[QUOTE=Coleve;2016909]JAs you can see, I used my newly sharpened chisels and turned the front to accept a copper ferrule which being a plumber is a cutting of 22mm 3/4inch copper supply pipe which i coated with epoxy and forced home on my vice. [QUOTE]

When I do that I use the brass end of a fired 12 ga shotgun shell. Works nicely.

Some days, the supply of available curse words is insufficient to meet my demands.
Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.
