    I just use a drum stick with a crutch tip, per the Traeger book.

    It takes a little more than 10 minutes, but I turn mine with a 10mm carbon fiber rod through the middle. I find making sawdust relaxing.

    Home Depot online or instore. 1/2” or 5/8” white oak dowel rods. 36” $4.00. Use a hack saw for a precision cut at home to what what ever length. in fact several lengths to try. Plastic tips easy to find there or at Amazon. I had three dowels and cut into a dozen lengths for the Lammax System of angled endpin. Easy try out before spending much money.

    Here are the 2 I made for my main bass, yes it is pretty red. This has reminded me that I need to make one for my most recent bass. Yay - another covid project!.

    I hope that I'm not wasting space on this particular space but since I joined the conversation here, I may as well continue. I just finished this to go with my Shen.
