    Thank you.

    Saturday is sharpening day. Dad is visiting, so I touched up the old timer's Old Timer. ;) Along with the Hartshead, and a J.Howarth from @Jack Black. Thanks, Jack!

    Never been there, but I’m sure it’s a great place.That whole area as you travel south on River Rd. Is dotted with these gems. That’s a tasty image, Jeff.

    I am anxious to see how you do in mixing parts from different makers. I have had a hard time doing that due to each manufacturer having different blade/ spring geometry. I have a medium Camillus stockman that was in bad shape. The main blade had completely worn away where it rides on the spring, so it just flopped around. I had hoped to use a slightly bigger Schrade ciip blade, but where it contacts the spring, it’s a totally different shape.

    If you unlock the secret, let me in on it!

    Hope we get to see the Camillus TL-29. Love those knives!

    Well so far I've pulled apart the Camillus navy camp knife, cleaned the parts and done a dry fit of the parts I'm reusing on it. Which isn't to difficult considering I'm basically taking one layer off. But I'm learning lots, and that if I do many of these mods I'm going to have to make a jig to get the spring back in. Going to take down the klien tomorrow and see where I'm at on fitting everything. I posted pics in the newest traditional thread, but here's one of the Camillus that's definitely NOT being modded:D[​IMG]

    Nice choices GT :) :thumbsup:

    A pleasure Rachel, have a great time with your dad :) :thumbsup:

    Jack Howarth was the owner of A.Wright & Son before John Maleham, the Sleeveboard and Barlow were probably made in the same factory :thumbsup:

    Hope everyone is having a great weekend :) The Porch is a busy place these days! :eek:
