Re: Need Detent Ball Bearing for Sweep Mode Switch


Hi Gordan,

I really don't know any local knife makers but thanks for the idea. It really isn't the cost so much as having a small stash of ball bearings that I'm fairly sure I'd never use more than one or two more - ever.

Hi Barry,
One option to consider is to ask around the local knife making enthusiasts
and seeing if one of them will work with you on purchasing a group of ball

get the rest for making a Damascus knife. A win/win for everyone :). Just a

Yeah, I've found a few places but they're 25 or more. Not really that big
a deal and if I don't find one or two, then I'll get a pack. In any case,

"cleaning up" and now not having what's missing. I should've known a blank
spot for that bearing would turn up eventually.
