cock jaws screwdriver combo tool
« on: February 24, 2017, 09:50:08 AM »
a really neat combo tool for tightening/loosening the cock jaws on yer flinter and the "T" handle has both blunted and pointed ends that work great for tapping a gun flint edge to sharpen it.  it's blade is fine enuf for those really narrow slot jaws screws.  bargain priced at $15/shipped.  you need one of these nifty tools!

you do not need a paypal account to pay via a CC.  he also does check/MO snail mail.

I know... I just do NOT like or want PP to have my information... just me... something from their past, I don't wish to support them in any form... but I'll remember the snail mail MO approach... thanks!

Since I was the last poster on this topic, I felt it imperative that I emailed Kyle, owner of Old Dominion Forge and we reviewed my consternation with Paypal even to give them my CC information.  He graciously allowed a snail mail order and payment process that suited me fine...hey, I'm old! :)

I hope to have my Combo Tool come next week.

Happy Easter everyone!

Never checked back here to report....got my tool and had to actually file down the blade tip to thicken it as the cockj aw screw slot was thicker then the end of the tool  driver blade, so I filed it some to fatten/thicken it to fit...

The pointy end fits nicely into the hole in the cock jaw head and once it's as tight as I can twist it with the screw driver, I inserted the pointy part and got another "TWEAK" tighter...

Fine took...serves well as even an "On gun" knapping tool to sharpen the flint...
