    New Commission Knife in the Works

    I have three hidden tang blades on my bench & I’m terrified to move forward on them!

    New Commission Knife in the Works

    To my eye, removing the extra parts will leave you with a cleaner & more symmetrical look.

    New Commission Knife in the Works

    I actually have a very similar task. A friend wants my version of an old Case Apache. He doesn’t care if it’s hidden or full tang, so I was planning on doing full. But I like your idea of doing one of each just for the experience, so I may try that as well. Nothing like doubling the work &...

    240V Plug Adapter Question

    I have 3 independent 50 amp circuits in my workshop. I did that specifically for the welder, but I didn’t have the workshop layout finalized when electric was roughed in, and the cost was nominal for the added flexibility of just making all of my 220v outlets 50amp capable.

    240V Plug Adapter Question

    I’ll make you a deal, MTBob. I’ll call you if my shop burns down, and you call me if your shop burns down. But only if it’s an electrical fire originating from the plug adapter. We’re in this together now, but don’t be calling me because your shop burned from doing those fantastical FIF flame...

    Might need a break

    Agreed. Time to hit the sketchbook. If you get a paper cut doing that, it's time to come to a full stop on anything & everything knife related and pull out the bourbon. If that's before noon, that's ok. Safety first! :cool:

    You are very welcome & I’m glad you are pleased, Ken! I look forward to hearing your (or your wife’s) feedback and critiques after you have a little cutting board time with it. It’s my first real kitchen knife, so I’m interested in your take on ergonomics, blade geometry, edge characteristics...

    240V Plug Adapter Question

    I just took delivery of a Jen-Ken VAB-21. It has a NEMA 6-30P plug. My shop is wired with NEMA 6-50R receptacles. Is there any risks or problems with using an adapter vs. swapping out to a 6-30R receptacle at the outlet closest to where the kiln will live?
