Needle file handle
« on: August 14, 2022, 08:59:12 PM »
Tough hanging on to those little needle file handles. So I decided to make a couple needle file handles. Just loosen the set screw and you can switch to a different needle. Turned the brass insert on the metal lathe. The wood of course on the wood lathe. Easier on these old hands.  Hardest part was filing out that little butterfly set screw.

Thank you
Jeff

Ended up making a third one this weekend. They are very handy. Still need to make the locking screw. Will finish that tonight. I get much more control with the handle resting in my palm.







Thank you

 Hello Jeff,
  Are you going to make any for purchase? I would be very interested in three of them.

Plumloco,
Not thought about it. But let me make up a couple and see what kind of time I would have in them. Making the brass ferrules and lock screw is the most time consuming.

Thanks for the note.
Jeff
