Thought I would pass this along. If you use small spiral carbide router bits, you have probably broken a few. I have. It occurred to me that the broken piece would make a good burnisher for my scrapers. I just took the piece and epoxied it, broken end in, into a walnut graver handle I had turned a while back. Viola! a great little burnisher. Mine is 3/16” for the carbide, but anything you break will work.

Nice work. Is that ferule made from the brass from a shotgun shell?

swirt,
No, I probably drilled it from rod on a metal lathe from the looks of it, but your idea of a shotgun shell base is a good idea and inexpensive!

Great idea, Unfortunately I spent $ on the veritas burnisher a few years ago.

Made mine from a wrist pin from a defunct motorcycle engine. Turned a couple handles, fixed the handles with all thread and brass acorn nuts.
