    San mai blade

    Hi guys, so it's my first attempt at a San mai blade but I don't know if the gaps in between my bullets are too wide. Can you take a look at them and let me know. I wouldn't want any cold shuts or delams. Thanks!

    I will! Can I get your email, I'll get your number then and call you after easter break. I also have a treadmill motor I need to see what that has inside maybe that will work and I can save some money.

    If I have a speed adjuster it helps right? The thing is I'm tired of slow I have one that takes me foreeeever hahaha. But here's the million dollar question what do I want. Torque or speed? Or both. Should I just hook it up to a mustang and floor it? Hahah just kidding.

    Excellent Allan I'll make sure it's totally enclosed and fan cooled but do I want a 3600 rpm motor though? Is that good?

    One more thing guys... What type of motor do you recommend to use for the grinder? Horsepower rpm (min and max) speeds, etc. Thanks! Thanks!

    Hey Cody I'm in Mexico... You could take it apart at least the wheels and the parts that could break. That'd be easier to put back together once it's here. My zip is 11700. My email is paulcheca@hotmail.com if you feel like you want to get rid of it.

    Thanks so much Wayne I'll do this and get a tool maker to help me maybe to do the skeleton. I'll let you know if I have problems. But as I said to c. Craft, I'm afraid it won't run true and it'll be a fiasco. But hey... That's the only way to learn... Right?

    Wow. That is amazing... I don't have the skill to do that... I could outsource it to a blacksmith but I'm afraid he won't make it true... I have a used treadmill that I could use as a motor... But I'm thinking I need a blueprint and instructions to give the guy otherwise it's gonna be a fiasco.
