  1. I would recommend V-bolt or chain makers tongs. Wolf jaw tong are pretty much useless in my experience. Doug
  2. It's been a while since I used an asperated burner but, no, the flame doesn't look right to me. Can you open the air intake to give the burner a little more air. An asperated set up like that get most of us to move on to a blown burner. Much easier to manage. Doug
  3. Pieter-Paul, best wishes on your JS exam. Doug
  4. Gee, I can break jewelers saw blades faster than that. Doug
  5. You've done a great job on the handle and the guard. Doug
  6. Masterful is an understatement. Doug
  7. Looks like it will do the job. Is that a beer bottle opener in the ricasso? Doug
  8. Dang, I might have to make a trip over to Indiana if you can get prices like that. Doug
  9. You do a great job of tooling your sheaths. Doug
  10. Those are great looking knives, Wish you the best at the show. Doug
  11. That 11 shift still doesn't give you much time to do much of anything. I hope you can work some family time in with that. Doug
  12. Ya, third shift can suck. I worked it for several years and, you're right, it's hard to get anything done.
  13. Also heat cycle your blades to decrease the size of the grains. The smaller the grains the less deeply the steel will harden. Doug
  14. That is really nice looking. Great job. Doug
