    Learing everything I can about knife making. Forging hot steel. I am always amazed at what can be done to hot steel with a hammer and anvil. Meeting other knife makers and hopefully coming away as friends.
  1. We've got a lot of things planned for this year. Some that we haven't done before. If you've never been, this is the one to attend. If you've been before, we are looking forward to having you back. Dale
  2. Search "Old Hickory Knives". Look at the model QN-736. I believe it may be what you are looking for. I have one that I found laying in the road. Dale
  3. Sounds interesting. I'd like to try some .100 or .125 X 1 1/4 or 1 1/2. Wish you could get it done in time to bring some to the Batson Bladesmithing Symposium. Dale
  4. My motel reservations are made. Barring an emergency, I'll be there Dale
  5. Hi Scott, I have one of the first presses that Jim built. I'm at work right now, but I'm off tomorrow and will see which hose size goes where. Dale
  6. I have enlaged prostate. I call it my "Old Man's Disease". The urologist put me on Flomax. Wonderful stuff. I haven't had any problems since I started it. He also suggested the saw palmetto, but it didn't help me. Good Luck. Dale

  8. I have a 100 lb vulcan just like that one. It was given to me. Althought it dosen't have much rebound I still use it a lot. Some times a smaller anvil works better than my 300 pounder. That said, I would NOT pay three dollars a pound for a vulcan. I think you can find a better anvil for that kind of money. Dale
