Here's a pic of my new tap handles that a friend of mine made for me. He is ex-Air Force and lives near Eglin AFB in Florida. He comes across crazy military surplus stuff and decided to make me some tap handles.

Here's to you, man

The one on the left is an authentic F16 flight stick from some 1980's flight simulator the Air Force used, all the buttons work and everything. When you pour a pint it feels awesome.

The other one is a crescent wrench(obviously) but I'd like to think it has a cool story as well. Like, it was the wrench that unjammed a cannon on a battleship in WWII or it screwed in the last bolt on an SR71....something like that.

Enjoy.

I call shenanigans on that claim. And if I'm wrong. . . well, I don't want to go ANYWHERE near your keezer!

Seriously though, nice job.

I have a 20mm cannon barrel off an f-16, it would make an awesome tap handle if it wasnt 4 feet long and weigh a sh!tload
