    So if we knew what the DS cardboard sleeve weighs, we could actually compare the two.;):D

    Hey, that’s terrific—thanks! Great to have them on the same scale!:thumbsup:

    Looks like the AD6 got a weight savings benefit from the higher grind and swedge that is even greater than the weight saved by the fullers on the DS. Plus somewhat improved cutting geometry for the AD. Good to know!:cool:

    Had a sorta similar thing happen to me. I finally stripped my DS6. After I thought I had all the carburization (or whateveryoucallit!) off it, I went inside and cleaned up. It and me. lol and behold, no sooner than I got it wiped off, I saw red rust start showing up in places. Back to the Dremel polishing. One more round, and that took care of it. Never had to go to sanding it.

    Think I like it just where it is now. I’ll try to post photos as soon as I can.

    I've been really busy ever since I got the stripping done. Hopefully, tomorrow... although it will probably be Friday.

    Finally got a chance to photo my stripped DS6 today, and upload them. As you can see, I missed a little of the decarb during my stripping. In the fuller, and right at the edge of the Res C. Took another whack at those spots today. I’ll have to wait a couple of days to see if that took care of it, or if I need to hit it some more. Decarb pretty well sucks.
