Hi group.  I have two knives that would be highly collectible if they weren't in such bad shape.  I have a 1925-32 Queen City Swell-Center, Opposite-End Jack knife and a Bulldog Stag Handle Baby Sunfish.  The pictures are in my image page. I am thinking about restoring/repairing them and I'd like some input.20170128_192222.jpg 20170128_192401.jpg 20170128_192401.jpg 20170128_192450.jpg 20170128_192517.jpg 20170128_185949.jpg 20170128_190151.jpg 20170128_190236.jpg 20170128_190334.jpg 20170128_190414.jpg

Saw this great piece of work and I am looking for some advice on repairing the pin on an Al MAR OSS model. The wire cutter portion the pliers grip is loose.  Does anybody know who might handle this kind of muti-tool repair?

Thanks in advance

Im not sure if its an improvment either but there are a lot of those alloy SA knives, now he has a unique knife. Very well done.

If I was your Shop teacher I would give you an A+ for that project.

Especially nice work on those pins! If I were the owner of that knife I would be very pleased.

Comment by Derek Wells on November 28, 2016 at 22:14

One of the more fiddly projects I have taken on. Is it an improvement? I trust the owner thinks so.
My first time ever with Micarta which was interesting and as always I learnt heaps along the way.
