    Very nice joints can be made just using a glass joint. soot it up majorly and warm it well, male or female. great tool to make joints.

    I admit a finishing tool, such as a griffin brass joint finisher is good too, but its actually harder to use until you get the hang of it. MOre perfect easier though once you can use it.
    you will shank me later

    The new helper has been great. Making dabbers, carb caps, pulling colored rod from old broken rigs.
    He is taking small steps but thinking big. I bet any of you would have taken him into the shop.
    Im going to give him free run to try most anything. He wants to learn vac stacks.

    Iv been impressed. It very fun to have a mellow easy going young person learning fast in the shop.
    I dont doubt we both progress much faster now.
