I have been tapping the phenolic inserts and butts for the joint screw ........... with the same tap for 10 years............. no problems........... it still cuts my finger

I'm surprised you didn't claim 20 years.

Machines well, glues well, and is as black as you will ever find, IMO. There are 2 ridges on the outside of these, 180 degrees apart. When Chucking it up, have to make sure the jaws are not on either ridge.It is a bit easier to tap for ferrules than others I've used.

Good great news, I wiil order some rod and tube, Thank You!

Why the heck are you using them for ferrules?

I have it in the collar size, ferrule size for break shafts, and butt size....don't you?

No.
Plenty of the brown canvas for break ferrules.
With those clear break tips these days, one piece ferrule tip breaker and jumper are passe'.

No internet for 24 hrs.
Then son called 5 mins ago, wife & I "need" to edit 3 grad school essays by 11:45 tonight.:grin-square:

Otherwise:

I pity the tap that goes through LE phenolic

was going to say "will let you know soon"
But probably tomorrow at this point.
Rolled/molded rod from Atlas came this afternoon.

Black phenolic LE tube here in joint and butt sizes, not sure where acquired.

Brown canvas is fine, have a lot of it...but when they ask for black....see my point?
The black that some suppliers have is less then black unless you dye it after machining it, I'd rather just have to machine, sand, polish and done.
As to the clear tips, I have seen a couple, only because the customer wanted them removed and white diamonds put on
