This is a quick and easy way to mock up your scales, and finish sanding the wedge in for fitting. I use a set of adjustable pins to fit everything together to make sure the scales function with the razor, but I don't want to do any sanding or final fitting with the razor in the scales. So I made a tang jig to keep the scales together for final fitting of the wedge without the risk of a cut to yourself, or a chip to the razor... Just a 3/16 or 1/4 in thick piece of wood shaped like the tang of your razor will do.. Honest it just needs to be a piece of wood, you don't have to try and make it look like a tang and tail but hey it's more fun that way!
