Boy this place is as dead as dirt! I have a question for any of you who work with metal or any of you that have a scabbard with metal on it. I am currently working on adding metal chapes or tips to my scabbards. I think I have the basic cutout designed but affixing it to the scabbard has me a bit puzzled. I tried soldering the edges together tonight on the back with no result. The solder just did not stick. For the record I am using nickel silver as my chape material. If someone has a scabbard with a chape how is it affixed? Is it just glued on?
