  1. How to setup and use photobucket

    You could use Imgur as a host. I switched to them when Photobucket disabled 3rd party linking.
  2. New Year's Trio

    My polishing is finally getting better. These got a 1200 grit, low mirror finish. Salmon not included...
  3. New Year's Trio

    Thank you Clifford!
  4. Belts!!

    Here's another vote for Tru-Grit. I've had nothing but great service from them. I also like the Norton Blaze ceramic 36 grit belts for my heavy stock removal.
  5. New Year's Trio

    Thank you very much, Zeb. As far as quality/fit & finish, these may well be my best to date. My Fred Rowe Bubble Jig has been a godsend. I'm learning more tricks with every batch of blades I make, and this place has helped quite a bit as well.
  6. January harvest

    Ooh, split those sweet peppers in half, and then stuff'em and bake'em! 1 block of Philly Cream Cheese 1 roll of Jimmy Dean Sausage 1 cup of shredded parmesan Brown sausage, then drain. Thoroughly mix with the cheeses, then stuff the peppers. Bake for 20 minutes @ 325 degrees. P.S.---Works great with jalapenos, so try it with your hot peppers too!
  7. New Year's Trio

    Thank you Doug. I finally took your advice, and recently switched to 3/8" stock for my handle scales.
  8. New Year's Trio

    I started these back in early November, and finished them just after Christmas. 1075, stock removal blades. They range from 18 & 1/2" to 19 & 7/8" overall. Two of them weigh 1 lb, 1 oz, and the third weighs 1 lb, 2 oz. Gonna hang on to the bottom one.
  9. Crusader sword

    Excellent, looking forward to seeing the finished sword!
  10. Longclaw

    Very nice. Just about a spot-on match to the prop sword. Lord Snow would be proud!
  11. Drill press and hidden tangs

    I have the Harbor Freight 8" drill press. So far, it's been a reliable machine, and sufficient for my needs. I do strictly full tang pieces, so spindle travel has not been an issue for me.
  12. Photos from an Elk hunt

    Very cool!
  13. supplies

    I get my handle pins from Jantz. Got my Kalamazoo 2x72 from them as well. Fantastic service, no complaints here. For my belts, Tru-Grit. Steel--Admiral Steel. Wood for handles--Woodcraft. Sandpaper & epoxy--True Value Hardware.

  15. Platen(sp?) cutting Q?

    I had the same issue with the platen on my Kalmazoo 2x72, and I did similar to this to fix it. I used a pair of 1" platens from my 1x30 machines. Worked out great.
