I needed a handle for a kitchen whisk (for whipping things) made so I contacted Brillion Pattern & Machine Co. (920) 756-3114 in Brillion, WI where I live (pop. 2300).

I asked questions as the owner was entering CAD information for a part someone wanted cast. I was told that a gun part that is flat on two sides could be made for somewhere around $200. The choice of steel is relatively simple, I guess.

It is something that many of you know about pattern and machine shops but it was new to me.

I gave him a proof copy of Stock Fitter's Bible since he shot trap and skeet and I didn't need the proof. There was no charge for the round, tapered handle with a hole drilled down the center for the whisk shaft that he made on on a lathe. It's beautiful and just what I had in mind. (He said he liked the book.)

Rollin, I live in Rockton, IL and my shop does a lot of work for Endries, located in Brillion.

The reason WHY you fellas can't find it is because it is out of publication. BUT, have no fear! It's been reissued as the "Whisk Repairman's Bible". It is pretty much the same material that Whisk repairing Secrets offered, with it's detailed information about the history of Whisks that date back to both the Mayans and Egyptians (there have been Whisk parts found in pyramids from both cultures). You'll be relieved to know details about fitting Whisks and some wonderful new illustrations in the updated version.

I got two copies of Tron's book "whisk repairing secrets" and kept one for myself...it's been a valuable tool as I attempt to repair my own whisks.

The other one?

I offered to sell that one to a local high school whisk team who are short on funds...

Tron- I think that you plagiarized my book "Whisk repair for dummy's." I will have my attorney contact you in the very near future. If you are interested in opening the discussion for some type of settlement, please contact me ASAP. Sincerely Motordoctor.

I'm suprised no one's offered to sell Rollin a detailed map of "Dairy Queens Across America". Maybe I'm the only one with a copy left eh?

This is why I've been guiding my son towards a solid career as a machinist. He likes working with metal and machine tools. He's now a certified welder, and is taking general studies this year to get some classes out of the way so he can start a two-year machine tool technology course. He will be able to run lathes and milling machines, and do CNC work. He's also got a small machine shop started at home, with his own drill press and milling machine. I can do machining, and have my own equipment, but I'm not a machinist. That's why he's getting the training.

Rollin,

If you ever manage to find that Dairy Queen...they'd probably give you a free Blizzard just to make you go away.

Wow, after reading a few of these posts I flashed back to high school and the smart ass kid sitting beside me who just had to say something stupid every chance he got to get attention. The poor kid had some kind of self esteem/sexual inadequacy problem we found out later. Wonder what he grew up to be, a skeet shooter wishing to become a trap shooter or a oil change jockey\gunmechanic? LOL

Hang in there Rollin your fine book has helped me and lots of other people. It's a lot easier to trash others efforts than to accomplish something yourself.
