Scale Inlay's

have had a couple of itches to scratch on Ideas for some of my folders. I have wanted to do some unusual inlays with an epoxy fill and also some intricate puzzle pieces.

first folder I carved the Oregon State University Beaver logo onto some Orange G10 and then, back filled with some tinted epoxy. didn't turn out too bad but I will need to find something else the tint the epoxy with other than the aniline die I had on hand. the black seemed to want to bleed a little till i sealed it with thin cynalacrilate glue. it turned out as a good first attempt but needs some work.


next is and idea I have wanted to try with a key hole inlay and a large pivot pin in the center. took a lot of hand fitting even after cutting out the pieces on my cnc. it too has a lot of potential in the future.

booth folders are 6" long
410 SS liners
O1 back spring

That's cool. Did you cut the holes for the inlays with your cnc?

Chris, I cut the male and female key with the cnc and then did the final fitting by hand. I did drill a 3/32 hole in the middle of the male key to center both scale in relation to the pivot point.

I guess you get to claim you in part helped me make is folder because it was YOU that helped me make my first folder 5 years ago with your folder dvd! Thank you!
