    Thinning behind the edge - how much is enough?

    I've never been much a measurements guy when it comes to sharpening. Thin it until it cuts well, but doesn't collapse/chip/deform/etc. It's kind of a trial and error with every knife. However, 1 cm is a decently wide bevel and would seem to suggest you thinned the shoulder. I've personally...

    You think that's real wood? I was wondering, but had decided it wasn't.

    Do you have? Lucky if you do.

    How many amps and what kind of plug for my 220 volt plug.

    You don't need per say. Running one line from your current panel to a sub panel and then distributing from there is easier than running a new circuit from the existing panel to the shop every time you add another piece of equipment. Getting a subpanel, or at least prepared for one now, will...

    Kind of assumed that's what a belt furnace was, but didn't know enough to be sure. :D Thanks Larrin, I appreciate it.

    How many amps and what kind of plug for my 220 volt plug.

    I would put, and did put for that matter, a 30 amp circuit in. If I recall correctly, my grinder motor (the only thing 220 volt I currently have out there) only pulls like 8 amps at 220 volt. I put the 30 amp in case I ever got all carried away and wanted to put in a small subpanel to run...

    Whats wrong with all of you? (Thread will close 7-1)

    Indeed it was. Never thought I'd ever loose sleep over ITK when they asked me to be a mod. Boy did I get that wrong.

    Heat Treating

    Larrin - I'm sorry, I meant "Batch Furnace", not "Batch Hardening". There is also a "Belt Furnace" option, which I don't understand so I thought an oven like we're talking about would be the "Batch Furnace". I would want the "Piece Hardening with Deep Freezing", correct?

    Thanks Larrin. Not sure about the RapidShare thing Larrin, I cannot find a download link. Don't know, could be missing something. The 13C26 link worked though. So that I understand, I assume what we're talking about here is the "Batch Hardening" tables, yes? If I'm reading that...
