Emails and PM's replied guys. Like i said just allow 12-24 hours at most for a return email or PM. And When I have a bunch of scales for sale at a time I will post them here or in the For sale area. Thank you! And anyone with a Southard or 0550 please let me know if you want a scale.
Looks like a generous and helpful member is sending me an 0550 for a template.
And thanks for the support guys, im looking forward to proving myself!

I did not get your email, email@example.com
Hopwe you will have canvas micarta for Benchmades at some point.
#69 in RyanW's 2014 GAW
I have some canvas micarta on order.
Just send me an email or PM with what Benchmade you speak of.
I just want to say. Thank you all for your support. I will not post again until next week when I post pictures of recent work unless needed. I have about a half dozen jobs now as well as producing grips in batches. I'm going to post pictures next week when I get the funds for a camera. Yes, I know, not expensive. But when I invest in myself it takes a month worth of work to even begin to make any profit. Although I am no stranger to custom manufacturing. Hopefully you will like my work. As I said, for now- Comfort, Customer Satisfaction, and Finish are #1. After this first month, I will come up with some new designs and methods for different materials.

Hopefully some of the pics will be of my knifes!
With about a Dozen jobs on my plate for this week as well as the grips that I will produce. I will keep return time 1-2 weeks. Im sure sooner for most of you. Manix XL, Sage 2, Southard, 0550, Roadhouse, Lahar, Chive and a few others in the works.
I have also found an affordable arc, Tung Carbidizer to treat frame, linerlock face if anyone needs it while in the shop. It is on its way from a pal next week.
As asked in PM's as well as emails, Yes. I am fine with finishing hardware as well as making backspaces when applicable. As we discuss everything in the emails as we go. I will often make a suggestion after some work is done. Changing factory finish is not always a good idea. Regardless of it being free or not. If it makes the knife look more presentable. I will offer. That goes for damaged locks/parts. If your knife has blade play or factory issues with fit and finish. I will work out all the kinks with your permission before it comes back to you. Happy knife , Happy Customer. Step by step.
Suggestions are welcome if anything in my work process is unclear, but I feel I have covered everything in the head post at this point.
Tyronethepro, I wont bother you again, but your email still does not work FYI.

I have finally ordered some basic Equipment to move my work into my Neighborhood. My current travel time is 2 hours round trip to my work shop and that leaves me with only 3 days a week with my wife in college and two little girls. That means 12 hour days when Im there.
However, I am happy to announce I have My new Drill Press, Band Saw, Belt/Disk Sander, Engraving tools, tumbler and more on the way. I also am building a custom Router Table and much more. But sadly I have to leave my Bridgeport mill out of town. So I need to find new and creative ways for certain types of milling.
With all of your support and a few weeks of time I should be set up for full time in my own town! LOL. Im taking a bit of a gamble and I know it will pay off if I keep you all happy and coming back for more. I am working on a website as well with a friend that does that for a living.
Anyway that is as much of an update as I can give. Soon I can let my creative side take over, and let my passion for art and my skill with natural free hand design take over. I'm going to take a deep breath and pray that I don't let my family down. I hope this information is not being to candid, its just on my mind. So I need to vent out some of what im doing before I give myself a heart attack.
Take Care and GET A GRIP!
Also I want to note. With the advice of an online pal here ( thanks again, I look forward to brainstorming often) and my research I want to get some more High End material in stock. Once I get all of my current jobs up to date and complete. I will able to afford a nice stock pile of C-tek , TeroTuf, Kirinite and a little bit of carbon fiber. I will always love micarta and G10 but I need to experiment as well.
Watching both of my daughters three days a week while my wife is in college makes my schedule a bit more wacky, So hopefully everyone gets emails at a decent hour. Im often up until 1AM why they are resting to get paperwork done.
