I turned some of Chad's damascus into pivot screws.... The big one is Carbon damascus and the little one is Stainless damascus twist. I just heat colored them a little with my heat gun to see the pattern without etching them. My wife says they are pretty, so they must be good!

I dont use it too much, just to profile and grind lock faces. Basicaly I dont do anything with it you cant do with a normal work rest but I like that it is easy to drop outta the way..... 2thumbs

Les, I saw where you said you are using a creramic material in your tumbler. The only ceramic material I have ever used was some that was made to be bead blasting material. What is the material you use and where do you get it? Thanks

Les George

Okay good...just wanna make sure your set up in the house, not outside or in the shop where it can vent and off-gas.

I like to keep all the fumes and gasses contained, that way they can't get out and cause trouble... ;)
