    thats the place i get mine
    and they use 2-56 screws

    you can also get smaller screws but 1/8 inch is the smallest pivot setup i have seen

    Charlie's link is where I get mine. Be advised that you will need to drill a 1/8" hole for the pivot to fit the 1/8" pivot barrel which you will also need to cut to width and make sure it's flush with both sides of the tang. If not you'll have to find washers with a wide enough diameter to fit the barrel if it's sticking out. Be very carful when trying to drill a 1/8" hole in your pivot. make sure the razor is clamped thigh and secure.

    yep 1/8 inch hole
    but i also do the scales in 1/8 hole also and let the pivot go through the whole works (must not have the puvot flush with the handle tho as then you cant tighten the pivot up at all )

    so rather than grind the barrel to the tang I should make it even with the face of my scales?

    There's 2 ways to use the barrel. Llike I explained or like Butch does partly because he's a custom maker and it's easier to put everything together when you do it all from blade to scales. A brand new custom made straight razor is usually straight. Most vintage razors can have some tang issues. In that case if you go straight to the outside of the scales you will encounter problems centering the blade as there is no play. I have found it easier to do it my way on most vintage straight razors. Both ways work, you just have to find what works best for you.

    I usually saw it in 2 with my dremel (metal cutting wheel) as I can use 1 barrel twice. I use my belt sander to sand/cut to width. The grinder could work but I'll make sure not to use the fastest speed and also clamp that barrel onto something so you don't end cursing trying to find it while crawling around on your hand and knees.
