That's great! I like that skeletoning pattern. That's using all the holes in the knifekits template, right? Pretty nice work.

Nice job Troy! http://ckdforums.com/images/icons/icon14.gif Sweet!

That's a lot of holes to drill. Did you use a drill press or do 'em by hand?

I used my mini mill . But still takes a while to get all the holes.

Sure you can get the location that you want center punch for the hole. clamp handle to drill press and drill . use a small shape drill bit.

Thanks Troy. I'm actually planning on taking it a step further by drilling holes into the inserts as well. Which will probably mean I have to pin the inserts in place instead of just using epoxy.

how come you'd have to pin them?

Less surface area for the epoxy. And it doesn't help that I'm removing the meat of the contact area...
