View Full Version : Knifemaker or skilled tradesman needed
11-03-2004, 11:04 PM
Anyone reading this that has a tap set and is confident in fixing a problem for me?? :-D
I got a John Matthes folder that has a stripped out thumbdisk on it and needs the disc remounted by perhaps retapping the blade
Should be easy if you got the tool. I may need to order a new screw from somewhere or even a new disc. Whatever it takes...

I have the tools but not the skills (Just ask Bendibble :help: )

I would love to help if only i were home (dangit)
Benny has the skills, it just may take longer than expected due to unexpwcted SNAFU's. Umm by the way, what exactly is the status on the handles?

I have a pretty decent tap that does a few different sizes, not sure how easy it is to tap hardened stainless steel tho. tapping soft metals like aluminum is very easy tho and a good tap and turn thingy would probably only cost like $10 if you only needed the one size.

I have a tap set, just not the size I need. I just want to send it to someone and receive it fixed. I am willing to pay :-D

TBG, I'm a toolmaker by trade. I can fix it for you :) You have got my address; I won the Delta-Z. Received knife yesterday, very pleased, thanks again. I'll post a picture of it sometime Friday. Question: how do I put a pic from the Gallery into a post.

Hey man, THANKS!!!! I don't think I have your address still though, Please drop me a PM and I will get it in the mail tomorrow Thanks :)

yes we toll and die makers can be very handy. the tap would not be very expensive. simple drill out and retap. simple
