Hi, it’s me again!
I’ve got another one of those "what am I missing here?“
questions. I recently bought a length of 2.5” diameter Delrin
rod to make some forming mallets. I cut it into segments of the
appropriate lengths, and bought some handles at a hardware store.
I have read that handles with an oval cross section are better,
so that’s what I got. I’ve drilled two side-by-side holes as a
start for the handle hole, but am having difficulty cleaning it
out and removing the excess material. Any ideas/suggestions?
Trying to use the drill bit to kind of grind it out isn’t working
I also understand that I’m going to have to wedge the handle
into the mallet, since epoxy doesn’t stick to Delrin. Any
suggestions or tips here?
Thanks, everyone, for all your help!
