I don't want to diss anyone, but most of these came from an ex-mechanic, I'm afraid he wasn't very good at it. It doesn't look like he did any permanent damage, but I'll have to do quite a bit of backtracking to end up with acceptable results. Like the knife Royal mentioned, a mish mash of blades,(Camillus, others?) but I have Remington blades to put back in it. As far as the Scout knife, the blade is new, but will be removed and replaced with a proper blade and the current blade also used in a Scout of the correct timeline and condition. Sometimes it can take months or even years to find the right parts for a knife, sometimes you never will. This particular batch are ones I've spent quite a bit of time tracking down the right parts to repair them, I have many more in the shop that I'm still looking. The one exception is the UCC hobo, finding parts for that one just seems highly unlikely for any reasonable amount of money. I'd love to be able to put original blades back in it and I may keep looking, but...
Bob, I'll let ya know on that R/W/B Scout. The handles are in great shape, but having to tear it all the way down is always risky with plastic slabs.
The welding, I do myself but have to go down to my brothers machine shop in Ft. Smith to do it.
Thanks Jerry, by the grace of God, life is much better now then it has been over the past couple of years.
Thanks again all,
