I Forge Iron

Timken made in USA knife


Recommended Posts

So started this project several years ago..   2001 F350 front wheel bearing out race.. 4X4

I put it on hold because I could not figure out a good way to mount the blade into a handle and still have "Timken ###### USA" 

Well it came to me in a brain storm and figured it out.. 

Not to bad for a prototype..   I am gifting it to somebody. 

The blade since it was orginally backwards had to be pushed back.. When I did this I lost some material..   I was not able to put a full sweep in for a skinning knife like I wanted to.. 

So had to modify it on the shape. 

Fitup was excellent on the the ledge.

That no longer even remotely looks like an LM104911.  That aspect alone makes a tale worth telling!

OK, I came across an image of an LM104911 with the stamping on the periphery, as opposed to the face - that is a bit easier to fathom...
