Thanks I used a cam style stop and it’s in the shortest setting I can rotate the cam to the point where it won’t lock at all so I hope I will be fine you got me worrying now though ..... I’m not certain of the angle but it’s somewhere in the ballpark of 8 degrees thanks for the feed backLooking good! The only thing I see in the photos that will need attention in future folders is the lock engagement..... in the photo is apprears it might be about a lock's width engagement on the blade? If so, depending on the lock angle on the blade, it will likely "wear in" to the point it either won't function, or will be hitting the opposite liner. Nothing bad...just food for thought. My first several folders I did the same thing......and within a couple hundred opening/closing cycles, the lockbar was against the opposite liner.
Personally, I use a 7 1/2 degree angle on the blade, and leave the lock face square, with a 120 grit finish running vertically on the lock face.
