Is the shiny black smooth part the tip? Or is that part of the Vault plate?
I'll check it for him if he ever swallows his pride eneogh to show me. If he's one of those over dramatic arrogant people.Vault plate. But the kicker is that Mike Webb put on a pad and a short white ferrule on this shaft for my son who wanted a white ferrule for sighting. It also servered a great purpose to make the hit a bit softer and less pingy like a stock Revo shaft is without adding more deflection. The man is a genius hehe. This is what makes this tip job all the more ludicrous because not only did the guy cut into the vault plate, he also seemingly cut off the work Mike did and decided that the tip should be indented to the ferrule LOL
About one sided bevels. McMasters li'l yellow hardware book will fix you up with the blades for utility knives. Also get a handle that clamps down securely on the blade, a nonretractable variety.
I've never seen a single bevel utility blade. Single edge, yes, but not single bevel.
Found them when dave was going to do his own tips I believe. Pretty sure McMaster Carr has them available, not absolutely sure of the supplier after this long. There are single bevel exacto knife blades too. Either one to do tips has to be locked firmly to the handle.
I just use a standard bevel on a high quality razor knife blade and rest it on an angled block to take away the negative rake created by the bevel. I think the bevel on the knlife blade is twelve degrees but I had a nine degree bevel handy and that was enough to take away any issues with the negative bevel. Might dull a little quicker but I mark a blade before every tip job and after three tips I use that blade still in excellent condition for general shop work.
Without a lathe running I used a draw knife to do my last tips on my personal shafts. Sharp enough to cut just the same with and against the grain of wood and single bevel. If pushed I can do a tip job with anything really sharp and some things that ain't! Sold my last metal lathe and wood lathes and cue lathes are in storage.
Maybe?I've never seen a single bevel utility blade. Single edge, yes, but not single bevel.
Yes, he did realize he messed up on it, I just don't know how it got so far without him stopping and thinking "wait, something looks off here". My friend was not very happy, and pretty sure is going to put the cost of the repair on the guy.This is the crappiest tip replacement job I've ever seen. And he returned it like that?
