    Suggested RPMS for belt grit

    Hello, Can anyone tell me if there is a suggested RPM based on the grit of a sanding belt. I was taught by a maker who had a single speed grinder and needless to say he had one speed for every belt he used during initial hogging out and finish work. I have read many times that makers will slow down the speeds of their grinders when switching belt grit. What I have gathered from my readings is that the higher the grit the lower the speed. Is this true? Is this based on the grits ability or the control of the grinding by the maker? Any help would be appreciated. Frank

    New Bladed weaponry and firearms publisher

    In that case, our newest imprint is Redd Ink Press. Reddinkpress.com if you want to take a look but our site is under construction currently. There is info on how to submit a manuscript and what types of subjects we are looking for right now. Redd INK Press is an imprint of Nephilim Press LLC. Nephilimpress.com. Before you go to the Nephilim web site please keep in mind that I am a publisher and my job as a publisher is to print and sell books. I say this because Nephilim is a specialty press that deals with Occult subjects. You can also go to Amazon or ebay and find our books. Anyway I thought I would post on here becaue I am a long time member of this forum and there are alot of quality writers here. Most people never make the connection but writing forum how to's with pics is the same as writing a book. The difference is that all of the images and text is edited and typset before printing. All you have to do is write the manuscript in word and plug in the images where you want them and we take care of the rest. that is an oversimplification of the process but I'm sure you all get the gist. Also keep in mind that we are not a vanity press. My corporation, Nephilim Press llc is listed with every publishing resource in the US. All you havto do to verify a publisher is go to RR Bowkers web site and do a publisher serch. Ther are other companies that list publishers as well but RR Bowker is the US Isbn no. Distributor that we use. Anyway I look forward to hearing from you all in the future and keep up the amazing work. PS can someone recommend a tutorial that teaches how to make a twisted handle for a dagger. The shallow twist rate not the corkscrew rate.

  5. This is not spam!!!!!!!!! I swear!!! email me and I will prove it that I am a real person. I hope this posting does not violate any board rules. Since this site is the best source of information I have ever found on bladesmithing, knife making making, shop equipment and techniques in general, I thought this would be one of the best places to try and find authors who may be looking for a publisher. I have recently started a new publishing imprint called Redd INK Press and we're specializing in books about firearms and bladed weaponry. I currently own another publishing imprint and have written several technical manuals for the United States Army but I'll discuss all this with anyone who wants my references. Just send me an e-mail and I will provide you with them. Basically what we're looking for is authors who have either written a manuscript, or have an idea for one and need a publisher. Make no mistakes here, Redd INK Press is not a vanity press is a trade imprint. We are listed with RR Bowker and we are not selling you anything we are looking for quality material to add to our title list to be sold by our company. If this sounds like something that you may be interested in please get in touch with me and we can discuss it further I'm happy to answer all questions you may have and discuss the process with you and tell you what we're all about. Once again I want to let everyone know that I am a real person writing this. This is not spam. If the administration thinks this is spamware or if I did something wrong please delete this immediately send me an e-mail and I promise I'll never do it again. I don't want to be banned or locked out of the form because I'm a knife maker myself and I absolutely love this site. It is my favorite reference. Frank Redd
