    My buddy had a loose kydex sheath and asked if I could tighten it up. I have an old press that I bought years ago from Knifekits. It works, but I never liked how it hinges on the back side. The foam was pretty worn out, so I need to replace it.

    I was bored, so I drew up my idea for a press. I had everything in my shop except for the channel, Acme nut and ball ends for the handle.
