When it comes to ferrules, there can be some custom option limitations. If you attempt to install the wrong size, it’s easy to have them break or be damaged beyond repair during the process. This video specifically addresses installing .355″ taper ferrules onto .370″ taper shafts while maintaining a snug fit and preventing creep.

    Wow – reached a new low. Unsafe and not even scratching the surface on the topic of preventing creep. Time for WRX to replace the so called ‘equipment experts’ with people who actually know about the topics and have extensive experience.

    Get a basic 3/8ths (.375) course rat tail file. Lock the file horizontally in a vice. Run the inside of the ferrule up and down on the file.

    Or, you can just buy some proper size ferrules. The vast amount of ferrules are 370 irons and 335 woods.. This guy is tragic.

    Just use proper fitting ferrules. Instead of lopping off the skin or my fingers like this. Got it.
    I like having my fingers and the skin and beautiful nails on them.
    Thanks

    Really? Not even a glove while you handle a ferrule that has a reamer bit in it?

    Just use some acetone and q-tips to “ream” out the ferrule and slide it onto the shaft. 2-3 passes and a .335 ferrule is now a .370. far safer than what you just did.

    That might have been the most unsafe thing I’ve ever seen advocated on WRX. Reaming out the ferrule with a high speed reamer – freehand. Can’t believe you would advocate doing something like that without protection. There was absolutely nothing between you and the drill bit. I ream out ferrules all the time, but you’ve got to protect your hands and fingers. One little slip off the ferrule and you could severely damage your fingers. Do what you like off camera, but some dolt is going to watch this, try it and end up missing his skin.
