Tony then scribes a "timing mark" through the centerline of the bushing and onto the tang. The marks are used and aligned each time the knife is temporarily assembled and adjusted for proper operation and in final assembly. This is very important due to the fact that the center hole may not be perfectly centered in the bushing. Care is taken during the testing phase to clamp the liner/bolster assemblies together with a slotted pony clamp over the pivot so that the bushing doesn't turn.
