So, I have been refining my kitless clickers. You'll have to excuse the poor picture quality!

I added a recessed area for the clip to sit flush with the top of the adaptor/finial. I also felt like I wanted a longer version of the clicker, so I added a piece between the clicker and refill to extend the length of the blank.

The black and green cracked ice is the longer version.

nose cone and finial/adaptor are turned from brass rod. The bodies are vintage cracked ice cellulose acetate tubes.

Well done Lewis. Beautiful set there.

I really like those blanks, they match up nicely with your components.

Thank you for the compliments Mark and Brian! I am really happy with this version. I like the look of the inset clip. I think it gives a much more finished look.

With this method, I also don't have to worry about the diameter of the clip matching the adaptor and body:)
