  1. Haha! I use one just like this to get rough beveling started before progressing to finer files.
  2. Welded closed and refitted a basket hilt. Sure beats the cavernous Mae it used to be!
  3. So bought an old vise off of a forum group fellow and whilst cleaning it up I see this on the crank yolk.. has anyone ever seen one of these?
  4. I’ve personally chased wrought iron etching for a few years. I’ve found that adding a few cap fulls of peroxide to muriatic acid really brings out the grain of the wrought without affecting the carbon steel. I wish you luck! I’m
  5. Yep, need me one of these.. thanks for sharing!
  6. Thank you! I’m going to try these products out!
  7. Thank you fellows. I’ve been going at it with a stone and a dowel wrapped in paper. It’s slow going but I’ll get there eventually. It isn’t hardened yet and it’s from a section of coil spring I replaced on my Mustang.

  11. One of two laid in.. here’s to being cross eyed! IMG_1013.MOV
  12. Covid sucks.. just getting back in the shop after being sick as a dog for 7days. So I’ve got the handle shaped enough for the next steps. Constructive criticism is always welcomed! IMG_1009.MOV
  13. I’m ignorant on this term. All I know is I saw something that inspired this weird project many years ago… funny how things morph with time
  14. Well I got everything flat and profiled using some feedback. Got fullers started and wow I really need to invest in a belt grinder..
  15. Ok, I think I’m getting somewhere. It’s odd but I dig it. Sharpie lines are profile changes, fuller location, and the center line of the handle to the tip.. and a few errant hammer marks I haven’t quite vanquished. Too odd you think?
