  1. Carbide blanks for file guides?

    well at work anymore, i machine d-2 blocks and braze carbide on them. they are hammer mill blades that pulverize cement. we use a silver alloy brazing strip, clip a piece off, coat everything in flux, and heat the whole thing up with a rosebud. watch the brazing mat'l run out, let it air cool, and its solid. now it's gonna be on there and you'll grind it flat and square.
  2. Heart symbol in Japanese blades

    Well first, we have to remember that the heart symbol does not resemble an actual heart all that closely. So where did the heart symbol come from in the first place? Secondly, different cultures associate different meanings with the heart. The symbolism of the heart changes with different cultures, and in some cultures (i.e. ancient Egyptian) it's not held in much esteem at all.
  3. Tungsten steel?

    Just a shot in the dark, but there is in fact a T - series tool steels. The "T" stands for tungsten aka wolfram.

  12. Fredricks cross help

    so long as the cuts from each end overlap at 90 degrees there is going to be a hole in the middle when it is unfolded. how much they overlap dictates how big the hole is going to be. simple as that. some trial and error coupled with intuition if you have any, and you'll have pleasing proportions figgered out in no time.
