Thread: Hilt Layering

  1. #1

    Default Hilt Layering

    I imagine this is going to be something requiring some trial and error, but I'm hoping to find a good pipe/tube that will slide (hopefully snug) over a 1-1/2" sink tube.
    I'm already planning on sliding a sink tube over a hilt I'm building but I want another layer to slide over that. If this isn't a perfect world and there isn't a pipe that would fit that well, I'm sure I could improvise. Just figured I'm probably not the first one that wanted to add more than 1 layer to an MHS hilt.

    Check the plumbing section of your local hardware store. There is a size of PVC that fits perfectly over 1.5" sink tube. With a proper paint job, you won't even notice that it's PVC. See #11, Palea Dei. I built that one with MHS, 1.5" sinktube, and a layer of PVC over it. Still running strong.

    We all have to start somewhere. The journey is all the more impressive by our humble beginnings. for the lazy man's resistor calculator! for getting resistor values the right way!

    I think I might already own some of that but I don't have any metal sink tube or MHS parts so it's hard to guess. I'm going to wait until I get MHS parts before I start buying new tube. Sure, I might find something that fits over a sink tube, but then there's always a chance that the tink tube won't fit on my hilt. Less headache to wait, me thinks.
