  1. Traitor, Its all good most people outside the Jefferson county Line prefer the blue,
  2. IT would seem the creator has gone missing however it would still seem he has enough information on his github to still do it yourself, I think I am going to take the next couple of weeks to study what he is doing and see if I can remember any of my digital and semi conductor stuff I learned in college to recreate it.
  3. I am about an hour from Knob Creek, I haven't been (at least to the gun show) in about 4 years but we make about once a year to actually use the range.
  4. So I had to take some pictures today of our shop because for a possible move. Figured I share what I do all the time. This is a small lathe Pair of Old school Bridgeports, One made in 1958 the other 1964. And one of the High Pressure Valves I assemble on a regular basis.
  5. The best drill bits I used at work are PartMaster Cyrobits CyroBits They cut mild steel with ease and I have had no problem when ever I needed them to cut tool steel.
  6. https://goo.gl/DJP3vq Box weave I believe is what you would call it. The picture is before I took a wire brush to it. I am not going to use this one. I had an idea to incorporate some steel balls into it. I am not going to share a picture of my smoker as its the project I am learning to weld and welding sheet metal with a stick welder for my first time does not look very pretty at all.
  7. Whats going on fellas? I am from Shelbyville, KY and honestly have not really smithed any thing yet. I have helped some friends do some castings, but I think I got the "bug", My grandfather gave he an old Miller stick welder from the early 70s which means it will last forever and I started my first welding project, a smoker. I do enjoy working with metal, some of the best days at work is on the manual Mill or lathe making "Custom" or "Just get that <blanking> job done parts." Any ways, I been planing ahead to make handles for my smoker door because I am getting pretty close to that point, so I got some 1/4" round bar, used my acetylene torch and did a simple handle braid. Now I am hooked already, bought more metal and have several ideas on the ways to make this simple braid even more cool. (at least in my mind) So i am sure in the next coming months and weeks I will be going to flea market and see if I can pick up any old black smithing tools and reading this forum for the tons of information that is available. See you around.
