  1. In that case, you know exactly what a traditional tanto does not look like (Don't feel bad, they screwed me up too)
  2. Good luck! Post pics of yourself carrying that home on the bike
  3. Yep, that's a good buy in my part of the world.
  4. Lucky kid indeed! If that landed on my desk, even today, I would be doing my best Kyūzō impressions within 10 minutes... (My impressions wouldn't do the sword justice either!)
  5. OK, I have to admit to doing a "Face-palm" when I saw the title of this. Then I saw who posted it, and thought, "Well, he could possibly pull that off." And pull it off you did. That is pretty striking.
  6. Report back once you've learned how to strike a match with it
  7. <slight thread distraction> The title of this thread makes me say "with Lucy" in my head every time I see it pop up on my unread posts list. I am weird. <return to normal thread traffic>
  8. I would expect the end bells of an alternator to be an aluminum alloy rather than zinc or magnesium. However, I can't say that I have any direct expertise with one that old.
  9. FWIW, I think AEB-L tastes different than 1075. Not sure about O1. Also not sure I could tell the difference blind...

As already mentioned, the spring-loaded pivot design isn't a good basis for grinding. It will lead to a "Washboard" pattern on your stock because the motor/drum assembly will bounce up and down as the stock passes underneath. Adding more force from the spring is not the answer as you will ultimately stall your 1/2HP motor long before you stop the oscillations. What you have designed is more of a power sander. The drum will be under a mostly constant for
  12. Paint shops sell viscosity cups which are a poor man's method. However, they have narrow usable ranges so I don't know if they will match the ranges of oil very well. They are also a bit technique dependant. Other than that, the equipment to measure viscosity I have used tends to get pretty expensive.
