Jack Guzman from Maine
I got the bug from the latest pw magazine. I made one using an old cheapo awl for the shaft . Turned the handle from some apple and used a brass cap out of my junk drawer. It came out crappy. It works but I think it's ugly.I was hoping to get a few pointers on putting the parts together from someone who had done it. I picked up a long 3/16" drill bit today to make the shaft out of and a few miscellaneous brass possibilities for ferrules and will give it another try tomorrow.
