Yes, you will have to make the notch bigger for it to lock and also so it can open far enough to be inline with the handle. Take your time and I think you'll be fine. The best way to mark it is to lay the Rebar file on top and use it to mark with a fine tip Sharpie. You can use a drill bit to help line up the holes while you mark it.

Cool, thanks for the info Steve :salute:

I decided to use the file from my old original PST to check to see if it would lock. I didn't want to use my diamond file but they are the same profile.

Notch



Lock up



I made the notch just a hair wider than the Rebar file taking a bit more off the back where the rounded portion is.  The file does lock up
with just a little play. It is a really hard to deploy without a nail nick. I think it would work better to swap positions with the the knife blade. You would then have the cut out in the handle for the file and the nail nick would still be on the right side for the knife blade.

The more I think about it Steve the more the swapping of the file and blade make sense :salute:

The PST/PST II file fits but has to be grinded on a little to make it work properly  :salute: I have one of these files in a Blast and had to grind it similar to what would fit the Rebar :tu: due to the way it is made for the PST II it slips out of the lock even after grinding but if the tool is closed that isn't a problem, plus this type of file never locked in the tools they were designed for anyways :D

I am actually the owner of the file that Steve cut to fit now and it has been great :woohoo: it fits very well, locks up nice and it really is hard to beat the diamond file :tu: :like:
