Re: TIPS


Mike, sorry, I dont have a digital camera. I will try to get one with a conventional 35mm and scan one to email for you, it just might take a couple of weeks.

If your drill press is like mine the chuck will not go to zero so small bits are out. I have had good luck in chucking the small bits in a pin vice and chucking the pin vice in the jacob's chuck of the drill press.

Shop Tips


Here are a few:
-Use carpet tape for holding non-magnetic items to the surface grinder. Works great.
-Goo-Gone removes ANYTHING, including carpet tape adhesive!
-Clean your etching stencils by spraying both sides with Fantastic cleaner (yellow bottle). Blot dry with a paper towel. Gets out ALL the grey residue and doesn't affect the etching solution.
-set up the drill press with a foot switch so you can have both hands free. Improves safety, too.
-A DAREX drill sharpener will do carbide bits ($$$) and will pay for itself in short order.
-Tape small, rare earth magnets to your scribers, pencils, markers, X-acto knife, etc. and just slap them on your toolbox or metal workbench. They will be right there when you need them next time. Magnets are also great for holding frequently used drill bits to the drill press.
-Zap-A Gap Green bottle (and Kicker) provide instant fixturing of handle scales, etc for drilling. Just put a drop in each hole or along the edge and spray with kicker. Rap on the bench to release.

OK-gotta go make some knives!

Re: Shop Tips


Is this EZboard weird or what? How does stuff get rearranged? I posted the first message on the fourth page of this thread. A few days later after several additional posts by others, I came back to page four and my post was gone. I thought it was deleted. Then I looked and it is now about six posts back in page three. Did some of the tips go away or did EZboard somehow extend the number of posts per page? I hope the tips did not go away.

If your tips are missing, please repost them.

Bob, I forget where, but e-z board lets you tell it how many post you want per page. If you erase your cookies you lose that info. I have mine set to 30 posts equals one page.

Thanks, Jerry.

Maybe someone out there can help. Seems to be working here ok. That would be frustrating.

Re: Shop Tips


Over the years I have been collecting conversion charts. I needed to know that this tap goes with that drill bit and there is also a screw associated but could never remember them all. Therefore conversion charts came in really handy. Every time I saw one I would pick it up and add it to a stack I already had. I had them for converting acres to feet and the like. Well, they have all been compiled into one huge chart (just call me stumpy fingers). I have been typing all day and double checking everything and think I finally got it right. If you see a mistake or have something to add, please e-mail me at <a href="mailto:bob@warnerknives.co...knives.com</a> and I will add it or correct it.

This chart is 56 pages long if you print it out so be wary of just hitting print and walking away. for those with slow modems, I'm sorry but I can't make it load any faster. It takes me about 1 minute to load at 10.2K/sec on an ISDN line. The title comes up quick but you will then have to wait a while for the rest to pop up.

Because of it's size I am not posting it hear but will link to it on my web site. Here it is, hope it is helpful to someone. The ULTIMATE Conversion Chart

Another tip.

Grinding sheep horn will keep EVERYONE out of the shop and leave you to work in peace.

Really I just wanted to bring this back to the top, hoping others will continue to add to it.

Bob, I just looked at your ultimate conversion chart. I can't believe you typed the whole thing....
What was it you were really avoiding doing?

I'm Lazy. I spent a lifetime typing so I could save a few minutes.

May someone else can save a few minutes from their lives.

I got to "G" and decided that there are not that many things in Utah to convert! Maybe in Texas, which is a much larger state....

Wow!

Thanks, Bob, for the Ultimate (really) Conversion Chart.

Wow again!

I have two large magnets on the side of my drill press. One *always* has the chuck key stuck to it. This has really saved some cussing. The second magnet has a counter sink reamer stuck on it, something I use often and it doesn't fit anywhere else.
I've also glued a magnet to my depth gauge and keep it stuck to my grinder when I check for even grind lines on both sides.

Good ideas, those magnets.

I spray my blades with Dykem and grind to the lines, on double edge knives. on hunters I just eyeball it, generally taking the grind quite close to the top of the blade back.
