Sword Cane Almost Complete

Scott should finish his latest sword cane project in the next few days.
Here are a few shots that show final installation of the throat and sheath.

First Scott glues the throat to the sheath.

Then he coats the top and interior sides of the throat with Vaseline 
to protect these areas from glue during installation.

Next, the parts he wants to glue into the shaft are cleaned with acetone. 

West Systems epoxy with filler is the medium that holds all the internal parts firmly together. 

Scott applies epoxy to the sides of the sheath and
the act of pushing it slowly into the shaft fills the cavity.

After a final cleaning with acetone, the sheath and throat installation is complete.

 Almost done! More pictures soon.
