New member/ 2nd. Generation switchblade lover

Postby Dave~weahunt » Sat Apr 14, 2018 10:35 pm

Hello. First thing I want to say is thanks for letting me join this group. I look forward to seeing all things this group has to offer. Like I wrote in subject box above I'm a 2nd. Generation switchblade lover! My Dad has collected switchblades since before I was born. I grew up with the fascination and overall love for the switchblade knife. My Dad is a collector of new switchblades. I too have several new switchblades but I also really like collecting old fixer-upper switches as well. I haven't done much to repair any of my fixers because I'm nervous about breaking something. I own a couple of vintage switches that I'd like to get some more information about.
First I have a old Keeper that I bought off a kid about 30 yrs. Ago that's always been in rough shape. I've kept it in a box since I bought it but I'm thinking about restoring it. It's pretty sad looking but I like it. I don't know how to send pics here yet so I'll describe it's issues. The push button is stuck in the handle and doesn't seem to come out. The safety slide is missing most of the head that comes out of the handle the spring comes out pretty easy and doesn't have much tension anymore. The handle has a crack in between the rivets from the the top rivets down past the push button down past safety slide to the bottom rivet. So with that said do you think it's restorable? If so do you have any suggestions about aquiring parts for it? Any help I can get regarding this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Hi Dave and welcome aboard! Lots of knowledgeable members here and lots of great talents as well. Imgur is a great photo sharing site. You may also find it easy to look just below your message/reply box (area) and find post reply written in red, then "attachments". Click that, browse your photos, then place "in line". You'll get the hang of it. Looking forward to seeing your collection and hearing what members here that certainly know their stuff, have to say. Again...welcome!

You're in trouble now, buddy. Not only have you joined the lunatics, but you have the temerity to call yourself Dave. You will get fear from people thinking you're that giant, ax-wielding one,or worse, ignored because of the loud-mouthed a$$hole one (me).
