Great repurpose of the taps!
Whit is the flat bladed tool you turn with? It looks to me like a gasket scraper.

Great Idea.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Looks like a great re-purposing of an unlikely tool. You might want to temper it softer so it won’t snap on you in use… taps are generally made very hard (and thus very brittle). You could heat it with a torch until yellow or maybe purple (ideally you’d want purple/blue as it approaches the handle and light yellow on the edge) then dunk in water to stop the process. Might have to reglue into your handle after.
