secret bottom tool for Mike *PIC*

JamieDonaldson
>nipple nibbler for Mike-here is the secret weapon I made to reduce the explosions when trying to eliminate those bothersome nipples left in the bottom of deep hollow vessels. It is a scraper mounted on a 3/4" cold rolled steel shaft which I can mount in the Stewart handle or the Jamieson D handle/boring bar. The secret is mounting the cutting blade/shaft at a diagonal angle to the L so that the tip is shearing rather than just scraping as you draw it center to L across the bottom at centerline and not below. Works like a champ, and leaves a really smooth center with no tool marks.
