First SAK Mod — Success!
« on: July 31, 2020, 11:31:37 PM »
I find myself using the scissors more than any other tool, and I’ve often considered making a scissors-only knife (along with a corkscrew, to nest the ever-handy micro screwdriver). It was a rainy day today, so I hitched up my trousers and decided to get after it.

It was fairly straightforward, and I only made one unrecoverable error: *after* I’d finished peening the center pin I realized I’d left the bushing off the back side. Oops!  Thankfully the scales are held securely by the end pins, I can live with this invisible mistake.

This was a pretty simple little project, but I’m inordinately pleased.

Nice!
Does the corkscrew on the scissors spring work well?

It works well enough. The corkscrew sits ever so slightly proud when closed, but not enough to matter, and there is a minor reduction in the closing tension of the scissors.

This is great!  I hear you on the utility of the scissors.  I use mine all the time, too and love the idea of pocket-friendly daily scissors setup.  Well done Frailer!

I should add that the task was made much easier for this novice by this marvelous little hammer I stumbled across at a flea market last year. The seller (a collector of old tools) and I couldn’t determine whether it was originally designed for a jeweler, a tinker, a child, or someone else. In any case, it is perfect for peening small pins.

It is indeed a beautiful thing, and it was love at first sight. I didn’t even haggle over the price (which, thankfully, was not unreasonable).
