I've heard many a recommendation to drill slightly larger holes than the pins you will be using so I was curious, what size drill bit would you recommend for 1/8" and 1/4" pins? Also, if you feel strongly against doing this, what do you recommend to make the fitting of the handle together to go easier?

Thanks,

Pete

1/8" = wire size 30 or 29 drill bit
1/4 = Letter size drill F

Hope this helps.

Happy to help. I know when I figured this out it made life alot easier and knife making even more fun! Sanding down every pin to size can be a pain.

Have fun
