Tip-Top Needle File
This is a very handly shop accessory. Tip-tops, as supplied, have a burr at the open end that makes the opening smaller then the real inside diameter of the tube. This means that the rodbuilder must spend extra time filing the end of the rod section to allow the tip to clear this constriction, thereby making the tip smaller then necessary. Just a few strokes with this file will clean off the burr and rough up the inner surface of the tube for better bonding. It is also invaluable in restoration work for cleaning out old glue and debris in old tip-tops. Price is $6.75 plus shipping.
