    - Keychain pill ("spy") capsules.
    - Unique bits which fit into the sockets found on some multitools (you may need a milling machine, too.)

    Good ideas, thanks, I think I'll try and make a Collapsible Cane that turns into a P24 first.

    Great ideas guys, but for now, I think I'll stick to making the collapsible cane. Love the idea of pressing a button and having the shaft retract up through the handle making a stout P24. I think it would surprise the most vicious dirtbag out there.

    Side note, and yes, I've thought about an Enfield No.4 spike bayonet pop out and lock from the handle. :shocked: :evilgrin:

    Baggerboy has pointed out with one of his posts that the Government can see alot with xrays. Think I'll try something other than metal and see if the machine will do it, or I can do it with the machine.

    People on CPF tribore maglite bodies so they can fit larger battery adapters inside and make them brighter. Have you ever seen Mac's Torch? It can light paper on fire :evilgrin: . Come to think of it, though, you can't do that with a lathe, can you?

    Never seen so have no idea, still don't have the stand here, so I'm kinda of anxious. busy week, hope to have the stand here by the end of the weekend.

    PS: A four foot lathe is a bit of a bitch to move to the basement by yourself.
