    Richard, do you put that in a vice or just work with it on a bench?

    Beats my first pinning and scales.
    Your work is to be proud of, and will only get better with time and practice.

    Looks like we have another in the group, fellas.

    Nice!

    I remember my first pinning, took me a bit to get the hang of centering the razor perfectly

    Also, your first razor is always something special, I wish I still had mine and I wish I had the same knowledge then than I do now

    If the bench is solid, I just set it on the bench to pin. If not, I have a plate of steel that I can use.
    If you wish to use your vise, the same unit comes with a shaft if you search for "drill chuck" there.
    Have fun, they are time savers and don't mess up the pins.
    Cheers!

    Im always afraid when using the vise of putting gouges or lines or making pin oblong. I might have to pick one of those up. Thanks Richard. And sorry to the OP for butting in. You did a lot better than my first set of scales. Mine is ugly but ill keep it forever! Might hide it from site but it was my first. Wood from the hardware store and a wood rasp. Then sand paper for hours. Ha.

    You did a fine job.

    You have to love the little tips that you get here. I hadnt thought about my vice making the pin go oblong, but that is a very distinct possibility. Neat idea from Geezer.

    Thanks for sharing this. I think it looks great for a first attempt and much better than I would do. I am trying to get into a little bit of restoration, but don't have many tools or much time. So on the odd occasion I have had to put new scales on a razor I have used micro bolts.

    Now that I have seen this thread and the lollipop sticks idea I might have to have a go at this too.
