Syph, how do you compensate the difference in thickness when you put the cap lifter across from the phillips?  Washer?  Custom liner?

Washer.  It's always important to make sure the total thickness is just slightly bigger then the spring thickness too so the spring moves easily.  All the back spring are slightly thinner athan the ends vs middle for this reason too.

PM me or email sakmodder [at] gmail . com if you are looking for custom SAK work.

Great to know, and thanks!

One other question - did you have to modify the phillips to keep it from touching the opener on this model, or did you just let the phillips ride a little high to keep it off?

The pivot of the phillips needs to be reshaped and that dictates how high it sits.  Its mostly trial and error to get it to sit just right.
