I wonder where Daniel Boone plugged in his dremmel? You're right, though. I am a bit obsessive/compulsive (or so I'm told). On the other hand -- every cap fits the same way on every nipple each and every time without fail. I like that. I guess it would be more "period correct" to have used an auger or a mini foot-spun lathe. I bow to your authenticity :bow: !!!
