One-hand on a Juice 7842

I have been working on similar modifications.  I have taken a Juice apart by grinding out the rivets.  I was not able to get the rivets out without damaging the aluminium scales.  One of the interesting things that I learned was how the tools are constructed.  The pliers part is built into a single piece of steel that forms a U then each of the outside tools is built into a L shaped bracket the attaches to the U.  So cutting away the L shape will not weaken the pillars.  I attempted to use brass rod for the pivot points, but peened the one too hard and now the screwdrivers are difficult to get out.  Next step is to figure out a thumb stud and pocket clip.  I will also need to determine if the brass is strong enough for the pliers.  I should also note that one of my goals was to eliminate the corkscrew layer.  The rivet for the corkscrew only attaches to the outside layer and does not go through to the pliers layer.

Excellent point ral, I see now what you mean. Very good observation, and kudos on the mod job! 8)

OK 3 bits down and still not a scratch ont he blade. Def sent me a great little stud that screams Juice.

Any sug on how to get a hole in the blade without having to retemper?

Laser beam? :D

Seriously, I think I'd do it on a drill press with LOTS of oil... but then that may be why I'm not a professional! :D

I'm glad it got there safe and sound! :D

I wont be giving up on this. I have allready milled the scale and I got to get the hole done right. I really got to go to the store and buy a crapload of cutting fluid and bits.

Hawk, the most important thing will be to use a drill press, not a hand drill. You want the hole to be straight and round, not all wallered out like a hand drill is likely to do.

Also clamp the blade down onto a sacrificial piece of wood so it can't move around. Use the slowest possible RPM's, and use some sort of light oil.

After the trouble I had just drilling through a Charge pocket clip I can imagine how difficult it will be to go through the blade. Best of luck to you hawkchucker.

I just started reading this thread and wondered if anyone has tried solid carbide bits.

They are the only way to go if you actually want to drill hardened stainless and not wear a hole through it.

They are really expensive but you can get a pretty decent discount on them if you buy lots.   

Solid carbide is super brittle and they shatter easily so you can ONLY use them on a drill press.   

I think the spade tip ones are best for drilling a pilot hole and then the fluted ones can be used to open it up.   

You get the most bang for the buck that way.   I can usually get a couple pilots out of the first bit and several uses out of the fluted ones if I'm careful.


I'll pick up a juice and see if I can get through the blade.

I found that I can almost one hand the S2 as is if I lube up the pivot sufficiently.  It's almost good enough.

I'm really wanting the Juice to be more usable.  I love the Skeletool as you all know, but I find myself wanting a Juice-sized MT with one-handedness & locking implements in a very bad way.  LM folks, is this something you've considered?
