    Hey people, I recently got a Hom Rhapsody but am having a bit of trouble tightening down the safe handle as it has a bit of play. Thing is, no matter how much I tighten the damn thing, is still taps the blade. Sooooo, would anyone know if the squidindustries hardware set (pivot set ) would fit my Rhapsody? Was thinking since I probably need a new pivot set, might as well color it up and swap out the spacers as well......anyhow, any help would be much appreciated !

    Ps, just saw on the squidindustries site that some pivots fit the Hom models but thought I'd ask here if anyone has tried such a thing....thanks again !

    I bet there is loctite caked at the bottom preventing you from tightening it down. I've had it happen to me. Go to the drug store and get a pack of small dental brushes and try to clean out the pivot.

    Hey thanks ! But I forgot to mention that I left both pivots in acetone for 1 hour and scrubbed the insides with the a toothbrush and broke a crossman AND a wiha t10 screwdriver doing all of this......the links on getting hardware for this trainer on the Hom site confuse me a bit, and aren't the same ones that came on it, so I figured I would go with another brand and color

    Well damn. Beats the hell out of me then. Message Jerry and see if he will sell you some new pivots. Click the contact link on his site.

    Your problem is most likely an oversized bushing.

    Or an undersized washer. You can get different sized washers at USA knife maker.com but you need a set of calipers to know

    oops I used my real name moderators help
