    With horn, you can heat the scales. Then bend or twist the scales to center the blade.

    So to speak

    thy are not twisted but I had to tap the pins so far that on scale is higher than the other and one even sits back further just don't look good. I am going to unpin them again and try Crescent city's suggestion.

    So, just to be clear about centering blades in scales. In the photo posted if you tap the pins as suggested by the arrows, will move the tip to the right.

    Moving the pin a few thousands, tip movement is multiplied by the length of the blade. If the pin hole is larger than the pivot pin, the pin can be moved, and if both sides of the pin are moved, one forward the other back, movement of the pin is doubled, as is blade tip.

    If the wedge is not glued, the scales can also be moved, the scale on the left forward and the right to the rear again doubling the movement. Wedges were never glue on Vintage razors, probably for that reason and there is no need to glue a wedge.

    The scale and wedge alignment will be slightly thrown off where the scales meet the wedge. The scales and wedge can easily be aligned by filing or sanding, it will also make the gap between the scales and scales seamless if the scales and wedge are flat.

    If you glue the wedge to the scales, you give up that adjustment. Just leave the wedge a bit large and shape to final dimension once the razor is completely pined and you are happy with the alignment.

    It worked just like you said it would but it had to move so much that I am just not happy with the with the way it looks.

    I use low temperature hot glue. It holds tighter than dick's hat band, puts no space in between to speak of and peels off usually in one sheet once you break them apart with no residue to clean up.
