  1. Looks great Jennifer ! Been a little bit since I looked in on this forum but I just realized your just north of us about 20-25 miles. I will be watching for when the classes start.
  2. Really impressive work John, My wife and I have done a bit of slumping and fusing over the years and found it very rewarding. Still have all our equipment but haven't done any in a few years now. Dick
  3. I've been following this thread since the beginning and it is amazing how many different approaches and ideas have been shared ! You all deserve applause for your willingness to enlighten others on your designs and techniques ! I have a box full of openers I've made in spare time, close to retirement but not yet . I've made wizards, railroad spike, bird head ,and just twisted but none look as awesome as those presented here. More practice I guess but that's fine I enjoy the challenge.
  4. Really nice ! The forged finish really makes it.The handles are another craft by themselves and very well done. What did you use for material if you don't mind me asking?
  5. Great idea on the spatulas ! Nice clean lines,very nice.
  6. Welcome Chris, My wife and I rode through Newport News on a vacation ride this spring on our Indian motorcycle. Nice area !
  7. Sven, The Steel Yard in Providence holds some classes from time to time. Last fall there was a class making Damascus billets at the Worcester Center for Crafts that I took and really enjoyed. As Judson pointed out NEB would be well worth the ride if you can make the meet.
  8. Charles, you your dad and family are in my thoughts and prayers. Tough times and tougher with the holidays. Hoping you can relax and be with family during the holidays. Dick
  9. Hoping for a full and speedy recovery! Dick
  10. Happy Birthday Frosty, hope it was very enjoyable and relaxing ! Dick
  11. Well if that was your first welded billet I have to tell you it turned out real nice! Looking forward to more photos and the next billet when you actually plan out the stack. Great job on the blade. Dick
  12. Welcome back Sam and a Happy , Healthy and Prosperous New Year to you! I was in Hamilton about 20 yrs. ago looking at a CNC router for the company I work for and always wanted to go back to visit the Aircraft Museum not far from there. Dick
  13. Here is a post that covers one made by a member here. Post #19 has a pdf. that gives a good example of the sizing. I have a Joppa glass ceramic burner for glass work made in New Hampshire and can give you the dimensions of that as well if you'd like. Mine is a blown burner using a small squirrel cage blower.

  14. That is a stunning piece of work ! All of them,metal,wood and leather. Dick
  15. Very nice ! What did you do to get that finish on the blade? Really nice look!! Dick
  16. Lyle, Thanks for posting that link. I remember seeing one of your cable knives in New Hampshire and it was real clean throughout. Dick
  17. You are off to a great start ! Keep the pictures coming. Dick
