Hey guys

I lost my old thread so I put up a new one, here are pictures of my project so far, Parts gathering more or less.

These above are my parts so far, the hose will stick the copper pipe into the smaller pvc tube for the neck. The larger PVC tube will be sliced into rings for the grip. The coupling will fill the space under the clamp (I still have to find).

This is a piece from an old front door lock. It's the right outside diameter, I may drill out a hole that's actually centered or just leave it, not quite sure. I'll glue pvc/pipes beneath it to finish the emitter

This is a sink handle with little pyramids around it. it's a little big but I liked the idea of grinding down the points to get that block shape that these pommels are known for..

This is the neck so far (un glued) and minus the clear hose inside the pvc. That's a radial bearing over a copper reducer, over a 1/2 inch copper pipe.

and here is everything again. Does anyone know if caulk sticks to electrical tape? I have to fatten the inner PVC pipe. Then i was going to glue rings in place and put caulk in to make the bevel, then just grind down lengthwise.

Glue? for metal pipe/pvc/etc.

Anyone know where to find a graflex clamp copy?

Other hardware sabers? love to see them!
