    Pressed thumbstud

    I am planning to build a folder with a pressed thumb stud and I remembered to ream to a size .001-.003 under 1/4" but I don't remember seeing if it mattered whether the stud is press before or after HT. Anyone have a thought on this?

    Need handle scale edge finishing help

    Sorry for the late response I was out of country. Yes the bevel around the scale. i can do them easily in micarta and G10 but have a lot of trouble keeping it looking consistent with Ti.

    Need handle scale edge finishing help

    For G10, Micarta and carbon fiber I can run a small shaper table with a roll over bit to quickly soften the edges then sand to finish but I am hoping there is a way to get clean consistent appearance with Ti without a mill and not spend hours sanding.

    Need handle scale edge finishing help

    How do you guys get a consistent edge around the border of the handle scales on Ti? I want the lines on the Ti scales to be crisp and not washed out but I dont know of a time efficient way to do them without a mill.

    Thank you Mr Robinson. I hope to step up the finishing on the next few. I made a ti clip that matches the pivot and stop pin but need some different screw heads than the ones I have to mount it correctly.

    Thanks guys. It was a fun build and I am enjoying using it. I had planed to use some 20cv I had but its not wide enough and I didnt have any liquid nitrogen in the dewar so for a test run the 1095 was quick and easy. I have several more to build and will refine it as I go. The next 5 will have...

    I was inspired by a friction folder created by Belgian maker , Lucas Lardinosis, and had to have something similar. The cool thing was I had plenty of scrap in the shop to make the thing. 2.25" blade and 6.25" total length. .138 Ti scales and Aldos 1095. Its a full little folder and I will file...

    Justin I tried to send you a PM but your mailbox is full. I have not made any folders from scratch but have assembled a few, sanded down pivots and standoffs etc.

    You can use all of it if the blade, with the thickness of the washers you choose, + .001 equals the distance between the shoulders of the stop pins. Tapping adds strength and removes slop if its tapped square to the frame over just drilling a pilot and screwing into the stand-off.
