They were described on ebay as 'Genuine Loddon Porcupine quill guaranteed to catch monster barbel'.

He wouldn't lie would he?

Rather than forking out and buying an all singing/ all dancing lathe has anyone ever used one of these:

Really got the float making bug after reading this thread (been mucking about with wine corks and sandpaper) and want to speed things up a little.

easyier & cheaper too use a portable clamping tabletop vice too hold your drill (or flexable extention) and can be set up anywhare ,kitchen worktop ,dinning room table etc




the only real drawback too using a drill is the noise

Hi Steve

How easy is it to center the float body though? I was thinking it would be easier with a lathe than with a drill alone unless you can tell me an easy way of doing it?

Cheers
