Some time ago I bought some letter opener parts from either Carbatec or Carrolls. They were the basic kit but I have lost any instructions that may have come with the parts. Anyone have them or can give me the measurements etc. to make the letter openers?

Thanks but my kits have less parts than the ones mentioned in your link but I guess I can adapt your instructions to my kits.

If it is the sleeveless version, just drill a hole at one end large enough for the end, turn between centres and finish. Just ensure there is a beed or something slightly largerthan the blade cover. Then glue in the blade.

Here's one I made many years ago
