Ferrals for tool

Recommended Posts

Hi Jim,

I'am Larry to make ferrules for wood handles you can cut them with hacksaw. But it is hard to keep cut straight. So the best way to cut is with a tubing cutter available at most hardware stores. You will be able to cut copper, thin wall electical conduit. All of which make very good ferrules. I have some I made with chrome tubing they look pretty good. If use your ferrules on turned handles the sharp edge can be file smooth while still in lathe. Then polish with sand paper.

Be Safe!!
