The threads were pitted on the backside so I replaced it with a brass bolt and a small peice of wood until I find a new one.

Me too Don. You can’t tell too well, but I polished the blade front and back to a mirror finish. Made a huge difference with looks and performance.

I did the same thing with my iron… full polish front and back. Why? Because the blade was so small it was easy and quick.
Nice job on the restore. I love my #101…
