Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Tommy

Great bayo and glad all worked out for you. When mounted on your No. 1 you can reach into Virginia with it!
Any thoughts where I could get a frog for my 1907 scabbard?

Are you looking for leather or khaki web?

Let me go look.
I'm looking for one as well.
Would a decent repro work for you if I can find one?

I have one of the green ones, but its on my No9 bayonet. (Terrible fit, the top of the bayonet mount is nowhere near & below the upper loop!) They're erroneously called Pat 58 bayonet frogs & are post WW2.
They are right about it being an absolute bugger to get it to attach though!
Can you specify color I wonder?

Color does not matter to me...prefer Green>Tan>Blue.

I have a green canvas frog for my No. 4 SMLE spike but wanted one for the P1907 also ( center of pic )

I think I'm going to go with this bad boy.
Its a repro, but supposedly a well made one.

Will do.
I gave the bayonet & scabbard a bit of a birthday. Nothing too drastic, but the active rust is gone, I ended up having to use a brass brush on a Dremel!
The leather has had 2 wipe downs with some Pure Neetsfoot oil & 2 coats of modem day "boot black" equivalent, "Shine-Rite scufff 'n shine".
The blue has been touched up a little & the wood wiped with denatured & then given a coat or 2 of BLO.
Lots of WD-40 & a razor blade got rid of the fossil tape glue as well.

other side.
I was going to re-blue the button, but on reflection is normal usage wear being a protruding bit so I left it as is.

I know nothing about them, but it looks like a great pickup!

I’ll tell you this though ... WHO puts more markings on their arms than the British?!?!?

The frog arrived from IMA!
I know they have a spotty reputation with some of their in house reproductions but they hit it out of the park this time IMO.
Good leather, rivets & stitching.
The scabbard got a couple of polishes with Kiwi Neutral polish as well.
All in all I'm very pleased with the result.
