I 've been making ferrells from cast brass pipe couplings sawn in half. There is a logo on one end and the pipe size on the other and the surface is sand cast, but these can all easily be filed or sanded off and polished to a nice finish. Of course the logo, which is barely discernable, lends a sort of mystery to the origin of the tool. :wink:

Yes to the question of plumbers fittings, but here (USA) vintage fittings are needed as the current parts in plumbing supplies are made of thin copper and swaged into shape, not cast brass as I mentioned. Too thin to be effective as a ferrell. And yes, you could see the lathe tools supply source and pay very dearly for the option of having someone else pre polish the part.
The 3/4 I mentioned is for the pipe size.

Dave - Axminster Tools show 3 sizes of brass ferrule in their catalogue but not on their website ?

Thanks Robin

I have looked at their site and that is why I couldn't find them, I will check out the printed version, also I hate the new Tilgear cd only catalogue.

Yes I agree - it takes ages to scroll pages etc I don't know why they don't have a proper website.
Thing is I'm a bit spoilt because their shop is very near me !
