    Looks like you smashed that other finger not too long ago. Do you enjoy pain?

    With a table saw, you are lucky it wasn't much worse! For something as small a piece of knife handle material, table saw doesn't provide enough precision or control. A hand chisel and Dremel tool would be easier.

    I completed the cut today on the ts with no drama, doing it the way I should have Monday. This sort of thing can be done safely, but shortcuts are NOT appropriate!
    The slot I wanted to cut was too thin for a chisel at 3/32nds, although I could have reground a chisel to do the job.

    Haha. Sounds a lot like me. I tend to get just a little bit too keen on finishing what I am doing and I end up doing stupid things or doing things the stupid way that sets me back a lot more time than it would take to do it slowly and correct the first time Slashed fingers, cracked handles, broken drill bits... you name it.

    After many years of making custom jewelry I learned to have the patients to do things correctly, one step at a time, but every now and then....................

    Progress on the peoject. The hadle is assembled, now I'm cutting the bevels with a plane that I built. It takes such smooth cuts that there is no tear out.

    Thanks! I have a jug of anti-scale compound coming Monday and will be able to heat treat the blade then.
