    First time using Vinegaroon...

    The best I've used is Fiebings Pro. But black is always hinky for me. Minimum of 3 coats. It takes so much dye to get it looking good. I'd use something that worked better for me, too, if'n I'd came across something I liked better.

    Resolene works to seal the dye against rub off as well.

    Sumthin new (to me, anyway)

    So I asked my very smart nephew who has a degree in tree stuff (that's my country way of saying he knows stuff about forests and their applications for structural purposes, and what effects different conditions had on strength and blah blah blah) about the heat treated woods (cooked at like 350F...

    Leather Question - Color Transfer

    1) Stain. Fiebing's Pro Dye much preferred. 2) Quick rub with cloth while still damp. 3) Condition once dry (post stitch/assembly) with Neatsfoot or Golden Mink oil. Let it dry a day. 4) Top coat with 50/50 Resolene and water for a soft/satin sheen. Straight Resolene can get pretty glossy...

    Metric Drill Bit Sizes

    Metric Drill Bit Sizes

    I like at least .003" clearance but not over .007" clearance. I think those you picked would be perfect.

    Re-handle opinions…

    Me too! I thought the final owner of the knife did the handle job. Modifying your work to pass off to someone else is another matter.

    410, 420 steel prices.

    Some materials in some shapes have been non existent and/or stupidly priced. It's hit and miss but there is some more "common" stuff that has been vapor ware. We waited 6 months for an overhead door spring that's nothing special. But nobody was rolling it due to either material supply or product...

    Grinder kit ups and downs

    Most motors will not run on a speed controller. You only see low HP/watt PSC motors work reliably like that.

    What's going on in your shop?
