    Beginners beware

    that is true. before he closed, the closest propane guy here filled up the tank for $15 cash. now his property is bought and being turned into another strip center full or nail salons and check cashing stores.

    first knife on new grinder

    ya. the gap is an oops. i was carefully sawing the slot and checking fit over and over. then bam. its too long! ahhhh also. the bevel at the tip is different on each side. not sure why it did that. everything on the grinder is square.

    first knife on new grinder

    the sheath is veg tan. my hand got a little shaky putting my last name in with the wood burner. sheath is designed to be a pocket slip. when im hunting, i leave my knife in my backpack side pocket. hate stuff hanging off my belt and poking me in the gut when i sit down.

    first knife on new grinder

    finally got the grinder built and belts ordered. since my forge is not 100% i decided to grind out the first knife from an old usa nicholson file. first i brought the hardness down by toasting it in my toaster oven for an hour at 350. twice. after i ground the profile i stuck the blade portion in the dirt and softened the tang with a propane torch so i could drill the holes. to get the bevel angle i set the platen at approximately 10 degrees. then clamped my blade to a piece of angle iron. the handle is walnut. i think. held on by corby bolts and devcon 2 ton.
