Step 1: Gather Materials
Cheap iPad Stylus w/ Rubber Tip -- You need this only for the rubber tip, the one I used is the "rocket fish" brand from best buy
lathe cutting tools - Carbide Triangle Tip and Straight cut-off tool
six sided collet holder
3/8" 5C Collet
M4x0.5 Tap and Die
Step 2: The Plan
A note for stylus tip design for the iPad: The brass tip is 6mm diameter and with the rubber it's about 8mm , and this is the smallest you should go. If you go smaller than this the screen will not detect the touch, or it will only detect the touch if you squish down the tip to spread it out.
