  1. Nice! I love the 8020 system. We use it all the time at work. I never thought of using it for a grinder frame though. I may have to do a little bit of pricing and see if its feasible.
  2. I had the same use in mind Chris. Judging by the leverage he was putting on it at the end of the video, I think it would hold just fine. That being said, the door lock that you posted would be a whole lot easier, and a bit more appropriate in size too.
  3. Thanks for that Brian. I think that'll come in handy in the near future.
  4. Ha! I hadn't noticed that. I was trying to get a picture of him at the surface, before he managed to rip the fish in half, but I couldn't get my camera out quick enough. I've never seen a turtle around here that had that much moss growing right on his shell.
  5. My kids and I recently hiked back in to a small lake in the woods near my house. As I sat in my float tube I started to feel some tugging on my stringer. The picture isn't the best, but if you look you can see the 18" snapper turtle that wanted my fish more than me.
  6. Given that it is intended for a child, I'm wondering if it's not meant to be more of a whittling knife instead of a true carver. Either way, depending on the age of the child, I think the guard is a really good idea.
  7. There used to be a hardware store around here that sold the old school style replacement nozzles right next to the brand new cans with the new style. It made it easy to buy them at the same time.
  8. Crisp and clean like always John. I like it!
  9. I've been toying with the idea of playing around with D2 (I can get as much as I want from scrap tooling at work), but you're doing a good job of talking me out of it Jerrod. Lyesyuv, I agree with Alan. O1 makes a hell of a blade, even if you only have a simple heat treat setup.
  10. Excellent video Niels! Thank you for taking the time to put this together and share it.
  11. Pretty cool website Alan. They have just about every type of file you could ever want. Too bad they don't give a way to order them direct. I sent them an email to see if I can get the name of a distributor in my area.
  12. @JenniferP, Are the SWBT files still in production? I tried a google search and came up with nothing.
  13. I'm really looking forward to seeing this one finished!
  14. I took a few minutes and sanded down a small piece of the curly maple I picked up this past weekend. A quick coat of BLO and now I'm itching to get it on a knife!
  15. I took a road trip and spent the afternoon in @Mike Haverstock's garage, shooting the breeze and checking out the motors he has for sale. I came home with a brand new 2hp 3450rpm motor, still in the box. He was nice enough to throw in some gorgeous curly maple as well. Thanks again Mike! We'll have to hook up again and do some forging sometime.
