    No worries Robert. Good things take time. :-) I was fortunate at my house, my co-workers not so much. Two took on water. It was a heck of a flood, drainage's could not handle it all. 20-30" of rain in a two day period is just too much. I had a friend stuck in his car on I-12 East of Baton...

    Help with 1084 heat treat.....

    Jaxxas, Neat stuff. You have some very knowledgeable folks participating here, I'm in for more results. I liked what KenH mentioned regarding tongs. Might it be possible to put a wire or loop through your hole to handle the coupons with? To take the tongs out of the equation? Appreciate your...

    Stag Handles Clip Point Rasp Knife- Two Requests

    What John said for sure. The right side seems to be "rougher" than the left, I'd try to get them balanced out. Love the handle butt. Sheath I think a "frontier" style with buckskin and/or some fringe would look appropriate. Congrats for getting one finished, lots of folks never get this far...

    3M Gator Trizac belts and wet grinding.

    As a new grinder I feel like they work good for me in that there appears to be more "cushion" to work with. I'm sure my feeling will change as I progress. I don't hear of many MS using them, so I'm not stuck on them. Just working for me right now. Nice to know about the water, I've always...
