Ok, lets hope the mailman brings the parts I ordered a week ago, priority mail, or I am at a standstill.
Here’s what I have so far today.
A little surface grinding on the inside of the handle slabs to make those inlays flush.
Here’s how they look now, surface grinding complete. This is a bit of overkill, I could have just cleaned them up on the platen of my 2×72, but we’re going for overkill here.
I need some tooling plates for the rest of the machining, so I knocked these out real quick.
One for the perimeter milling.
And one you will see put to use later, on the blades.
And that is where I stand until some pivot pins show up. I really don’t want to make them myself.
