Good Morning Ladies and Gents, I seem to have run into a dilemma with a few projects I'm currently working on and need some advice. Had some concept designs that I've been mulling over in my head and finally decided to actually put them into steel. They came out nicely, the problem is knowing what I can coat them in to keep them from rusting/corroding. Looking for something that will hold up for a while, but easy to put on finished pieces. Most of the pieces have moving parts so coating them completely in an Epoxy/Resin would require me to have to coat them previously to assembly, which may prove difficult. Anyways, any advice would be great. Thanks Kermit.
I 've made a few hidden tang knives and used various brands of Epoxy, all of which worked fine, but I don't like using it. Shelf life after opening is too short, most set up too fast for me, and assorted other real (or imagined reasons). Does anyone know what knifemakers used before epoxy was invented.
So Christmas is coming up and I wanted to make a knife for my Father and my Father in law. I forged out a couple of knives from an old farriers rasp, made a brass guard and used a couple of old antlers for the handles. Everything is fitted how I want so I put some two part epoxy into the antler and around the edge to secure the guard to the handle. The packaging says that the stuff sets in 5 minutes and cures in 30 but I let them sit over night (so like 7 hours) and the epoxy is still runny. Is this normal and the packaging is just bs or should I take it all apart and try again with another type of glue?
