Default Gearhead Tap Handles

I just received my laser cut inserts! They are made from 1.6l miata connecting rods.

The inserts are laser cut mild steel.




Now its time for a beer!

Cheers!

Those are really cool. Throwing this idea in the back of my head, just using Jeep L or F-head rods.

The handles are awesome but the labeling needs work. You could print something on paper, spray it with clear lacquer and cut out circles to fit...

To be honest I really like the lettering. It looks "industrial". There is just the small font that is really wounkey. There is a more accurate laser but these were cheap!

I was thinking about something clear like lean but I like this.
