IT FLIPS!! I think it's a good sign when a flipper flips without the detent ball snap. It should really fire nice when the blade is ground and lighter and the detent is functioning. Some may not like my exposed "flying stop pin" but that's how i designed it to keep the blade/handle ratio i wanted. It only shows for a split second! ;-)
I could have easily finished the first one today but as I qualified each part and operation, I made extra parts. That way after the first one is done, the next few will go quickly.
