I used a wide, brass tip from a wood burning kit and a rotary tool to create a stippling tool that laid down several points at once and I outlined my ghetto process for creating it here on JTT. That was written in 2011 and I still get emails asking to buy the tips (which were never for sale). I am grateful to Oregon Trail Defense (OTD) for finally giving me a place to send to people to find a tool like the one I made.
OTD is now offering a Waffle Stippling Tip. It is much, much nicer than the janky one I made for myself. A tip like this is very efficient because it allows the user to lay down multiple points each time they contact the frame with the stippling iron. This greatly reduces the time you must spend inhaling the acrid little wisps of smoke that roll off the polymer frame of your favorite handgun.
These tips are available separately in two different versions – 12 lines per inch and 20 lines per inch. They are also available with an entire kit including the stippling iron and multiple other tips. Check out all of the stippling tools at OTD LLC.
Note: To head off the emails and to be clear – I am not saying OTD LLC ripped off my idea. People have been making and using tips like this long before I made mine. It is about time someone brought one to market.
