Can anyone tell me if the various Porper tip tools are any good? Specifically, the trimming tools such as the mushroom tool?

Thanks,

Randy

The mushroom trimmer is quite good. Just be careful when you use it. I have trimmed part of my ferrule on accident.

There are loads of tappers, scuffers available, none better than the rest.

I've got a big shaver, and used it to do tips before I got a Williard. It does the job, although I found that the little conical tension screw, which holds the tip against the blade, can leave a very small linear impression in ferrules.
Perhaps I am trying to trim it too close.

The (white) nylon burnisher is great, but you must use patience, and very little pressure, as with any burnisher.
Otherwise, you'll "burnish the tip right off".

The tip clamp seems OK as well, but it takes a little getting used to, to seat the tip correctly.
