I found another place to buy a brass pin stock and brass tubing. Last weekend we had a Hobby Lobby open up in our town. My wife and I went down there and I was very impressed with the assortment of adhesives they had. It was without a doubt the best assortment of adhesives I have seen under one roof. They even carried the Bob Smith Industries 5 Minute Epoxy, which is the best epoxy I have found. I’ve been using it almost exclusively for about 8 years and I haven’t had a handle failure that I can recall since I started using it.
They also have a good selection of K & S Metals brass pin stock in the smaller sizes. I was also surprised to find small brass tubing. They had 3/64” and 1/16” brass tubing. This is useful when replacing some of the clevis or bail on some of the older scout type knives that used a brass tube to hold the clevis on and then a small nickel silver pin that went through the tube and had a head spun on the end of the nickel silver pin.
I have no connection with, or stock in Hobby Lobby.
I just found they had a great selection of things that can be difficult to find when doing knife repairs.
If you’re having difficulty finding brass pins and brass tubing and have a Hobby Lobby near you, you might check it out.
Sadly however, I did not find any nickel silver pin stock at all.
