I've heard that the 3 most important aspects of a folder are flat, flat, and very flat. This is what you can do when parts are flat... in the first vid, when I push the pieces together, most of the air is pushed out from between them causing a vacuum of sorts that is released by the air slowly seeping back in from the edges. In the second vid you can see how they slide across my surface plate like a hovercraft due to the same principal (thin layer of air trapped beneath not allowing contact until it can slowly seep out.
Oh... and hi guys and gals!! I'm still here. As most of you know, I'm in the process of changing gears and transitioning from modifications into my custom builds. I wanted my next post to be relevant to this, which is why I've been rather quiet on here for the last couple weeks. It's a slow process (for me) and I want to thank all of you for being so patient with me. ..THANK YOU! I'm very exited, to say the least!! #rottendesign #customknife #knifemaker #customknives #evolution #stillhere #newhorizons #funstuff #framelockfriday #framelock #ctsxhp #xhp #surfaceplate #FLAT #funwithscience #physics
