    Seeking advice

    What does the brake cleaner do? I would never have thought to use brake cleaner on a knife.

    Saw blade melt (failure?).

    I'll look good and try to get a picture this evening.

    Is that true for all the lumber mill blades? I picked up a 3' section at the scrapyard and noticed when I got home it has carbide teeth. No rust on it from the scrapyard.

    Spring gardening

    I can imagine what those temps will do to a garden. The 90's we have here is bad enough.

    Spring gardening

    That's my kind of garden. I have cabbage, lettuce and onions planted. Pepper seeds are started. I'd like to get the rest planted in the next couple of weeks if the weather coops.

    Things you might not know can kill you

    Don't forget about your air compressor. Clean the contacts on your pressure switch and make sure the safety popoff is in good working order. If the pressure switch sticks and the popoff is bad, you have a bomb. Been there, seen that.

    1200L Charcoal maker

    Troels - I would love to see it when it is up and running. For now I am going to use a 55 gal. drum. I have plenty of scrap wood for fuel from the sawmill and plenty of red oak for charcoal. This batch of coarse is for cooking. Jeremy - did you finish the one you were working on a couple of years ago.

    I'd like to see a picture of one. I'm planning on making some charcoal in a few weeks using a drum in a fire. What fuel are you using?

    Hunting, post your game.

    Joshua, thanks for the pics. I like the turkeys and deer but that elk at 13 yards is crazy. That usually happens when you don't have a weapon.

    I got a few more knife handles. Got this one yesterday, just getting around to posting. Vacation was good. I put a couple of young bucks in the freezer. Both were about 120#. Alan, how can I keep the color from fading? Keep them inside? I know the sun will bleach them. I'd like to keep the natural color until I use them.

    My hydraulic press plans

    Well, those dimensions are not standard which means your motor was probably a special. With it having a 1 1/8 shaft, I agree it is probably a 5 hp, 1750 rpm. But, it could be a 3600 rpm. Do you have a tach. or strobe light to check the speed? We need to know the speed in order to size your sheave. If you're sure it is 1700 we can go with it. There should be a number on the pump sheave to tell us what size it is and what belts.

    Measure from the bottom of the motor to the center of the shaft and the shaft size. This should be enough to get you frame size. Frame size and rpm's will tell you the HP. I wonder what the switch does?

    What type motor is that? What is under the cover on top? And, is that a switch on the peckerhead? You can find out what it is with a few measurements. You will need to know the rpm's.

    A couple more pieces of equipment and you're going to need a bigger shop. That could be a summer project.

    I see you're from Quebec. Do you live in the northern part or just there for the hunt?
