I bought a heavier piece of steel rod to use as a ram rod when cleaning any epoxy that's left in the shaft after pulling a head.

Question - I'l like to put some sort of "handle" on the end of the straight rod .......any suggestions would be appreciated.

You can try file/rasp handles. Should be avaliable at woodworking and/or home improvement stores. May cost a couple bucks or so.

I use a drill bit smaller than the shaft hole & drill out the old epoxy turn it over and it falls out the butt end. :popcorn:

DRILL a hole in the end of the grip & it will fall out; Don't worry grips only last so long :lol:
