    Flared the tubing with a couple of field points set in some blocks. Flared out nicely with a little help from a vise. Cross your fingers for the next 5!

    These make for nice little flaring dies.

    That's awesome John! :cool: :thumbsup: That handle is looking stellar! (See what I did there? ;))

    You haven't been flaring your previous tube fasteners, have you (like on the pocket blades)?

    I don't flare the tubing on the pocket blades, the Nickel Silver is so thick I gouge the walls and let the epoxy bridge.

    Thanks for the time it took to answer my stupid question! :thumbsup:

    Thank you for that picture! :cool: :D Brightening my mood a bit just now, I'm more than a little annoyed after finding out that I might not get to hunt as much as I had planned this season (details in Muskets, Motors, Makers, and Mutts...).

    Hey now, that's clever! I have a few field points just lying around!
    Nice point of interest, John!

    I have flaired out tubing in the past by doing a figuring 8 with the belt on my drill press, then using a large bit running backwards to open it up.

    I will put your method in my to-do book !

    Invisible pins, for the uber stealthy look!

    That's what I'd imagine carbon pins looking like on that one Sheldon, and I likes it! :D

    Both handles are finished, I've got these 2 and 3 cowbells ready for sheaths. Any requests? I'm going to try to get the butt of the handle at or below the belt line.
