I currently have an absolute load of antler in my stock, mostly I sell it for £18-25 each piece. The silver bit looks like a BSP fem. thread strait coupling for threaded iron pipes or threaded rod (whatever you do delete your history after searching that)

Not the fit and finish I would like, grind up some of the leftover antler and mix with epoxy to make a filler, or get some white milliput.

I thought it looked like a damn good fit Woody, much better than many I see for sale. 👍
Thank you mate, but you aint met my harshest critic, shes a perfectionist. Plus I'm not keen on the step between the ferrule and the antler, feels uncomfortable to me. Maybe im just a fussy git lol

I take it you don't mean India 'coz we've met and I'm quite sure that she thinks the sun shines out of your fundament. Your OH must be one tough audience if she's not impressed with that stick Jon.

Shes got OCD which rubs off and gives me PIA 🤣 🤣 Claire used to be a retail manager so a right perfectionist. Tells me to take pride in my work, which isnt a bad thing
