Thread: Customizing a Blade Hoder question

    Default Customizing a Blade Hoder question

    Hi Sabersmiths,
    EDIT: Ha ha. Obviously, it's supposed to say Blade HOLDER in the subject. Oh well... Hodor, Hodor.

    I wanted to get some advice about modifying a specific Blade Holder. I have BH 25

    What do you think would be a good way to cut out the small flutes at the tip of the holder? Multiple drill holes and then file them out?

    Those are pretty small. Definitely start by drilling some holes. If you have a jeweler's saw, that might work for cutting them out. Some needle files to clean them up afterwards.
    We all have to start somewhere. The journey is all the more impressive by our humble beginnings. for the lazy man's resistor calculator! for getting resistor values the right way!

    Use a drill press and a bit thats smaller than the groove, drill a few holes in line and a needle file to clean up. I would not use a saw and certainly nothing thats powered, like a Dremel.

    You *could* ask Tim if he would be willing to make the modifications you want to that specific blade holder. He would be able to tell you how feasible it is.

    Thanks for the tips so far. If I do this, it won't be easy. Ha ha, I guess I should have planned what I wanted to do more before I bought the blade holder.

    FJK; That's always a good suggestion, but I'm trying to keep the costs down at the moment.

    I have that holder coming in a few days... I thought the same thing about opening up those grooves..
    At most I think I’ll use the press and open the bottom so light can pass
