Cool. Thanks for replying.Tricod wrote:The texture is done with a dremel and then a light beadblast to eat away at the resin but not at the glass.
You could use G10 epoxyed to the scales however I would also reccommend at least getting some 1/8" barrel screws. Even without the space they are better than no hardware. If you drill the scales to fit the barrel screw and then epoxy the scales on the epoxy will fill up the gaps in the holes and create a solid joint. The problem is that your scales will slide all over the place while glueng becuase of the epoxy. Makeing them very difficult to line up.clovisc wrote:i'm contemplating getting some G10 and going nuts making my own mule scales, but i'm a little concerned about the whole pin issue. what are my alternatives (if any) to getting special, hard-to-find pins, or fabricating them? how would the G10 do simply epoxied to the handle?
Your sheath came out nice. You can find an inexpensive eyelet tool at most craft stores. I think they even have them at Wal Mart in the craft area. It's a small tool with a separate base that you tap with a hammer. It has worked for me so far.Tricod wrote:I would prefer eyelets. I however dont have the tools to crimp them. So I used a Acrylic Solvent Cement. It seems to work quite well. But I am no sheathmaker so...
I'm looking into getting a press so I can use rivots or eyelets and the use the Teklocks as well.
Anyword on the fastners?
