Same as I responded on the other thread, get rid of the agate. IMO they are inferior to regular flint. They work until they start to get dull, then you have to use the opposite side, then once that's dull, they're trash. A flint you can reknap, and get many more shots from, plus they spark much much better to begin with. The only advantage to an agate is they are perfectly flat which does make them easy to mount in the jaws of the cock. That's they're only advantage over flints though. IMO agates are not worth using.
