Hi mike, thank you!
It would have been an easier job if I could improve the sharpening of cutting tools. I'm still novice in sharpening....
I would advise making the nipple from brass. It is easier to solder on to the pipe and being softer than steel, the taper seals more easily.
This is brass Paul!

Thanks for your advice! I'll keep it in mind!
