Nice gear. What kind of knife is that?

It's a Michael Raymond Starlit. It's an integral and probably my favorite knife.

Re: Photos of Mac's EDC Lights

So I've had a stripped clip hole on my orange tri, and have tried twice to fill with epoxy and re-tap the threads to no avail. Second hole finally gave out too. So, just tapped to 6-32. Waiting for proper screws to get here, but these will do for now. I put on a modified ex11 clip that was a bit more flexible and will put less stress on the threads.

They make heilcoil inserts in 4-40 size. Loctite them in and they're not going anywhere.

might try that if I ever lose threads in one of my coppers. This is my only Aluminum with a clip, so I really don't expect any other failures :)

Very resourceful!
