So it's almost the college holidays, and i'm looking for something to do....
So, obviously, i'll have very little to do in the hols, so i've decided that i'll make my new forge (more and wider-spread heat) throw an anvil together, be it a railroad track anvil or whatever, and get busy.
I've got a biiig project i'm going to sit on for now (instructable on the way, but there's LOADS more work to do before i'll consider posting.) but after that's done, i'll make something and apply what i've learned to some new stuff
I thinks maybe a kerambit, perhaps...and a dagger, some stillettoes....arrowheads.....i'll work something out
But what about the opinions of the esteemed community of instructables? think i should do this?
maybe i'll get to selling some of these some day, tho i'll need more practice, first, but i think that as a hobby, it makes me happy
Bits for forge
Steel (5160's good)
Grinding Wheels (starting to wear down a bit now. these wheels've taken everything i can throw at them, but they're shrinking steadily....maybe i might buy me a belt grinder, hey, anyone know what the average price for an average grinder is?)
Air Blower That isn't Crap--i axed the last one to hell-- Any ideas? fan in a box, perhaps? both hairdryers i've used were crap. both ended up in pieces.
Actually, i like the idea of making a kerambit, seems a nice, sort of challenging thing that'll look good, but, like most of this post, that's a digression.
Werl, when i do makes these stuffs, i'll either post an instructable (prob. not for the forge. there;s enough forge instructables) but almost certainly for the rest of the stuff
