  1. Looks like a slashing tool but first thing I thought of was hand slipping up. Nice looking.
  2. Small Bowie, 6 5/8ths blade, from leaf spring.
  3. Wire and it still works. Thanks, all, for kind remarks.
  4. Today's offering.....muahahaha!!!! Ratcheting box end wrench welded to a rasp file blade. Halloween special No. 13
  5. I try and keep work surfaces and equipment clear. I made a couple of passes on my belt grinder then (untypically) stepped to the side to check my work when BAM!!!, the belt broke. Seems it picked up a piece of metal. That was my last quick cutting belt so now I need to order some more.
  6. I try and treat files as though they are 1095. Thanks for the kind words. <script type="text/javascript"> //
  7. Top is a drop point ground from a rasp with Elk handle and brass from old elevator rail. Middle is Tanto point ground from a small rasp with White tail handle and brass from an old elevator hand rail. Bottom is a solid brass scrapper I bought at the scrapyard ($1) and put my own handle and pins on.
  8. Moves around too much. Plan on addressing that in the a.m.
  9. Built this stand this morning for my post vise and sheet metal stake. 10 x 10 x .625 I beam. Legs are 2x2x.375 tubing. Should be able to withstand the West Texas wind.
  10. What is the point in heat treating a RR spike?
  11. As you would 1095 even though I don't know what it is.
  12. Maybe someone or nobodyspecial can help me think up a name for this one, ( besides the obvious "unfinished").
