    What did you use for glue? Next time it doesn't have to fit so tight that you have to twist and push it down, in doing so you push all the epoxy down the blank also.

    I honestly can't remember the glue. It was a long time ago. I did follow the instructions of Gary Anderson so I know I was doing it right. I did make the center hole ovesized for the epoxy. Where it went wrong was there was a thicker part of the blank at the a ferrule that I had to force it over. This is where the scratching occured
