    Do you own an oscillating tool??

    That's pretty darn sassy Chris!! I love it!! Do you remember what it's called.....that would make searching for it on Amazon a bunch easier! :)

    Do you own an oscillating tool??

    If so, then you own something that can be a great help with "hand" sanding! This lupus stuff, has proven a challenge for many of the things I do. Hand sanding is a biggie....may hand hurt so bad I can hardly grip the sanding stick. So, I found something that has helped me tremendously. An...

    Bonding and trust of my dog?

    I gotta wonder if the OP is serious, and thinks this is a dog owner's forum? Or maybe a troll?? I wasn't going to respond in this thread, but Whew! Boy, whomever wrote the information in that link is educated WAY beyond their intelligence! I've been a dog owner and trainer for most of my...

    Ladder question

    Any "stock removal" damascus pattern (such as ladder....where you remove stock in order to create patter) can be easily erased by too much grinding. You cannot just make a ladder pattern billet, then stock remove it. The ladder will be erased through grinding. With any stock removal damascus...

    Keeping bevel clean while gluing up?

    I neglected to say anything about gluing, but was reminded when I read Chris's post. Always totally finish out the front of scales, or guard before gluing. False fit everything (put it in place in such a manner that it's removable), then use Vaseline to cover the blade, and front of scales or...

    Keeping bevel clean while gluing up?

    I don't use anything to cover blades, but just try to be mindful, cautious, and blow away swarf with compressed air as I go. Most "staining" that can happen from various wood dusts are easily cleaned up during final finishing with a dab of flitz or similar metal polish. Some woods, such as...

    Controls on H/T ovens

    Because what I heat treat contains such a tiny percentage of stainless steel, I just use foil wrap.... I've been on the same roll for nearly a decade now. I never heat treat carbon/alloy steels in the oven..... I prefer/use my salt tank.... I do a lot of differential heat treating too. ;)...

    Controls on H/T ovens

    IMO.....Yes. The required hold times and ramp requirements for heat treating most Stainless steels make a digitally controlled oven a necessity if you intend to heat treat stainless steels. Most of the stainless steels will also require some type of "shielding" during heat treating.... unless...

    Controls on H/T ovens

    If "best" in a heat treat oven means holding the tightest temp tolerances, then among the commonly known brands, Paragon is first in line, followed closely by Evenheat. Evenheat has really hit a "home run" in regards to controllers. The TAP is simply the best thing out there right now in...

    Ameribrade Rotary Platen - Reviews?

    I've not used that specific rotary platen, but it looks a lot like the prototype from Beaumont. Personally, if you're gong to have a rotary platen, I'd go with the one from Beaumont. More versatile, and better/heavier built.
