    Calling all Wood Wizzards

    Looks like Jacaranda de Bahia or Pau Ferro. The smell when grinding is sweet, imho a nice fragance. Pablo

    Finger saver ring

    Today I went to my friends shop, he will do a lost PLA casting from my 3d print and from it he will make a rubber mold to see how much it shrinks so I can do new PLA rings a % bigger to compensate for shrinkage. This will take the whole week. Pablo

    Finger saver ring

    Quick update. I'll visit a friend who works with lost wax brass molds next week, he quoted me a nice price if I do the finishing! Now I'm anxious...! Settled on three sizes, 20-22-25mm rings Pablo

    Finger saver ring

    What I found using this tool is that is great for bulk removal, but up in the grind when you are about to finish, specially in thin knives like I do, I prefer to have the biological thermometer (aka finger) touching the blade. Pablo

    Finger saver ring

    What I thought would be a good idea is to drill a 1/8" hole below the knife seat and glue a broken carbide tool there, I left the space for it, maybe leaving a small divot as a guide for someone wanting to do this is a good idea. Didn't think about the prices, but as posted above, the one I saw...

    Finger saver ring

    Oh I see, but we all know a belt grinder is not a lathe that can grab a finger, an arm or a whole person... Worst accident I had at the grinder was a 36 grit belt seam that failed and left an interesting mark for a few days in my torso and of course scratches here and there... Pablo

    Finger saver ring

    Thought about this, but that will leave the index finger away from the blade, I found that the closer the index it to the belt the better. Cast brass or aluminum are my options, plastic could work but I think it will deteriorate sooner than later. Pablo

    Finger saver ring

    We do have similarly sized fingers, 18 is a snug fit, 20 leaves a small space which I feel the most comfortable. My first prototypes were larger holes and I scrapped that idea Pablo

    Finger saver ring

    Lmao zombie green, these are prototypes I made with my 3D printer, the plan is to make them in brass or stainless. What do you guys thing about the diameter of the finger hole? Pablo

    Finger saver ring

    Not long ago I saw a video for a grinder ring and it seems the idea got stuck in my mind... So I put it to work instead of procrastinating remembering videos :D The idea is to save the pain for your index finger when grinding long freehand sessions, I use it for the bulk removal and it works...

    Bevel grinding jigs

    I get the sarcasm :D but always there is room for improvement. I don't agree to the statement that says that is better to start with a jig, because it delays the proper learning, what a jig does for a newbie IMHO is to cope with frustration since the skills aren't there yet. Buy if you use and...

    Bevel grinding jigs

    I grind free hand, tried to like jigs but to date I found none of my liking. Need to try the Nathan parallelogram idea. I can't even grind with a helping table on the grinder, 100% free hand... Pablo

    Electro etching 14C28N and AEB-L

    Remember that darkening is an oxidative process, after etching spray with windex, rub and it should be fine. Pablo
