Bizman62 Posted January 15, 2020 Report Share Posted January 15, 2020 Thought I'd share this here as well since the original forum no longer exists. So... My ex-wannabe-son-in-law wanted to go to a luthiery school and I had been watching the early Crimson videos where Ben had an awl named Jessica. One day as I was in my wood shed I noticed a featherless dart lying around - the type that's very common here. The plastic tail is screwed in so I thought I'd try if a regular screw would fit and found one, only of the wrong size. So off to the hardware store to buy one single bolt with a square part below the cap. A wooden handle is a must so I chose a piece of alder from the pile of firewood, drilled a hole through it and after some carving with a knife lathed it using my hand drill! Some oil and voilà! 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
