  1. Even if it did, you’ve just invested heavily in approaching a result that’s still not quite as good as simply standing it on end. Save your time, money, and materials for projects that will actually have a better ROI.
  2. The same critique still applies: a medieval knife (especially one with a PW blade) would still have a refined handle.
  3. @DuEulear isn’t saying it makes it look medieval, @ThomasPowers, but midevil. “Midevil” means “kinda medieval-like, as perceived by people who trust art directors more than they trust historians”. That said, it is a lovely bit of pattern-welding. I’d personally like to see a bit more of a diamond cross-section to the blade, à la Bill Moran.
  4. Farrier rasp teeth

    I have a jar of undead oregano somewhere in my cupboard.
  5. Picked this up beside the road. I think the thin bit is stainless, but I’m not sure yet.
  6. What Did You do in the Shop Today?

    Welded feet and stretchers onto the RR track stand/portable hole.
  7. For me, it was less traumatic and more amusing. I’m simply a hobbyist and fairly new to welding, so there I was, happily welding along when things just stopped working. OH NO! Did I blow the fuse? No. Did I trip the overheat protector? No. Did I birdnest the wire? No. WHAT’S GOING ON?!?? Wait a sec...the spool’s empty. Never mind.
  8. This is the loaner, which still has the regulator and hose in their original packaging — and no tank. So, flux-core for me.
  9. Gotta start somewhere! John Major wasn’t much of a rake, but he did replace Thatcher.
  10. What Did You do in the Shop Today?

    Lo, how a rose e'er blooming....
  11. Just A Box Of Dirt; see THIS THREAD or THIS ONE.
  12. I've seen one like that before, but I can't remember where.
  13. What Did You do in the Shop Today?

    Nonexistent, but we did have quite a decent drama department.
