    Very Cool!
    The pattern in the steel is looking like wood grain.

    What does the idler arm setup look like on your surface grinder? I gave away a surface grinder I got when a local factory closed down- looks like I may be back in the market. Every time I get rid of a tool (or knife or gun or ...), I regret it.

    Devin - what type of band saw blades are you using? I have a brand called Die Master made for me by Dinosaw here in Hudson, NY and they last 8 - 10 conversions on heat treated steel. That includes a Hiromoto AS - that was a tough one. They are soft near the butt, but it's tougher cutting as you approach the choil. I use a 30 weight/naptha blend for lubricant/cooling. That reminds me I need to order a few new ones.

    I'm not sure what brand I use, it is a bi-metal M42 blade. I only cut annealed material with mine though. Sounds like your getting pretty good use out of yours.
    We use a .045 x 4 inch cut off blade on a die grinder for anything that is hardened.

    Thanks Hoss - I'm going to look into rigging up an air grinder this summer. I can probably make a tap for extra air to keep the work cool.

    Cutting the horn into useable pieces. This is a shed from around these parts that was given to me by a friend. It's a little bleached out right now but we'll put some color back into it before we're done.
