    Jan 13, 2006, 11:51 PM - MY shin tools so far #1

    I spent the day working on these
    made from a real Paterson Squeegee, a couple of X-acto knives, a spatula (wife's not pleased), some paint & tape
    Still needs to be weathered,
    What do you guys think?

    i was at a wedding in proper highland garb, and when the cake cutting came around, no knife was to be found. i stepped up to the couple, pulled the sgian dubh from my sock, and the ceremony progressed.

    why am i telling this story? because i got a vision of boba fett in the audience of a cooking show. they are making a cake, and have no spatula. boba fett walks up, hand them the spatula-tool, and walks away, never saying a word.

    perhaps this will be less entertaining to me when i've gotten some sleep

    Crud...
    I just found out I made the ESB anti-security blade.
    Not the ROTJ one that I need
    The ROTJ has a Red stripe (no biggie) & a longer blade (biggie)
    *thanx to lonepigeon for the ref pic*

    at the risk of sounding cliche, I would know.

    besides, the longer spatula blade makes the tool stick out of the pocket more.
    I'll have to install them & see how it looks.

    Can it be modified to be the ROTJ one? Or is that impossible? If you have to start from scratch, I'll gladly buy that one from you, so you dont take a loss.

    slave1,

    awesome job. just wondering where you got your paterson. I know places online that sell them, but i'm just wondering if you lucked out and found something local or got a deal on it somewhere. if you could PM that'd be cool.

    again, nice work and glad to see the "scratch build" photos.

    What type of x-acto knife did you use for the security blade? Did you do anything to them (cutting/drilling)?

    Don't recall the Brand.
    I'm pretty sure they were the Harbor Freight kind in the plastic box.
    I had to cut them to size & notched the little divots with the Dremel.

    Thanks, I noticed the holes/notches and didn't think they were part of the knife (sounds stupid huh!) but wanted to make sure...
