Home-made priming flasks
« on: January 04, 2014, 03:07:12 PM »
Here are some priming flasks I made a couple of years ago. I ordered some of the dispenser tips from TOW and made the flask bodies from the old hollow silver handled table knives.

Hawg, those weren't my original idea as I had seen one similar a few years ago. I just had to see if I could do it!

I bought up some more of the dispensing tips to make more of the pan primers. I will be putting them up for sale soon. The tips I got are the screw-in type vs the solder-in type I used previously. The advantage to these is that when you take the tip off, there is a larger hole to put the powder into the body of the "flask".

I bought the tips from TOTW, they will be about $9.00 delivered. I bought the metric taps that fit these dispensing tips so made up a few. There is over an ounce of silver in the handles. You can PM/ email me for pictures, etc.
