There is an Eddie Castelin video there .... is that the one you're referring to ?

Do the search on youtube.com for "piercing on the cheap" and pick the one by Glynn Cox of the Denton Turners. At the end of the video, there is a handout that you can print with instructions for making the piercing tool. If you decide to go ahead, let me know and I will share a few extra things that I got from Glynn and learned in the process of making it.

Thanks, Jim.

I watched Eddie's video first because it was short. . I'll watch the others and get back.

Nice pens and +1 on the piercing tool. On Jim's recommendation I too got one. Works great especially for the price. If you have a regulator, the tool is only $37 on eBay. I got the on off switch as well but find that a simple valve works just as well for me. Only drawback for me is that my compressor is a little undersized for this so watch out for the air consumption. I get around it by piercing a few minutes and resting a few. It's very relaxing.

Bruce,

Did you go the Eddie Castelin route ?

Nope, same as Jim - piercing on the cheap by Glynn Cox. Think it's similar to Eddie with minor differences. Either should work.
