    Default Boker Waldorf - Covered Tang Rebuild

    I rebuilt it using a Metallic Flake Black Acrylic

    Polished the steel, and the original scales

    Hint: Do not forget to drill out the pivot hole on one side BEFORE you set both sides, that is what the Pin Vice is for

    #3500 Epoxy

    I also do what is called a Mechanical lock,,, I go through each hole in the tang and drill a divot in the acrylic this allows the Epoxy to flow through and Mechanically lock everything together...

    Exactly what you do NOT want to happen when Glass-bedding a Rifle works perfectly on a razor

    Very nice work. The tang covers look very clean without pins.
