"Got A Bit Further Today"

Hi all,
Had a few minutes today and was able to press the 1/16 detent ball into the frame lock mechanism.
I also milled a notch in the blade, drilled and taped a hole #2-56 to accept the thumb wheel.
I'm sitting here now flipping it open and closed, great fun....:)
Next I need to finish surface grind the blade to the final thickness to allow for 2 phosphor bronze washers to be fitted on each side of the blade. After that I'll need to add the blade angles, and send it off to be heat treated.
Enjoy, Kenn

Thanks Gary,
Yes this is my 1st attempt at any type of knife. Went with a folder as that's what I prefer to carry. I also like the size, sits nice in your front pocket.
