Default Adjustable blowpipe ID

I've had an adjustable blowpipe for several years and would like to get an oval mouthpiece if possible. It came with a stark white mount which was very brittle and chipped easily ( Since replaced with"vintage' catalin. This make has a LI'L mac valve built in. Any ideas as to who made it?

It's not one of the old Crisler ones, is it?

That's what I thought it was. Did the old models have the Li'l Mac integral to the tenon?

The valve wasn't a Li'l Mac but my own design and manufacture. Yes it was clipped into the end of the tenon with a yellow plastic circular clip.

I have a picture of the blowstick in question, but don't seem to be able to share the link from DropBox here, I bought it years ago and don't still have the paper trail

It looks like a Crisler, at least from what I've seen in Sean Regan's video:

Thanks, Wes, but the Crisler blowpipes have a different valve in the tenon- this one has the end turned to the specs fo a Li'l Mac Valve and uses the same valve and cap.

It's not one I made. I never installed a Li'l Mac valve in the tenon.

It looks a lot to me like one of the Ayrshire Bagpipe Company older style of blowpipes, pre BigBore.

The mounts on the BigBore are different, but otherwise this is similar. The mouthpiece proportions especially.
