I see you read & commenting on knife repair threads.
Knife repair & restoration is FAR MORE ADDICTING than just knife collecting!
You will stop buying new knives and just buy parts knives in hopes that you can repair them.
Seriously, repair is more enjoyable to me than jus collecting.

Also you used 1/16' pins and state that the pins you removed were .070"........ 1/16" pins are .063" so you have .007" slop correct? So when you peen the pin, the slack is taken up in the hole in the blade or not? I fullt understand that you need a spacer in between the blade and the liner otherwise the blade will jam when you peen it.
