2020-03-07 (Sa) Electro Knife for Simulated Combat EleKSCo

In my handle design, I included rounded corners. The first step was to cut aluminum stock to length, then I trimmed off the corners. As best I could, the angles were forty-five degrees, but that was hopeful. After trimming, I rounded the edges on a belt sander.

With a drill press, I made three 9/16" (14mm) holes at the indicated locations. For simplicity, the holes going into the knife blade were 3/4" (19mm) apart.

Despite the hanging wires, everything fit between the metal bars through friction, or with a little help from some double-sided tape. At present, the design did not include a switch.
Assembled but cumbersome
