This is my Homemade Bradawl I made a few days ago. I used a Teak coffee table leg for the handle that I turned on my Homemade lathe, Then a piece of copper water pipe for the collar and an old screw driver for the spike that I ground down to shape on my bench grinder. I then found a piece of hollow Alloy pipe that I cut to size and buffed it out on the lathe to use as the safety sleeve. . I was very happy with the end result.
Great job in making the awl from re-purposed materials. The copper ferrule is a nice touch and I like the display photos as well. Do you have photos of your homemade lathe or a link to a previous posting? We are always interested in seeing homemade lathes.
Thank you for posting the excellent photos, Paul
Thank you for your Kind Comment. I just found the link of the Lathe I posted here a while ago.
