I am working on making some scales for my first restore project and I have a few questions. I am working with linen micarta right now. I have canvas micarta and G10 as well. After reading up, I decided the linen would be best to start with. I already F'd up my first attempt and would like to not mess it up again.
My problem is how to reduce the thickness evenly. The blanks I got are 1/8" thick and I want to reduce the thickness by maybe 30-40%. My first attempt I tried using the sanding drum on my dremel but it was so uneven and I got too deep around one of the edges and it's beyond usable for as nice of a razor that I am restoring.
My power tools are limited to a dremel, drills and saws. Don't have a belt sander.
Any suggestions? Only thing I can think of is something like the scale between a block of someone something flat with sand paper on it, kind of like lapping but with the scale in between. But would need something on the block to keep the scale stuck to it, like rubber or something
