    Stainless questions

    Since you don't know what kind of stainless the plates are, you wouldn't be able to heat treat them properly so I would not make knives out of them. If your friend doesn't have a use for them and you have room to stash them, I'd grab them up asap, especially if they're clean!!! :D You'll find a...

    Need help locating a member of the Sexton family

    This is a grand thing you're doing Robert! You might be looking in the wrong direction for the Sexton family. I did some Googling and the info I found does not say Mr. Sexton owned the Texas School Book Depository. Here's a link to one of the pages I found...

    Made in the USA

    I prefer "Made In The U.S.A." !! What really burns me up is when I'm in the Base Exchange on Hurlburt AFB or Eglin AFB, and 99% of the crap you pick up has a made in china sticker on it! You'd think the government would do more to support American companies!!!

    Machining WIP

    You have amazing skills Nathan!!! I wish I'd had the sense to learn the machinists' trade way back!! If you watched me use a mill or a lathe, after you stopped laughing, you'd probably yank the plug, lol!!!

    Boxes and Shipping

    I used to save the card board tubes that I got my steel in and if a knife would fit in it, just cut a chunk the length I needed and wrap the knife up and pack it real tight with news paper. I used duck tape on the ends and never had a problem!!

    Things I Used To Believe (before I learned better)

    I don't get it guys! I always wore welding gloves when I was grinding and I never had any problems!! I know tools like a drill bit or lathe or table saw can grab a glove and mess your hand up big time but I just don't see the problem with a belt grinder.

    Social networking... do you?

    My neighbor's daughter talked me into signing up with FB three or four years ago. I filled out as little information as possible and didn't post a picture or anything and within two or three days I started getting bombarded with emails from FB members asking me to be their friend!!! Crap, I...

    1st set of knives off for HT - wife took some pics

    You definitely have a future in knife making Mr. Carter!!! To fill in the gaps around the pins you can mix up a small amount of epoxy and add in some black pigment and used something to force it into the gap. Put some tape around the area first to control the mess. Once the epoxy dries, hand...

    Do walnut scales need to be stabilized?

    Hello Rocky!! If you use walnut for the handle, it does need to be stabilized! There are only a few types of wood that can handle the abuse without being stabilized. What kind of knife are you going to make and how is it going to be used? If the knife is gonna be a heavy duty user, you might...
