish I could photograph it better, it looks much better in person.

I speak to you from the final days of Gallifrey. I am the past you have forgotten. You are the future I will not live to see...

Looks fantastic! Live the grip I love old grips like that
No, not the mind probe!

Attempt at a pic in different lighting but mainly trying to reduce how big the emitter looks in the other pics.

I mentioned before that this sonic was born out of a need for distraction, I suffer from mental health problems and that is a coping strategy of mine.

I'm ready to talk about what happened now - a good friend of mine committed suicide. No one was aware he was struggling and it was an appalling shock. I was very sad and also, and this is not to my credit, I was furious with my dead friend. We often talked about our mental health and I was angry he didn't feel he could reach out to me. I fell back on building a sonic.

The sonic has changed so much because whenever those feelings resurfaced I went back to it as a coping mechanism.

I'm more settled about what happened now and so it seems appropriate to name it for him - the Dingram Sonic.

Sorry for the loss of your good friend!  :(
It's never good when this happens, so we hope you have someone that you can talk to when ever you need to.
All the best.

BTW, that is a fantastic sonic you have made there. I wish I had a lathe to turn out items like this.

Thanks.

I don't have a lathe. all found/gifted parts.

I've added a red stripe to match those on my TARDIS console to bring a bit of unity between the two and I think it looks alright. I've also added a setting nob on the bottom. Just needs a touch of paint to finish the black stripe near the bottom.
