What's going on in your shop?

Yeah. If you need one buy five… that’s my strategy anyway.
Yep! Same with small twist drills.

By the way - if you haven't already seen these, Google "Circuit Board Drills". They're solid carbide and they're pretty affordable. The smallest one I've seen was 6 thou. So, 1-1/2 sheets of 20lb printer paper in diameter. Not sure what you'd need something like that for in knife making, but it's nice to know they exist.

What amazes me is that someone figured out a way to make a spiral flute bit out of sintered metal that small and THEN figured out how to sharpen it. I mean, I've reduced diameters on 1/16" twist drill before and I've resharpened them. That's a pain in the butt. A twist drill that's 10 times smaller in diameter than a 1/16" bit - must be some tiny CNC grinder or somethin'.

Sorry to hear that. Nice knife, though and I like that added touch.


Edit - YOU took my roll of string! I was looking for it.

That is so funny because my dad said the same thing when I posted this on Facebook!

Great minds think alike. :D




I found my string!

It was behind the anvil.

Oops! :D

By the way, if you need cheap, strong string, buy a string line. A "Mason's Line". You have to be careful with the type of knots you tie in it, because it'll slip with certain knots (like braided fishing line, but not as bad). BUT, other than that, good stuff and it's cheap. It'll hold something like 150 pounds.
