  1. Neat pic James.Was that a grist mill?

  3. http://www.harrisproductsgroup.com/consumables/msds.asp Contact Harris and see what they recommend.Ive used a lot of their products and they might help you.I'm thinking for something to give you the color you want will take a higher heat range to flow than the temper of the blade can withstand.
  4. I found this a while back.The guy is etching brass but gives a good description of using the laser toner. etching with laser toner
  5. Did the blade through harden?Hardened steel tends to etch darker than non hardened.Just curious if it was clayed and hardened underneath the coating.
  6. Hi again Bruce.I guess there are many ways to skin a cat.The handle is pinned onto the frame and nearly finished before the tang is seated into it.I used epoxy and set one pin after it had cured.I guess they may have used hide glue or pitch in the day.You need just a slight amount of play in the tang to frame fit to make sure it aligns square against the guard and straight with the blade.I made a new filing jig with a wide platform and got away from the two pieces of flat bar I used to use.It makes a world of difference in getting things square.Hope this helps.
  7. Thanks again guys, most specially you Don.You are the caliber most check their chambers with.I hope to continue to learn as everyone of you do.I spoke with the good doctor this evening and another thing that makes him special is I found he has traveled 1800 miles this week teaching.At 7PM he was in a room full of folks learning engraving.I found out that's why he had not seen the pic I sent him to hear his critique. Guy, I hope you can make the next one.Most likely it will be sheathes to carry the blades in.
  8. Thanks guys.I am taking a liking to the style.Ive got to work on that dirk like "evil" look.Jim has a way to make his bowies and dirks yell the word evil. The curly maple was a gift from Randy Skidmore, a great friend he is.The wood was stabilized with nelsonite in the vacuum chamber.I really like how it works and finishes up. Bruce, sorry for the illusion.That plunge is the guard reflecting off the blade.The tang has the same bevels and cross section as the blade.Make sure you have the finish you want on the blade before fitting the guard.Any work there later will make a nice fit sloppy r
  9. It uses infrared.They have become very popular with welding inspectors checking preheat temps prior to welding.Specially the over weight ones who find it hard to bend over and use the tried and proved tempstix.
  10. I had the opportunity to spend a great weekend with Jim along with several more guys from our local group a while back.It was a very busy weekend as he was showing us framed handles, how to fit the guards and such.We all started out forging blades intending to finish them but I helped a late comer forge his first and finally got the one I started home and finished.Ive done another since and thought I'd show you guys.The later is the one I started at Jim's. Jim is a one of a kind guy.I thank Don for introducing us!
  11. Cool Guy! I am happy to see you getting into the shop.
  12. The yellow wire was added to a black wire to lengthen it. Ive also made a etching block from a carbon motor brush and felt for a pad since then.Cuts the corrosion you get on the wire.
