  1. @Kyle,ok,what angle should my bevels be at?I would haft to do it by hand,but if I would use a grinder,what dagree should it be at? The file you said about,could I get one at like Home-Dpot or Lowes,or do I need to order one? A throughing knife is what I am going for,but I no the bevels are steep,just dont no how to get what I want,so point me in the right direction if you could please...
  2. Ok I did,I thought it would not that big and 100 pixels would be ok,this is the first time I ever posted a pitcure on here,I will try and do better next time...
  3. @Mark,just seeing what I can do with what I have,I'm glad I was told not to do it,it would not have been perty at all,and the fumes I no about,worked in a steel-mill for a year,neat and dangeris,but there crucible's were huge,like you could put a car inside of them. I only have like 3 1/2 months to do something,so I want to learn and do what I can in this time,it might be a bit before I get a nother chance...
  4. I tride a grinder free hand,thats what I have to use. And if I use a file,what direction should I go in,up or down,meaning like you would sharpen a knife or does'nt matter,this knife is more like a test run,but in any case I would like it to look nice...

  6. @Kyle,that must of hurt like hell...
  7. @Sean,the knife looks great Sorry,about post on your thead...
  8. @Sean->ok,I get that,But if I can do scrap steel I could do better steel later,this is what I'm thinking and melt down anything els later,I have about 5 trash bags of aluminum can I want to melt down,the one place I can take them gives more for ingots. So if I have the stuff to do high-temp steel I can do other metals,see where I'm going with this...
  9. @Bronztools & Doug,reed a bit down or up. So fare Steve I melted everything I put in my groungforg/blast furnes,just not in a cubicule,exp. stanless steel,cardrums(brakes shoues) galvinized steel and tool steel,1340,440 and castiron...and thank you for the advice,I will be carfull
  10. @Doug,my dad worked in the foundry for 20yrs,(my dad is 67now and just can't remeber somethings)he just can't think of some of the stuff they used to make a mold out of,they use to use this green slim stuff he said they got in 50gal drums,I no I need black sand. If I can make mold for steel I could make a mold for other metal's,trying to save some cash and space,If my dad seen or herd of some of the stuff he used to use he could better help me,so any in-put is good...
