Probably done to death. But my newly clipped crunch
on: September 19, 2021, 06:51:43 AM
This one is probably done many times. But it was a bit unnerving because it was a brand new Crunch.

The clip is from a Rev, Sidekick, Wingman, but it didn't come from a tool. I bought it for doing this little project.

I was inspired by Aaron Mooney in the facebook groups.

I'm not sure I've seen one with that particular clip. I think wspeed's is a Kick clip.  :think:

With the right drill and tap set the clip from the Free could be added too. It would look beautiful although the steel is quite hard. I broke two bits and didn't make much progress. I read somewhere online that a masonry bit would work. I didn't believe it but had a go because I ran out of bits.

It took some lubrication and patience but it did the trick.

First I have seen with the Sidekick/Wingman clip :salute: the Free Clip would probably be a good direction to take as well :cheers:

Great mod :like:

I just don't have the tools for such precision drilling and tapping job. But would love to see one with that clip.

Drilling isn't that hard but I can't get it to tap and I broke the first tap I bought and haven't bought another :whistle: :facepalm: :oops:

Would the drilling be easy due to n abundance of masonry bits  :pok:

You probably have a press drill. I did that with an 18V one.  :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

My HSS got blunt quite quickly.

No drill press I just use a battery hand drill for everything  :cheers: I had one bit that would barely scratch the stainless :facepalm: then I had a kit of drill bits and the correct size of that one went straight through the handle  :o :D

First post, but i saw this and had to try it with an old rev. The picture doesnt want to post, but i flipped the chicago screw, put a 632 screw and washer and made the locking notch with a carbide dremel bit

Tip for tapping (excuse the pun): I find stainless steel to be a bit hard on those taps that cut the whole thread in one go. I prefer the old-fasioned sets of three with increasing thread depth.
