  1. Most of the 3 jaws I've used had jaws that come off to be inverted due to the shape of the threading mechanism.
  2. Depending on how much swing you have over the cross slide, you can add .25" to your widest dimension then use a saw or cut off wheel to cut one end of your stock small enough to fit in the chuck.
  3. What type of chuck do you have on your lathe and what is the largest size it will accept?
  4. That's a shame. It would have been cool to see the transformation.
  5. That looks very nicely done. Do you have any before pictures?
  6. They're not my flavor, either. That said, good job and I'm glad you could make some money off of them.
  7. I've been out of the knife world for a while. I never considered international trading issues.
  8. I think that would be difficult for anyone without a power hammer
  9. Did you do any forging after you welded it or is it strictly stock removal after that?
  10. 1 cubic inch sounds pretty small. Maybe 2 cubic inches sounds good though.
  11. What about have a specified starting dimensions? Everyone starts with the same size material and does the best they can in whatever style they choose.
  12. It's the only way that most of us can be sure of our heat treatment. I didn't have any rope, but I hacked up a bunch of 2x4s and small trees trying to take over my raspberries and it was still shaving sharp.
  13. The level of finish wasn't very high. No polish, rough handle. It passed though!
