I recently purchased a graflex hilt. I believe it is from TGS. The pins are sticking out too far. Is there a solution to this?
Yes you are correct, that is the blade holder
Roman's Gen1 is different than any other maker's Gen1 -- the sync pin holes are closer to the front than is typical. There are other tells as well, and owning a couple of his I can tell the replica in your photos isn't from Roman.Actually, I may have the Gen 1 graflex. Is there any way I can know which version I have for sure?
Someone else may want to purchase the shorter pins if they buy your blade holder from you. The shorter plug holes and shorter pins aren't accurate, but if you re-sell your current blade holder as a discount and maybe also provide a link with your sale to where the buyer can get shorter pins you might find a buyer to recoup a little money to go toward the new blade holder.That’s your blade holder.. you can purchase short pins from a few different vendors
