Title: S.A.K. Ferro rod scale.
Post by: xj35s on April 14, 2020, 11:05:19 AM
I wanted to post this here. I think this is as perfect as this is going to get. Let me know if you would want one of these or if it's kind of stupid. I designed this for me because I'm never without my SAK.
I changed the profile of the handle and added some better grips. I also added little insets for rare earth magnets to ensure the rod doesn't fall out once it has been used a lot and loses it's friction fit.
This only fits the 91mm Victorinox and holds a 1/8" x 2" ferro rod.

I somehow missed this earlier.  After looking at it I don't quite understand what I am looking at. My problem is probably because I cannot tell where the ferro rod is in the drawing and have no size reference.

Okay, that makes sense. The ferro rod epoxies into the small nub and slides into the scale. here's an earlier design I actually printed. I eliminated the two very sharp corners on the nub/handle in the new design.

I see how it works now.  I am interested in one.  Let me know either here or with a message how much and what colors are available.  Black is good and orange would be good too.  If a ferro rod is included that is fine, if not let me know what size rod it takes.  Thanks
