Re: Random shop pictures

How do those older Italian DA OTFs compare to others? Are they like the cheaper NATO types or are they more like the quality American ones?

Re: AGA 13" Batwing Problem

If you can take out (and replace) the top bolster pin and the two bottom bolster pins there are a few simple things you can do to make those ones fire much better.

Post them here where we can all see them and they will be saved for posterity (or at least for however long the image hosting sites decide to honor their commitments).

Re: Vintage Picklocks on a Budget

Were B.Svoboda stamped picklocks the only ones that had wood scales?

Post more pics. I'd like to see more of those old English parts if you have any of those.

Re: Very old BOKER 712

I recently picked up a similar German lever. It's a little different in that all the metal is steel (except for the NS lever). It has no "Springer" type word at the bottom bolster. On the tang, it has an upside-down "Overland/Germany/Solingen" stamp. On the blade there is a etch that while being nic...

Re: Value?

I retract my question about why the price was so high on that knife after seeing the same seller has a Korean Rizzy Clone for a start of $250 and buy out of $450. I believe I now have my answer....he's nuts! Actually, that seller it's too nuts. I've gotten a few good deals from him. He seems to lik...

Re: 11" Rosco Picklock

That is a great stamp. The only two Roscos I had had light, uneven stamps.

Re: Belt sander recommendations!!

If workshop real estate is an limited , you can do a surprising amount of work with the cheap 3"x18" they sell at any hardware store. Usually they are about $40 but they go on sale for about $25. Belts are cheap and easy to find and you can put the sander away when not working on them. It was a whil...

Re: Value?

I don't recall seeing any 13" pls with swedge blades. Though, that could be the blade from a transitional put on a picklock handle that happened to have all the holes line up.

One of the "A.G.A. Campolin dealers" on FB says he's got these Black Widow's on the way to sell. Warns a price in the $700 range.
My experience with those statements is that "on the way" means "most likely never".
