Default Show me your tap handles!

I need to make new ones. Would love to get your input. I know the pics are strewn about this board but I'm lazy and I know you love to show them off anyway, so post 'em!... please...

Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Antique barrel taps off of ebay... you can get 'em for about $3 a piece.... and then the smart screw/insert thingies that you can either get from NorthernBrewer for something like $2 each or any decent hardware store for about 60 cents... plus... chics dig 'em

Argh, I hate these threads. I REALLY want to make my own handles, but I have so many projects backed up right now that have greater importance that it's just not possible.
