    Default Looking for pins, rods, washers

    Goodmorning everyone
    I was searching for pins, rods and washers with diameter of 2.5mm (nichel).
    I'm trying to rescale a Kintaka blade with padouk wood.
    I apologize if the topic has already been treated.
    Regards
    RIccardo

    Hi there. That's a very big pin diameter . Usually they are 1.6mm.
    Or do you mean the outside diameter of the washer is 2.5mm ?

    Thread below may be of help

    Too shot to shake, too rusty to rattle & a little to square to roll.

    Thank you, I saw most of diameters are 1.5/1.6, but the hole of the pivot is 2.5 inside.
    Thank you

    If it's that large you might need to consider some welding rod or similar. Some hobby stores may have something that diameter as axles for toy cars etc.
    Or make a sleeve out of tube with a smaller rod inside ?

    The thing that I will do is to leave the diameter of the pivot at 2.5mm inside and then make the end thinner to 1.5mm diameter. I still do not know how I'll do it, but I think it's the best thing to do.
    Thank you

    I created a 2.5mm outer diameter washer and 1.6mm inside diameter
    So I think I'm okay, then I'll show you the scales made yesterday by me in padouk

    Good call to go with the bushing to reduce the hole diameter. It looks like it should work just fine.


    It was in original condition, faded red, well-worn, but nice.
    This was and still is my favorite combination; beautiful, original, and worn.

    A lot of older, vintage razor have larger or ovaled holes. It come from wear of the fact that they were stamped not drilled. So a little slop in the hole is not a big deal. But the bushing is always best.

    I've used a nylon earbud tube as a bush in the past it can work a treat, it will hold a 1/16 or a 1.5mm pin perfectly snug.

    I went looking but couldn't find it but if memory serves you can use the top of an ink pen as a bushing to take up some of the slop.

    I don't have a way of measuring the ID but a 1/16" brass rod has slop but a 5/64" drill bit is very snug. My made by the C. H. Ina caliper show this as the ID;
