A quick one..
A quick one.. No picture No picture No picture No picture No picture

This is a simple idea, stolen from years gone by.
A “bill peg” , they used to be on desks everywhere, where you “pegged” a bill
or an invoice until it was filed.
The base is a turning of ash, the shaft a brass rod, 1/8” .
for the shaft I chose a length, about 5 and a half inches in this case, chucked it in the drill press and used a file to shape the point, (after a suggestion from SWMBO, I then went back and dulled the needle point a bit :-]..
the shaft’s held in the wood with a touch of tightbond, but before insertion i ran an oversized metal die down it the depth of the hole, just to add a bit of tooth for the glue.l

Hi Glen. Way to go!.Nice bill peg.I thought that is what that was. I have not see many of those for years now with everything on computers. But some restaurants still have them
Good point on taken off the needle point. That could hurt if you popped a bill on it with the palm of your hand!

Nice quick one, indeed.

It’s nice to have no bills, too!
