Get a grinder at Harbor Freight for $59.95!
Is that considered "old growth"?
I predict, eventually, "Richlite"!
Kinda like our favorite Henry and some of his "models"...
fwiw, i got this (Gerber Prodigy) from Amazon for $40. stainless steel, usa made, full tang with skull crusher, lifetime warranty and case
So I rewarded myself for quitting smoking. I just ordered the AMK 77 2x72 grinder.
Classes don't start back until August and I have been jonesing to get some work done. I have blades and metal just sitting there and it's killing me.
So now I can get to work.
let me know if you want me to teach you how to make a real Freddy Glove.
I've made close to 20.
you'll need knife steel, brass sheet, and copper sheet, and an old leather glove.
Sounds pretty neat. I might have to hit you up!
you'll need brass rivets, a torch, and some metal clamps, and electrical solder w resin/fluxcore.
tin snips, sand block (for metal)
metal folding hand clamp, ... and i used a broom handle and brake mallet to shape the rounded finger sections.
it's a fun project and when you first put it on and it makes those same loud "clacking" noises like the movie?.... it's pretty freaking cool.
Cool, my girl and I like to watch Forged in Fire....
Great work. I love knives.
Alright, lets get something started!
Hack, I just love it when you guys on here build stuff from scratch. That is excellent design and function.
I like that.
What a fascinating thread. I have nothing but admiration for y'all's knife making skills.
Thank you, but it's really no big deal. I got lucky and found a class that actually teaches with hands on. I love it and took it upon myself to take if further.
Anyone can do this.
Off last week to get some work started on the shop...
Hard part is done now. If I had the time it would go quickly now.
I don't know how well you joined the 4 x 4's together but "usually" it's better not to have
all the joints in a straight line unsupported. Although there doesn't seem to be a big span
in between the blocks.
Just sayin', to avoid you future problems.
Lots a fun waiting on the night crew at Lowe's... What a joke.
Finally loaded up. And fresh start on Saturday am...
Stuff goes fast once you get the foundation done... No more digging!!
Got a dance floor done!
Subfloor down, ready for another trailer load of wood. Not enough time in the days...
I'm floored by your progress
Looking good. I think I counted the joists and plywood correctly, is that 12' x 36'?
Ah, now I see the ripped plywood on the far side of your last photo. That's an interesting foundation. Up here in Wisconsin we have to deal with frost and I doubt that foundation would pass code. Footings need to be buried about 48" deep. We can build smaller sheds on floating foundations, or on floating slabs but not that large of building.
