So I have had the old dip tubes from my legally purchaseg kegs sitting around collecting dust in the garage. I had a few beers last night (perhaps too many) and decided to play with the saw and some spray paint... Clever and safe, right?

Anyways I cut off the excess metal and sanded down the standard black plastic tap handles to fit inside of the tube. A few coats of spray paint and voilá!

I think its a fun way to reuse the old dip tubes and wanted to share.

I also have several dip tubes I received, legally of course- directly from the Vatican, and I have been trying to find something to use 'em for other than a melee weapon.
Sometimes, I doubt your commitment to Sparkle Motion!
