  1. Hello!! Still gathering intel on he PayPal situation.. Update on Google Pay..my personal account is now active so I can now receive my royalty payments now problem there..The business account I am still waiting on he activation number to arrive USPS.. Costs are reasonable... 1.25%.. even if they were as high as my VISA/MC charges those fees come off my taxes as legit business expenses so.. I am still rather upset about this whole mess.. JPH
  2. Alve: That is what is really getting under my skin..They allow all these others to take paypal and they shut me down?? 140K Plus folks selling swords?? and they nuke me?/ I am still rather upset about all of this and I am now gathering he information I need to see where I go from here.. In the mean time I did set up with google pay and after speaking with them they have no problem as long as what I sell is legal where I am located...My google pay for business will take a few more days though.. JPH
  3. Hello: I forge them in and then do some clean up using a small drum sander 1/2" dia and sanding bands on my foredom flex shaft.. for smaller (narrower) ones I use files then papers around some round micarta to clean them out.. If I scrape them is the clean up is minimal if you are good at scraping..
  4. GG: yeah, PayPal is a PITA at times but they did come in handy for my overseas suppliers when I ordered the horns from your part of the world..as well as rayskin and other exotic leathers.. UPDATE: (The hits keep on comin')..PayPal just shut down my wife's account (she had one for "house stuff" as well as getting paid for her sports column/articles ...she is a writer for professional wrestling..[there are several pro wrestlers that want to storm PayPal on our behalf and pile drive a few folks for real..] so she is in he same mess that I am..) and they shut down my son's PayPal and he has noting to do with this at all...and he still lives out west..!! This is starting to get funny when you look at it but I am still going to fight this...It is just not right... More as things progress.. JP (working to finish my water cooled furnace blower) H
  5. Update: Well..it is official..I sell illegal and deadly weapons.. Yes all..I am 100% guilty of selling (gasp..) SWORDS!! Yes..that is is what got me shut down.. Apparently swords are illegal to sell as far as PayPal is concerned and there is no appeal of this decision..So I am taking the next step once I figure out who I call first. More as things progress... JP (still working on melting steel) H
  6. Hello: I am sill waiting for some sort of reply from PayPal..they have 1 more day in their 3 day reply time..so they say. I am still very upset over this simply due to the fact that they won't even tell me what I sell that is prohibited. To make things even more interesting I do not or ever had any PayPal logos, shopping carts or their "Buy It Now" features on my site. All I did was mention that I accept PayPal on my "Payment options".. I am really working blind here.... If I hear anything I will let ya all know ASAP as to what transpired.. JP (back to working on getting a gas furnace hot enough to melt steel) H
  7. JDWare: It was 100% legit cause when I called paypal they said it was closed due to me selling prohibited weapons.. but they would not tell me what was prohibited to them....so the fight continues... JPH
  8. and it IS 100% legit cause 30 seconds after I read that I was on the horn to them and then they stonewalled me.. Niels: All I sell is hand made/hand forged items other than an occasional gemstone that I hand cut myself. That is it.I have no idea after some geeze 30 odd years of taking paypal (I signed up when they first started in what 1998ish?) they do this out of the blue and then they don't have the ba.... to at least tell me why?? Oh I am not done with this....no where near.. all ideas and suggestions are being considered here cause if they can do it to me..they can do the same others.. Mortem Tyrannis!! JPH
  9. You can no longer do business with PayPal After a review of your account activity, we've determined that you're in violation of PayPal's Acceptable Use Policy. 221_reason13 As a result, your account has been permanently limited and you won't be able to conduct any further business using PayPal. This is permitted under the PayPal User Agreement sections Restricted Activities and Actions We May Take. You must remove all references to PayPal from your website(s) and/or auction(s), including removing PayPal as a payment option, the PayPal logo, and the PayPal shopping cart. If you have funds in your PayPal balance, we'll hold it up for 180 days. These funds may be used to satisfy any obligations you may have under the User Agreement and Acceptable Use Policy, including potential liabilities to third parties and to PayPal for each violation of the Acceptable Use Policy, including monetary damages. After that period, we'll email you with information on how to access any remaining funds. If there are chargebacks that result in your account balance falling below zero, you will need to settle the amount owed to PayPal to avoid further action. Customers who are permanently limited for violating the Acceptable Use Policy are not permitted to use PayPal services and are not permitted to open new or additional PayPal accounts. You can find the complete the PayPal Acceptable Use Policy by clicking Legal at the bottom of any PayPal page. We regret any inconvenience this may cause.
  10. JDW: They (PayPal) would NOT tell me...All they said to me was if they told me it would violate THEIR privacy policies..!!?? What the .....?? So I am shot down..butI am making a few moves so... but still...at least tell me what I was supposed to of done wrong?? JPH
  11. Hello!@! I don't know if this is the right spot for this..I just got a letter from PayPal stating that they are closing my account permanently, with no avenue of appeal and no opening a different account due to the fact that I am selling dangerous weapons which is in violation of their no firearms, firearms accessories or ammunition sales. This is a serious hit for me cause I used PayPal to pay my suppliers and well..this will make things a good bit harder. I am looking at alternative payment methods but still..they shut me down ..Who is next? This sucketh mightily.. JPH
  12. Howdy: Too many layers as already mentioned...too tight a twist and you didn't get "into it" deep enough (as already mentioned)..All in all..you are on the right path..at least I wold say you are...But what do I know?? JPH (rumors of my demise have been exaggerated..just recovering from neck surgery to remove some shell fragments that got "gifted" to me in 2004)
  13. Howdy!! I do miner a bit differently than most folks as I draw down the whole spike and to me that gives a much better "feel" in the hand..as well as providing "extra" material for the blade.. JPH (Off to pick up after Elsa's visit last night)
  14. Hello: Nice knife..great to see someone else doing fullers and yelmans on a blade.. as far as long feathers.. you haven't even started to get tortured until you get above 18" and anything over 22" or so is just agony to draw out.. Still..nice clean lines..very very nice... I use an old HF axe that I rolled the edge down a wee bit for the smaller/shorter stuff..on the longer pieces..well I am saving that for book IV..a man has to keep a few things to himself until the time is right.. You should of heard the vast amounts of very creative profanity that is still hanging out in a blue cloud over the gulf from when I was doing my Shamshir.. 31" of wavy feather is not for the faint hearted..or the easily offended... Nice clean work..and your leather work is 1000 times better than mine will ever be... JPH
  15. DL: I tried SS hose clamps like 25+ years ago..the idea does work but I wind up welding the clamps to the bar...which can be a nasty problem with some projects.. I have been wiring stacks together from my start 50+ years ago..never had any problems at all..but I really get the wires tighter than a Scotman's purse string..that is the key there..get it TIGHT..especially when you are welding shim stock and sheet like I do..
