Scale problems


Upto now I have never had a problem with the scales of a gold dollar. Well never say never.
This morning I made some scales as a replacement, still needs final pinning as you can see

I will ad some more posts later on the pinning



This situation needs to be addressed or the blade will have an ugly chip at the toe if you don’t watch out.
Plastic Scales could be heated to get them aligned again with the blade but if that doesn’t work you will need to find out if it’s a problem of the blade or the scales. Unpin and check if the current scales can still be used. You might be able to slightly widen the holes of the pivot pin and add a washer to be able to center the blade. You could even sand the scales on the inside near the pivot hole to alleviate the problem.
