Stupid question, but i got 2.5 mm thingies and i need to get them all three down to sub 2.25 mm, I have tried most things (usually including it being the 'bit' in a powertool to rotate the thingie fast while sanding it).

I cant really get any where, do i use too fine of a  paper for it? i only got 800 and finer paper. Any advice would be grateful as i feel im stuck at an easy step of the whole really fun adventure!  :climber:

I use 100-200 grit mainly for smoothening and a metal file for thinning. I'd say that you need to be more aggressive on the rod thingys.  :whistle:
And yes, I spin them on the drill.
Good luck.  :cheers:
Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

How about deleting the brass pins/bushings and using M2 X10mm panhead screws with corresponding nuts to put my SAK back together?
Anyone try this? :think:

Thank-you. :hatsoff: 

However you did make me look to see when I first wrote this and I suddenly feel a lot older than I did five minutes ago.  :-\

People have. The scales clip nicely onto the bushings.   :shrug:   Welcome to the boards nik.   :cheers:

Very cool, this makes it so much easier than reading 10 different threads covering 10 different aspects of modding.  I may even give this a go sometime soon.  If I may make a suggestion, can you please clarify the pin diameters for each frame size, just so there's no confusion? e.g.

91mm: 2.5mm outer, 2.2mm (2.25) center
84mm: ?
74mm: ?
58mm: ?

What about sizes for Wenger 85mm knives?

Charles.
