    Keeping things flat and parallel without a surface grinder?

    Not true. magnet catches all the dust and the ways are covered. Been doing this for 7 years or better The only two surface grinders I have used had either a ruby grinding wheel and the other a 72 inch belt attachment. String me up if you wish Bruce, but don,t tie the knot till you see one...

    No pattern slipjoint tutorial

    I make numerous patterns using the the no pattern method and all I use is 1/8 inch particle board. I just made one yesterday that will be added to my list of folders. You don't need metal to make these and they are just fun to do.

    Plasma cutter

    I haven't used my plasma cutter for years. When I did I was pleased. I just used an angle cutter to clean up and profile. Now its forging, you know with a press, trip hammer and a rolling mill. Oops forgot the anvil.

    No pattern slipjoint tutorial

    Something that I worked out as I spend many hours in my shop. Seven days a week. I was working on a pattern and was measuring the tang for accuracy and it just grew from there. I found it allows more creativity for the next one. Thanks Mark, love the thumbs up. Jim

    custom sheath worn 2 ways

    I have been making a horizontal sheath for years now and have been asked to make one that may be worn both ways. Mine looked very cumbersome and were. You have nailed it right on. Good job.

    No pattern slipjoint tutorial

    I wrote up a tutorial on making slipjoint knives without using a pattern. How to create your own instead....It is a small PDF file Let me know your thoughts, my object is not how to make a slipjoint in its entirety, just showing how to get creative.

    No pattern slipjoint

    TA, I just heard from one of my forum friends that he read in another forum that you also make your folders using a no pattern method. (If that is what it is called.) Is this why your folders are such a random variety. Jim
