You have a good idea so far. Plastic might be worth a look.Here is a link to United States Plastics Corp. They have plastic tubing of every size and some are chemical proof.

Good luck on your endeavor.

A plastic one is in the works..you are right about the copper..for the most part I don't use anything on my patches, maybe a swipe with oil, I will put some Wipeout on a peice of copper and see what happens.

I have spare time at night..70% chance it won't work and I will just buy one. If I could get the Lucas I would...Thinkin I have to cut an access hole, to put the patches on..

Re: Homemade bore guide

I have emailed Mr. Lucas, the problem is I live in Canada and too many people complained about shipping times. Also they can't mail more than 2 , we can thank the U.S. Homeland Sec. for that one cause they don't want terrorist cleaning there guns! ..Not sure what that means but that's what I got

well back to the drawing board, as stated Wipeout turns brass and copper, blue..Please delete thread..
