Yes it slides on
Yes 187 does great work. He has done about 5 markers with it. The other sterling the guy was talking about was the first he did for me. Should never sold it. That's why I redid this one. Missed my baby and the guy I sold it to didn't sell it back as we agreed. Pains me to see it up again but I have a new better one and an amazing jubilee edition so no need for a third.
