And Dremmels too, I think. I see people recommend using a Dremmel or other rotary tool on Facebook for one thing or another all the time. And the thought just scares the crap out of me.Buffers are the WMD's of the pipe world.
I'm assuming when we see examples like that, it's because the stem and stummel are buffed separately?
If you look at the top view there is some significant scratching that strongly suggests more than buffing.
