I would like some help/advice with my first modding plans.

I want to make a "maxed out" flight version of the minichamp (basically remove the two blades and reshuffle the remaining components accordingly).

I also want to figure out a way to take a cybertool 34 and add the 58mm combo tool (bottle opener/phillips head piece) and either the 74mm or 58mm orange peeler to it, and likely remove the scissors as well.

I think it would be neat to take a 91mm small blade and cram it into a minichamp as well, also removing the two native blades in the process. Is that feasible.

TIA for any/all advice

EDIT: Instead of a maxed out flight minichamp, I would like to take a jetsetter 3 (combo-phillips + scissors, t&t), and replace the toothpick scale with a pen scale, and the scissors with the 58mm orange peeler + ruler/sd tip (any recommendations how to turn the other side of that into a file like they should have done from day 1?). Is there any way to modify a default 58mm scale to hold both the toothpick and the tweezers? parallel diagonal is what I'm thinking, but I bet those rivets would get in the way.

I can't answer many of your questions but I do know that Syph007 was working on a solution for bringing the T&T together with a light and pen in the 58mm. It's not what you were asking for but it does allow you to bring all the 58mm scale tools. See link

As for the ruler/SD I would recommend going from the other direction, adding a ruler to a file with SD-tip should be much easier (some sort of etching preferably).

I'm trying to replace the main blade on a Angler (91mm), I'm looking for screw pivots to replace the rivets once I remove them.


Do these only work with the Alox models, and if they would work with the Angler how do I ensure that their long enough (they don't list the measurement units on the site).

Alternatively, I'll just use the regular pins in the guides.

You will find that the pins on the 91 mm SAKs are a mix of 2.5 and 2.2 mm, quite a bit smaller than 1/8". Unless you have the tools to drill the holes pinning will be the way to go.

Does anyone know how to coat the victorinox's blade black, I've tried the FeCl3 solution as a test and it didn't work. Sorry for my bad english  :D

The guides listed in this sticky have been inspirational and will hopefully be invaluable.

...but, some of them are rather out of date what with the lack of photos coming through from Photobucket. Maybe it's time for an update: either re-adding the original photos or advising in the original post which guides now lack photos.

I'm sure the ones that no longer have photos will still be useful though. Well, I hope so! Either way, I'm grateful for their existence.
