    Flexible band saw blades, or maybe a .045 x 4 inch cut off wheel and a die grinder.

    Very cool thread, I only just checked in for the first time. My family on my father's side were metal workers, I wish I had paid more attention as a kid... But my Grandpa made more boring things like welding ornamental metal gates and fences, nothing exciting like forging things... Nevertheless, I feel some affinity to metal work. Maybe one day...

    Profiling, belts, center punching the tang, name stamp, and drilling the holes for the handle bolts.

    I showed a pic of the belts because this is one necessary evil. It is always exciting to get new belts and always hard to throw them away when they are worn out. I had a former employee steal about $25,000.00 worth of stuff from me and the only thing that I was upset about was that he stole about $1000.00 worth of belts. The sheriff's department got them back for me and I was one happy camper.

    Heating in the Evenheat, quenching in oil, keeping it straight in the horizontal vice, and the sub-zero quench, into the tempering oven next.

    We are leaving for graduation. We had an exchange student a few years ago from Hong Kong. She has attended a university close by and is graduating today. She is crazy. Her parents have a restaurant and she said she could cook in her bio before we picked her, I cooked a lot more Chinese food for her than she did for us. Her idea of cooking was to warm some imitation crab meat with some cheese on top in the microwave. We've had four exchange students and love all of them.

    Looking good!

    (I'm irrationally amused to see all these photos and think, "I've touched that wall/grinder/flask/oven/etc. before!" , thanks again for that, Hoss.)

    HT before grind? Doesn't it make it more difficult?

    Funny about the exchange student. Hope that the graduation was good. Has to be rewarding.
