    Nial and Brad,
    
    thanks for the compliments- that was me and I still
    have plenty tubes left :o)
    
    I don't mind if you hand over your set though, no
    worries...
    
    While a lathe is fine and helpful, it is not a
    necessity. Trickiest bit being the tubes.
    For the locking mechanism's cam-disc, however, a laser
    cutter could be helpful. But rather as a perfection-
    my jigsaw work does the job perfectly well.
    
    Nial, you may wish to refer to my post of
    Mon, Mar 22, 2010 at 1:55 PM for details
    
    or contact me directly at
    wolfgang dot hasper at web dot de
    
    For the handle/base tube I have made myself a mandrel
    to secure it on the mill and machine the 20 grooves.
    works well :o)
    
    
    
    Regards
    Wolfgang
