    Don't weld in tennis shoes

    When hot slag gets inside a shoe, it is a contest to see how fast you can get out of your shoes and socks. I have grabbed the dunk bucket and done just that, dunked the entire shoe foot and all in the bucket!!

    Browning a knife with scales

    Plumb Brown https://www.brownells.com/gunsmith-tools-supplies/metal-prep-coloring/blackening-browning/plum-brown-prod24772.aspx Works the same way as bluing the advantage is if the finish gets a scratch it rusts back in the scratch. Most folks do not realize bluing and browning are both a rusting process!! The chemical causes a rust and then polishing with 000 steel wool and do it over and over again till the finished product shows no signs of the real rust caused by the chemical!! Just blue or brown!

    Completed Mosaic Bowie

    What y'all didn't know Bowie is Gary's middle name. You have been ripping up the Bowie's recently. Fantastic work but, then I expect nothing less from you!!

    Rebar spec sheets

    That's what the book says. Now if you talk to the actual people that make rebar they are gonna tell you it is kind of like making Spam. Everything but the squeal goes into spam and what ever re-cycled steel they can find to pour out as rebar. I have seen more that one construction project fail and more often than not the rebar is the culprit!!

    Frankenhammer plans

    With air hammers how do they build enough pressure to do the actual hammering?? It would take a good compressor and I still believe it would need something to assist the air!! Anyone got insight into an air hammer really works??

    Goat horn Gents Knife

    Richard, love your work and this one is not an exception! The bolster and the pommel are unique. The effect on the copper is really cool!!!

    Simple Integral - First Hamon

    Very nice! You are too modest, "Simple Integral - First Hamon"! There is little I see simple about that one!! Really nice work on the sheath as well!!!

    White Out as anti-scale

    It runs in my head that either Geoff Keys or someone on that episode used white out as a anti-scale!! Ask him about it!

    A Modern Bowie

    Real nice work Gary!! What are the fittings made from, I am guessing maybe nickel/silver??

    Possible Old J.S. / M.S. ?

    And therein lies the difference between using your name and a mark! Marks are cool till no one know who they are!! This could be R. Clark. http://rclarkknives.com/ A search only brought up one R. Clark, knife maker. The last name is more common!! Can't find a GB Ivory as a maker!!! The marks someone else may recognize them!!
