  1. Most Radio Shack stores have the FeCl in stock labeled as circuit board etchant.
  2. Lots of good info on Little Machine Shop site. I've got a Chinese mini that I got at a truck sale, but most of my accessories came from LMS. Check out the "Learning Center" tab. https://littlemachineshop.com/info/menu_page.php?parent=itm11
  3. Most of the ammo cans have an over center latch and a rubber seal so they're water tight when closed. Definitely shouldn't spill with lid closed. I use a stainless restaurant pan with lid like you see at a buffet. Got it cheap at goodwill.
  4. https://sportingclassicsdaily.com/origins-of-damascus/?utm_source=Sporting+Classics+Daily+Email+List&utm_campaign=ae0f9bbaa1-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2019_11_12_04_41_COPY_01&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_d9203652ee-ae0f9bbaa1-70285049&mc_cid=ae0f9bbaa1&mc_eid=9e48d3e548
  5. That's the air hammer. Their press looks like a Riverside Machine/ Uncle Al press. Mine has been great. https://www.riversidemachine.net/ecommerce/hydraulic-press.html
  6. Maybe testing how sharp a knife was... and it was pretty sharp!
  7. What kind of stand is your engraving vise on? Never seen one like that. Shop looks great!
  8. The knife I carry most is a little Swiss Army with 2 knife blades and a screwdriver and a can/bottle opener. I've carried it almost every day since I bought it in the mid 80's. Old habits... Most of my friends are surprised I don't even own a knife I've made. Most of my male relatives and friends have one.
  9. Very cool! My 87 year old mother has some arthritis and loves her Dexter Russell duo glide chef knife with the handle more over the blade. Not the same shape but somewhat similar function. https://www.dexter1818.com/shop/duoglide/40033.html
  10. I'm pretty sure the blonde traded something else entirely for a microphone in Hustle and Flow.
  11. It's 18,000 BTU, supposed to be good for up to 800 sq ft but it doesn't get my 720 sq ft shop below 78 in the afternoon sun. Still beats the heck out of 100 degrees and I have the air flow directed at my assembly bench where I spend the most time. Actually pretty nice with it blowing right on me, but bigger would be nicer. They make a couple bigger sizes. Mr. Cool brand, lots of videos online.
  12. Installed a DIY ductless mini split air conditioner in the shop. The lines come pre charged so no special tools or equipment are needed. Well, I did have to buy a 3.5" hole saw but otherwise just basic tools. HVAC installers wanted around $6000 for an installed mini split system but this one was $1300 from Costco. It's a 24x30 metal building with an 11' ceiling and the roll insulation. It's not frigid in the shop but I'd call it comfortable, which is a revelation compared to what it was in Texas summers.
  13. Not mine. Just thought I'd pass along the ad. https://austin.craigslist.org/tls/d/leander-hawkeye-power-hammer/6914144312.html
  14. Getting rid of the bump just takes a lot of cash! https://www.moenworks.com/product/rotary-cooled-carbide-platen/
  15. I only use genuine Harley Davidson gear oil in mine (because I had half a bottle left over from my bike).
