    Very cool, nice lathe work.

    I kind of like the contrast of the cap polished rather than black.

    Yeah that would take a CNC Mill, Tri Start and Tri Bar would sell for sure. J&P has Tri bar's for HD I thought about buying one just to see if I could take it apart and machine the end to fit our threaded insert... If someone wants to buy one and send it to me.......
