How can you file on the tang or breach for a better fit when the hook on the breach and the slot on the tang where the hook fits are matched to lock together precisely. It seems to me any filing where the flat surfaces meet would only widen.Thanks. I filed to achieve a good breach to tang fit, then use hot melt archery adhesive Ferr-L-Tight to hold the pieces together for draw filing. I ruined and repaired/replaced a few components also. The first build is quite a learning experience. I found I had to quadruple check for repeatable alignments and the rigidness of holding fixtures before doing any drilling operations.
