  1. Hope to enjoy it, thanks for all the suggestions. Nothing really in stone yet so I'll definitely write these down and try to see some of them, a few were things I was already wanting to see but others I'd not considered or knew about.
  2. Hey guys, I've got a trip to the UK coming up here pretty soon and I thought I'd drop by and ask for suggestions on things that are a must see. I'll be in the Dundee area and heading to London towards the end of the trip. Any recommendations?
  3. Very cool Alan, and yes they are fun little buggers =D
  4. Happy birthday Don, been doing a bit of grumbling myself.
  5. That's pretty darn spiffy. Quite the width on it as well =]
  6. I'll put this here as well =P Thanks quite nice, all that watching Alan really paid off huh

  8. Well I've been without internet for a while, recently was able to get it again. Area I live in blows for pretty much any kind of service. Previous company just decided to drop it's wifi users. Anyway, thought I'd post something I whipped up recently. I've been wanting a disc sander with variable speed for a while now, it was on the list of tools to purchase. I attended one of the recent KGA shop tours at Mike Miller's place and he was showing off his disc set up. Well it struck me how easy it would be to just build an attachment for my grinder as I already have the motor and the VFD. I had some tubing to use as a makeshift tooling arm, and I stole the disc plate off my 6x48 after ripping off all the plastic dust cowling with some pliers. I'd hate it if they made it easy to disassemble, that'd just make too much sense. Anyway after sourcing some bearings and shaft I was good to go. Here's how it turned out. I'll probably replace the disc plate once I get some funds for a better one. Possibly one from Beaumont. Now it's just to get used to using it =D My hands shall thank me.
  9. I'd come on here to ask if he was gonna eat it, I remember a thread on British Blades a long while back discussing various types of meat and there were a few posters who mentioned mountain lion/cougar as being the best meat they'd ever had.
  10. If you're using dies, then make a pair that only allow you to cut to a certain depth =D
  11. I'll have to watch that, any one catch How Booze Built America? It was pretty neat too, I guess it was a mini series as I only caught a few episodes.
  12. That was what I had heard/read as well. I'd read the most use it gets is general daily chores. That was why I was thinking something hunter sized. Persia fighter hmm... Is that a pun? :-D Not sure if I wanna go full tang or do hidden. Really thinking I'll use my desert camo micarta as the dryness won't bother it. I'm leaning toward hidden as i find it a sound build.
  13. I've got a marine relative being deployed, may already have been, and who I'm going to make a knife for and send to him so I was wanting to suggestions. I think they said he'll be in Afghanistan. He said he likes tanto but I think he is referring to the Americanized variety. He did say I'm free to do what I want though but figured I'd get input. Was kind of thinking a clip point hunter/mini Bowie. Thoughts?
  14. Ray was just telling me about this the other day. It's a good demo. He sure makes a lot of those.
  15. You may contribute bacon....mmm...bacon
  16. I'd like to hear how you end up liking it, I read a few other reviews who seemed to be pretty pleased with it.
