I am going to try my hand at some engraving and I really don't want to possibly waste a good set of ferrules doing so. Does anyone have an old junk female end, possibly from a restoration you did?

Thanks
John

Why not practice on something like copper or brass pipe--available and cheap. (Plumbing and auto supply stores)

Send me your address John. I can send some raw tubing for you to practice on...

Whew...there for a while, I thought I had asked for the holy grail. shocking.gif I am particular in the sense that I would want to practice on the actual material and not something similar. Thanks Harry, address sent.
