fitting a handle to a hawk question
I have made my first hawk and am trying to get a good fit on the handle. I can slide it to within about 3 inches of the end of the handle and it stops there. I know I will have to remove material from either the eye of the handle. Is it better to one or the other or a combination of both? I'm thinking a confirmation of both but wanted to make sure before I get too crazy on the files. One other question is about the head wanting to wiggle a little once I get it pushed as far up on the handle as I can get it. By wiggle I mean I can hold the handle still and rock the head up and down. How is a good way to keep it from wiggling? Wet a piece of leather and wedge it in?
Here is a pic of the hawk head so you know it happened....
If Obama is the answer how stupid was the question.
