  5. Been busy and it’s been a bit hotter than I like outside, but I have finished a few things I’ll post in a bit. Today, though, is a really good day. I finally have upgraded my Harbor Freight anvil-shaped object for a lovely new Atlas Knife “Grahm” I have to adjust my stand for the taller Grahm, and I need to put something on to make it quiet - it rings like a church bell! I have some rubber to try, and if that fails then I’ll go get some caulk

  6. Okay, get a cup of coffee. This was my first hammer-in but I think I covered it well enough that those of you who didn't get to go will feel as if you did. I took over 200 pictures, so it too me some time to work them up and sort them out. Hope you enjoy.

  7. I do think the idea is good. Would be even better for someone that actually knows how to braze I did manage to get everything into one solid piece but it's going to be a lot of clean up and fixing in a couple of spots. Anyone have a good technique to get excess solder off?

  9. Severe abuse. the whole forward half of the plate has separated from the body, and then whoever was responsible continued to pound on it until it started to disintegrate. The steel usually doesn't flow over the iron like that, but in this case it did. My guess would be someone was using a BIG sledge hammer on it for an extended period. The $50-$75 range is what I'd expect to see it go for to a smith who knows what they're doing, although I've seen similarly trashed anvils in antique stores priced much higher. If you want to be brutally mercenary about it, the wrought iron alone

  12. Definitely needs more practice to make her trigger control second nature. We've been shooting off and on all summer, and when she's concentrating she'll hold a 2" group at 40 yards with her little bead sited .410. Put a deer in front of her and she jerks the trigger like its her first time ever shooting. Watching them grow up and mature right in front of your eyes is one of the things that makes the youth hunt so much fun.

  15. Good work. In the future, if you have veg tan leather and want it black, I mean really black and even, get some clean steel wool (wash the oil out of it), drop it in a pint (more or less) of white vinegar. Let it eat for a week or two. If your steel disappears just add some more. You can add bits of other stuff; nails, cut-offs, etc. Just make sure nothing is dirty, galvanized or otherwise plated, and not stainless. After a week or two, strain the vinegar through a clean piece of cloth. Then just wipe it on to clean veg tan. The leather can't hav

  16. She's got to get over her nerves before I'll say she can shoot straight. This deer was less than 10 yards and she still managed to hit it in the spine. She was supposed to be aiming for the lungs. I told her it was a good miss lol. Better than last year though. She had a clean miss on a deer that was standing in the exact same spot!
