    No it's not! We just need to find a razor that's about 10 feet long and takes 2"pins. That's all.

    Do what you wanna do, but I have learned to NOT beat on those...

    I shall explain.

    Recently I took on a couple of nice, original ones...(this is typical!)

    You can see that the pins were bent, slanted, collars seized and flattened and not disposed to tightening at all.........Whatsoever.

    Bust some scales trying for way too long to tighten by tapping.
    It becomes obvious after a bit. Tapping on a bent or slanted pin is like tapping on a spring...Scales in-between!

    You bring up a good point I hadn't thought of. I may wait until I've gotten some practice and do a repin. I like these bright red scales so I don't want to take any chances.
