    Tom Menck tools gone?

    Earlier today I read that Brownell's no longer has the Menck 22 Chamber Ironing tool. I checked their website and ALL of the Menck tools are out of stock, discontinued, simply gone. I can't find any of these tools anywhere on a generic web search. Thankfully I already have all of these products I routinely use but hate to think about what this may mean toward future sources for replacements. Can anyone bring me up to date on what has happened here? Thank you.

    Sadly I believe Mr. Menck is not doing well.
    Not sure, just what I heard through the grape vine.

    It is fairly simple to make a chamber ironing tool. Turn a piece of drill rod to slip fit in the chamber, then mill a flat on the end to allow you to insert it past the dimple. Harden. That's pretty much it.

    I see that BIS beat me to it in a different post! This isn't rocket science. If you don't have a mill, a filed flat on the end will do.
