    Favorite Shop NONNECCESSITY?

    Mine has to be my MAME machine. Over in the corner of my shop is an original 1978 Atari Breakout fullsize arcade machine. Inside the machine I have stripped out all the internals and installed a computer-driven arcade emulator attached to a vertical 19" monitor that fits the original bezel...

    Personalizer or Personalizer Plus??

    I thought i'd also add that I use stencils made by Ernie from I actually never have thought much about my mark....its always been a small afterthrought. I don't do anything special or over-think anything. I tape the stencil to the steel, dip the marking pad into...

    Personalizer or Personalizer Plus??

    From my understanding the "Mark" is just putting a layer of black junk into your etch while the "Etch" is actually removing metal. I Etch mine to desired depth, then mark. I follow up with polishing the area with mothers mag polish, which then deposits a lot more black down into the deep...

    help me out - I need pic's of jigs - Calling all jig pics!

    I am 100% sure your jig works better than mine, haha! Mine was limited in that it needed to be slid across the tool rest. This caused problems as i couldn't properly "follow" the blade shape. It was also complicated because once you grind one side of the blade, you'd go to grind the other...

    Thanks! I have a love-hate relationship with Ironwood. On one hand, I honestly haven't ever seen a wood take as gorgeous a finish or look as good as ironwood (top-shelf ironwood, at least). One the other hand, my tools hate it, my belts hate it, it irritates the heck out of my nose throat...

    help me out - I need pic's of jigs - Calling all jig pics!

    This is exactly what I do from time to time. My grinding jig consists of a single piece of 5$ angle iron and a pair of vice grips. I vice grip the blade to the angle iron which holds the blade at 90 degrees. I then just adjust the platen on the grinder to what i want and move the ange iron...

    Latest Rescued Animal

    I'd pay good money to see the former owners tied to a stake overnight with a frozen bowl of water to drink. Any chance you know their names? I'm sure some would love to do a bit of internet sleuthing so we can send some hate their way.
