Bottle Stopper Help
I know this is probably a stupid rookie question but I'm a stupid rookie so deal with it, lol!!!!
So, I'm making some stoppers. Trying to graduate from pens and move up to bigger and bigger things. I purchased the PSI stopper mandrel and I have 2 questions about using it.
Number 1, The bushing portion of the mandrel is about 15/16" I think. The stoppers I'm purchasing from SS Niles have an upper dimension of 13/16". What the best way to go about this without leaving and ugly shoulder? I know there are people who use this mandrel and the SS Niles stoppers. I was thinking just put a flat washer on before the blank and turning down to the washer but I cant find anything with a 13/16" outside diameter.
Number 2, All the reviews I read for this mandrel says the supplied drill bit is too large and instead, I should use an 11/32" bit. I drilled the 11/32" hole and put a blank on and now I cant get it off. Even if I am able to get it off without destroying it, how do I go about attaching the stopper? Its not really possible to use tools to do this without damaging either piece.
