Product Description

1/4" Corby Bolt Starter Pack

This starter pack is everything you need to start using Corby Bolts;

  •  10 x Corby Bolts, 1/4" in brass or stainless steel (See options)
  •   1 x 4.6 mm drill bit for the centre section of the bolts
  •   1 x 6.4 mm drill bit for the shoulder/outside section of the bolt

 

Corby bolts are an attractive and strong way to attach scales to the blade. The corby bolts are 28 mm long for brass or 25 mm long in steel, 8 mm in the centre section, each shoulder is 10 mm long for brass or 8 mm for the steel ones.

 

Process:

  • Clamp the scales to the blade
  • Drill a 4.6 mm hole through both scales and blade
  • Counter-sink each hole in the outside of the handle scales only, with the 6.4 mm drill bit
  • Leave enough material in the bottom of the scales for the bolt to grab securely on to
  • Generally the scales are both glued and screwed on rather than only using Corby bolts
  • Screw in the corby bolts securely. They will stick out above the scales
  • When the epoxy is dry, file the corby bolts down until flush with the handle scales. This removes the screwdriver slot and they become 1/4" diameter brass circles in the handle
  • Shape handle scales as normal and sand to desired finish
