Looks good!
I see you have one handle that will accept different inserts. What did you use for the tubing that was thick-walled enough to take threads for the set-screws?

thanks Digger…
joeinGa…I used a tube for water supply, outside a galvanized steel pipe and inside the copper pipe. So I found a pipe to use the square steel rod holder inserts only with the kombinacijom.Pošto the inner tube copper, should not be excessive pressure on the pad because the pipe is soft.
thanks Jim…
Arlin,you can buy carbide on Ebay,I found it on fairground,but I’m in CROATIA and can’t help you

Odlično, izrađivanje vlastitog alata je stupanj više od samog hobija.Definitivno ovakvih nadogradnji nema kod nas za kupiti, osim osnovnih oblika dlijeta za drvotokarenje.

I like the grip on the handle, looks comfortable. Nice video too.
