  1. Thanks guys....will probably just split it the long way. One of the vids I watched some dude stuck like 5 or 6 blades in his plates. I was thinking if I did it the short way I could almost get a 14.5" blade in on a 45* angle.
  2. Soooo I went to the metal supermarket looking for something I can turn into a quench plate(s) I picked up a 1" thick piece of 6160 thats 11.5"x 18" My dilemma is which way to split it. If I go the 18 way it will be less than 6" wide. I dont think I can do more than 2 or 3 blades at once. How much space should be between blades when doing more than 1. The oven is 14.5 deep so if I split it the other was a portion of the handle will stick out....is that an issue?? While I was there I snagged a piece of 1095. I had some parks until it evaporated .lol...soooo I went
  3. Hmmmm....I took over a blade...told him I made it. He didnt ask me if it was stainless or not ect. I saw your post about having your name on/in your mark....now I am re thinking things.
  4. I am trying to launch a websight. Thinking something simple like Kreg's Kustom Blades. How would one go about researching if something like the initials K.K.B were already taken/used. I am not much of an artist but I googled this up. I just paid a visit to the engraving place across the street. He talked like if I brought in a dozen at a time he would do it for 3.50 a blade. Any reason I would NOT want to go the engraving route for my makers mark?
  5. Well.....I just ordered a 14.5 deep paragon from Jantz. I dont even know what the going rate for HT on stainless is...but I will hook anyone on here up if they want something done. Does ael-b benefit from cyro? Where the heck do ya buy liquid nitrogen? lol
  6. The barron sent me some ael-b on accident. I gave one a go in my forge and it only got sorta hard. I am sooooo wanting to order a knife oven right now....my visa is twitching. lol
  7. Thanks for you input Alan. I think I will pull the trigger on some aeb-l. I am gonna sent it out.....I really wanted to get a HT oven but I dont think it would ever pay for itself. The one thread that did pull up when I tried the search was the one where you recommended Paul Bos...the rest seamed pretty much un related.
  8. Soooooo I have a dozen or so "hunting" knives ready for me to start learning/making sheaths. And so far it reminds me of something my kid said when she was about 5....she told me once "but I cant want to" lol I have a cleaver and a pearing blade design that I am diggin. Think I wanna make a few sets with matching handles and see how they do on consignment at a store by my house. This has probably already been beat to death.....I didnt have much luck when typing in best stainless using the search function. What would be THE best....and what do you think is the best bang for
  9. My only complaint is if I am standing/grinding on the tight side of the machine the belt stays solid. When I am on the left side the belt wants to push to the right as I grind. It makes consistent plunge lines from side to side a real challenge. I usually end up having to blast one back to meet the other with and angle grinder. If anyone know what may help this I am all ears. I re fied my house to turn my upstairs into a studio apt. If I have any thing left I think I am gonna upgrade. My pet peve is when I buy a tool and then end up having to buy another/spen
  10. Beautiful country......thanks for sharing.
  11. I gotta ask....what did ya give a dirt nap to here. I cant think of anything near hear that would be that size and that color. I picked up a barrel burner 26 nostler in a browning x-bolt that isnt even sighted in yet. I havent tried real hard yet because it only has 40 rounds down the barrel. Sure my velocities are still changing with the copper build up.
  12. A couple of last questions. Are those just standard bricks....or some kind of fire brick/blocks? The place I buy my refractory stuff from says the largest fire blocks they have are 9"x4.5"x3" Also for a blower....would a leaf blower work? If not I am open for suggestions there.
  13. That last post of mine I kept hitting submit reply....it appeared it was never gonna work so I gave up. lol I really wanna try this. Sounds like you do not put all of the steel in at once. Do you just lay it on top of the coals...or do you try and stuff it down a bit. What is it your bricks are setting on.....is it of any importance. I picked up another propane tank a few months ago. Do you think that would make a good furnace if I stood it on end? I have left over wool and refractory cement from my forge build.....would that be beneficial? Is there a reason
  14. I may need to try this soon. Forgive my ignorance but what fuel is in the furnace....just hardwood? I may need to try this soon.
