    Is this Digital pyrometer any good??

    What I am trying to do is check a couple of installed thermocouples and PID units for true readings, so to speak!! That way if they are reading off I can re-calibrate the reading. That is why I want to build an accurate portable unit!!! Come to think of it I have a thermocouple very similar to...

    Is this Digital pyrometer any good??

    I am looking for a good digital pyrometer for reading temp. Something I can move around to double check temp readings I am getting! Is this any good!! Or should I be looking for something else!

    The Fix

    Cazador, this statement was not directed at you or your customer service!! Early in my knife making I ended up with such a wood tip on a knife design. I have worked with wood all my life, and did not like the idea of that area. So I re-worked the design of the handle to get rid of it. Now that...

    The Fix

    Nice fix. That is something I have thought about every since is saw the first knife with a handle such as that one!! In fact I mentioned that very problem in a thread a while back! I have always wondered how many of them ended up the same way after the customer got them!!

    Casey this knife reminds me of a Randall knife!! Take a look at this site and you will see what I am speaking of!! The older works actually done by him are slightly different but similar to your knife!! Two thumbs up on this one!!

    That is the perfect choke up to use when skinning that delicate area with too large a knife, or one that has gotten too gushy! And yes their is such a word!! The words I underline all fit for the meaning!! gush·y [ˈɡəSHē] ADJECTIVE excessively effusive. "her gushy manner" synonyms...

    Now I am really gonna mess some stuff up!!!

    I will tell you this about Cactus Juice. Once you pull the vacuum, be sure to not let is sit in the solution, like a month, or more!! :eek: I was told by the Cactus Juice guy that sometime the act of pulling the vacuum on the mixed chemicals it will harden on it's own. I know cause now I have...

    Chip out tactics

    Back the piece, sharp bit and easy on the pressure when it is about to cut thru!! Another thing I have done is clamp the scales on the handle and drill the hole with a small bit first. Then drill the scales on both sides with a larger size bit from the outside to inside. That way if you get...
