Hello all, I made my first tap handle last night and was surprised at how easy it was. Now I have a few different options for the front, I can use chalkboard paint, dry erase, or you can put a sticker/label on it. I've decided to make a few more for friends and wanted to say that if anyone here wanted one just PM me.







Dan

I can't help but to notice those look like artificial joints used in the medical field.

amazing size difference in people's hip joints, no?

(left and right taps are femur heads? or is the one on right humerus? - making the left a very small femur replacement.)

this thread is so cool, I got inspired. I gave my 2 boys a lesson in eminent domain and used a few of their toys for new handles. only 1 protest, and he gave me an alternate shark to use. then I used a shifter knob from a transmission I had in the back yard.
