    Default Shumate Restore fishing for tips.

    I picked up a shumate on one of my antique runs. It had minor nicks (which are now honed out) and a little rust ( thats gone too). Now for the scales. The previous owner sheared the pin with a dremmel and left the scales usable but not repairable. So... I found another shumate with good scales but the blade is toast. How do I canibalize the scales on the unusable blade to replace the scales on the usable one? Tips anyone?

    Go to the SRP library here . You'll find tutorials on restoring , including rescaling. I'm pretty sure sixgun posted some stuff in there on it years ago.

    JIMMY said it perfect, read the wiki, it will tell you how. There's a few different ways to do it, I drill out the pin with a drill press and go from there, but check out that page and you'll find some answers

    'Just tossing in that a Shumate is worth the effort. 'Very nice shavers.
