I’ve got some handles to turn, for files, and I will be finishing out a walking stick soon. I have used iron pipe, and copper tubing as ferrules, but I have seen corrosion. I should be using brass. What can I use for brass ferrules? I sorta looked around at the hardware, nothing jumped out of the aisle at me.

Thoughts?

thanks!

Brass flare nuts, threaded onto the handle, and turned round.

Dan … Brass Flare Nuts are in the plumbing department at Menards … cost about $1.50 each.

Or you can order ferrules of brass from Craft Supply or Packard.

I buy brass ferrules from my local woodworking store. The have an indentation on one side which helps to lock them onto the handles. They are pretty cheap and you just bang them on.
