If I may: when I changed scales on my Kephart, it was great to see that the screws were glued on one side (didn’t look like loc-tite), and easier to open on the other. I usually use red loc-tite on one side and blue on the other. Was great to see that it was similar here. First fixed blade where I’ve seen it done like this out of the box.Are the factory screws installed with loc-tite? Would you recommend against reinstalling with loc-tite?
Hey Nathan, I have received my very first CPK. I am very happy with my purchase. The ergonomics, weight, cutting performance, fit and finish, and overall feel of the DEK1 are perfect. Great work! I normally take knives apart when they have removable hardware, however I don’t want to mess with perfection.
My question is. If I were to remove the scales. Are the factory screws installed with loc-tite? Would you recommend against reinstalling with loc-tite? Is there any alignment needed when reinstalling the scales, or are the tolerances so tight that they align perfectly?
Thanks! That answers the loc-tite part of my question. I think I won’t be removing the scales. It’s nice to know they are installed so well. If I ever do need to remove them, I will remember to unscrew the right side. Great info.
Is the new machine in place? Up and running?
arent your cnc machines like the ones I run?That is also a good question
It's in and it's safe but I had to take some stuff off of it to get it in and it needs some clean up because some dust blew on areas that should be clean during the trip, so it's probably going to be a few days before we get it powered up.
