Since this is a non scenic bit, you could get away with just screwing a large screw part way in or a small 'L' shaped bracket, to stop anything going off the end.

Take up less room than the buffer stop Ian.

Just a thought.

Hi Ron

a. The 4mm needle I cut to length to make a tube.

b. The 2mm needle is cut to make a rod.

The picture hanger is opened up as a clamp and the wire part straightened to an L shape and Superglued inside the 2mm needle to go through the point.
