Nice touch. There is a satisfaction to have custom made tools. Even nicer when you made your own !
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the nice comments fellas. Brian, I used Deft spray Lacquer – 3 coats each. It dries very quickly so you can do 3 coats in 90 minutes.

these are very nicely done. I know they’re fairly new, but, how are the tips holding up? Are they any better than those 4 in 1 shafts? Thnx
