  7. How to resist spirit dyes.

    Search for liquid latex and you'll find it cheaper in larger quantities i purchased a quart abour 5 years ago for approximately $12 and its still good. Kept in cool dark cabinet.

    Thanks, Fixed height. Thanks, look for micro bearings, these have none only tight tolerances and synth grease. IMHO I feel that bearings and spinning the saddle for 2 minutes straight thing are over hyped selling points, as long as you can get a smooth action from the barrel you're golden. The blade angle, sharpness, and polish are key. I prefer the smooth finish over an knurl finish anyday day even if the knurl and is not aggressive. No issues at all for me. Thanks for the kind words.
  9. New swivels

    Made a couple of new swivel knives 100% hand made no purchase shtuff.. 6061 aluminum body and saddle, brass body and 304 SS saddle. Both sporting 4140 HT blades made by me..needed somthing skinnier than 1/2" and 5/8" that's what my other hand made barrels are, so I decided 3/8" was best. Enjoy and as always comments are welcomed.
  10. Hot scribe?

    Very beautiful work.. and i'm sure the technique has its merit, although hardening the edges of a cut wouldn't suit my style of tooling in most cases. I can see where it would be worth the added effort, and it obviously works!
  11. Very very classy looking work I like it clean, simple great job! One question why did you choose to not do the edges and black just a curiosity, and for my take I think black would have really set the color that you chose or that the customer chose off very well nonetheless again very classy work!
  12. Sisters of the blade

  13. Sisters of the blade

  14. Sisters of the blade

  15. Anyone Make Metal Burnishers

    Ok so it seems this was missed by me...i gave.. yeah that's right gave @OLDNSLOWone i made a while back after modifying it to accept a 1/2" diameter shaft, he may still have it and can tell you about the performance...i never got along with it...i prefer Delrin, and have made a few. But I always find myself going back to burnishing by hand with Delrin. It is slick and non-porous you would think that it would perform the same as stainless steel which is what the one that I gave away was made of 304 stainless steel to be exact 1 inch diameter. Although I would be interested in finding out how well aluminum would work my only fear and reasoning behind not doing one in aluminum is that there would be transfer to the leather from the aluminum. If anyone knows the wiser please inform me cuz I would like to know
