    Hi, i resently purchased a beautiful stock tach 2 black bowie.

    The only issue i found with it is... I can simply push the tangpins out with my thumb.
    They kind of *click* in position but they come out really easy. And Iam just super scares to lose them!



    I tried super glue but it seems to be too brittle.

    Does anyone have a similar problem?

    And does someone have a solution or a good idea?


    I would be very grateful! Ty!

    Good Question:
    This is a Matt Cook ( pinoy knife ) or Jason Lyons ( Blackmetal1181 ) question ,, who may give this thread advice if they come across it . But me with no advice I would first try to center them and squeeze them in a vise just a hair to expand them . in theory that should work But if your vise is not true you could bend or flat top the pins ,,which also is a good point what is the metal pins made out of too soft/hard metal??? ..Forewarned I have broken things trying to fix them many a time and this was the first and only thing I could come with with out having the knife in my hand .there will be other answers from other members with maybe better advice so...............................

    I would have uploaded pictures but all the files are to big, i guess my camera is too good lol.
    I think its hard metal!
    Squeezing them to expand them sounds like a really good idea!

    Thank you very much!

    I've heard red loctite will hold them for a while.

    so the biggest problem is the tang pin is stepped to size then pressed into the blade.so pushing the pin in works for a very short time. you can not expand this type of pin since there is a shoulder/step making the tang pin stop in the blade. it requires new tang pins made on a latheto fix it correctly

    Loctite 609, referred to as "green Loctite", is made to hold bearings and bushings in place. Brownell's carries it to lock sights into dovetail slots. It might work, butt* to be honest, I've never tried it for this.

    It's classed as medium hold, so it will be possible to disassemble later, if needed.

    It's available at other places too. Like amazon, and ebay.

    I think this could be the easiest quick fix. I worked at a machine shop and when boring sprockets to press fit bearings if it was 0.001 over the bearing wouldn’t press in. We would use this on those occasions. We had one that was even 0.005 that we used it on out of curiosity and after setting it required a lot of heat before it would come out.

    I’ve been looking for a nice tachyon 2 is this a common issue with them?
