    Finished the rework of my cast steel blade I did a while back. I made new collars from 00 wide copper washers and support collars from 0 brass washers. I pinned it up with nickel silver rod. I also reworked the wedge into an actual wedge shape and muted the point a bit. I re-set the bevel last night and will finish the hone and give it a test this weekend. I think new collars are an improvement over my first attempt and the wedge is better. Hopefully the tip modification will keep it from trying to bite me.

Plus it seems to be a good diameter for light polish sanding or surface sanding after bluing engravings or stampings inside the hollow. The rubber is stiff and it has a little give to it.
    I've never used it for what it was made for at least by putting it in the end of a drill, just for hand sanding. I've also never seen one before and I don't know where I'd find one if I were looking for it. Just thought it was useful.
    Would work best as a contour sander on a drill press..

    Finished with my CMON blade. I filled the lettering and lines with black enamel and blued the tang (except for the logo area on the front). The cold blue took well, I'm just not getting a good photo. It's not really clear in the last image, but I blued the top of the tang and sanded away the bluing on the rounded portion to leave just the flat areas blued.

    I'll be dealing well with the scales next.

    I need a little help deciding what to do with my CMON scales.

    I've got a second one that was part of a lot purchase with OK scales (some stress cracks around the pivot) and an iffy blade. The blade has some significant wear at the toe as well as hone wear on the spine. The front has a weird bit of damage that wraps around to the top of the spine. I don't think it's a crack, more like electrical damage or maybe it's an artifact of forging If you think this blade is toast, I'll use the scales for the good blade. If you think it is worth saving I'll probably reinforce the cracked area on the original scales. Pictures of the possible donor below.

    Thanks for any advice.

    Oh, and the test shave this morning with my re-done cast steel blade was quite agreeable. Muting the tip made it much nicer to shave with.

    I'd say swap out the scales, if you can do it without breaking them.

    Default A quick fix

    W Day & Sons 353 The Strand. 11/16ths Wedge.

    This took me a few hours only, not including the honing.

    Salvaged some old scales. The blade has some weight to it considering its so small.
