Things are about to get busier...

For those who live in areas where firearms are not an option and those that are smart enough to have a back up.

Honnestly, take some canvas and a can of spray paint, and start using the sheet as a stencil. A lot of people would buy that.

+1 That's a great idea. Would also make for a pretty raw repeating pattern on a hooded sweatshirt.

That would look sick hanging on a garage wall.

I've thought about spray painting it flat black, hanging it at an art gallery, naming it something like "Machinery of War", and selling it for a million bucks. :twisted:

Azrael - I'll cut out some of the larger pieces left over and forge them sometime down the road.

Seriously, I bet if you painted it and put it up for sale it would go fast. Shipping might be a pain, but people buy crazier stuff on ebay all the time.

Dig it! Does that obviate the need for a warning sign on that window?

Looking good as always, Storm Crow. :)

Been working on a new stand for my KMG to accommodate an extra-long work rest for jig grinding waterjet cut bush sword blanks.

This Little Rok is the first of my waterjet cut blanks to get ground on it. Still a bit of tweaking on my process with the new setup, but I think I'm most of the way there.

Wait 'til it's finished. :ohdear:

I modified my test jig with polypropylene bearing surface sourced from a Wal*Mart cutting board, held on with the motley assortment of bolts I had around the shop. Slides much better without being too slick.
