    ^^^ I need to get one of those measured marking mats. I'm sure it helps with layout.

    It's definitely helps. Was skeptical about the self healing but it works. Get the one that spins so you don't have to move what your working on too much

    Good looking kit..... though I'd find some better way of securing the anvil to the stand. Those hanger straps stand out like a sore thumb! :D

    needed a tool to pull bundles of line thru rope sheaths......so I made this out of 1/4"round stock, via a file and hand held drill and vice and auto body paper.

    Found a flaring tool set today at an outside flea market. Made in USA. Not the highest quality set, but beats having nothing. Excited about flaring in some lanyard tubes.

    So with that tool the pressure on the two "hooks" that go around the back side would probably dent wood, and possibly mess up other handle materials. So after the scales are on and the fitting tool fits, (the knife actually fits inside the flair tool)do you make a piece of metal that goes across the backside to protect the handle while flairing? And it the flair tool does not fit, (the knife handle will not fit in the flair tool) more likely, how do you flair the other side once completed?
    I'm thinking about making a knife from a blank and love the tube look. Just curious.

    I plan on flaring one side before putting into handle. After epoxy has set, trim, and flare the other side us sing the drill press. Yet remains to see if that will work.

    I thought about attaching a flair cone to a c clamp.

    Do you have a bench vise? Mine has holes in it that would accept a flaring bit. A large c clamp would probably work as well.

    Not sure if it matters, but I think standard flaring tool angle is 45 degrees and an aviation flaring tool is 37 degrees. I think. I know they are different. It would be a subtle difference.
