Before and after

You may remember me posting this last month as my Christmas gift to me. I got this finished using a burnished brown paint, and turning a hickory handle and walnut caps.

Much better! Nice looking and probably feels right and proper now.

It looks nice but after making a couple hickory handles for my vice I replaced it with water pipe like yours was.

Nice! But I'm more partial to the glorious shade of old green that old machines have.

It does do better now, and hasn't had as much of the clunking sound it did prior to mounting it. I just put the wooden handles on yesterday and have taken them for the test drive yet. Maybe Sunday afternoon I can get in there and squeeze something.

I'm gonna keep that pipe just in case. That hickory handle is certainly weaker than the steel one. Maybe I can baby it for a while though.

Looks great!

I saw a tip on a video that said to put some O-Rings around your handle at each end. That will help protect your end caps from getting beat up.

Good tip. I think I will see how they hold up and decide what plan B will be for it. If something happens to the new handle, I will probably "perty" up the steel handle that came with it and put that back on. I bet that one won't get beat up too badly.

I use a PVC conduit handle with a dowel inside, caps are attached with a countersunk screw.
