As Mackelbot mentioned, this is not to be used for a blade.
The mokume gane is not intended to be used for a knife blade. I use this for decoration on the handle, usually at guard or bolsters. A steel knife blade needs to be high carbon so it can harden properly.
I got my electrolyte solution from a knifemaker supply store.
Hi, nice Instructable. Thanks for posting.The readers may find an online calculator that I scripted with php helpful. It uses AC motor information, sheave diameters and drive wheel diameter to determine the speed of a grinding belt. http://dcknives.com/public/belt_speed.phpDC
That looks great!
It should be noted that with a toggle switch, the internal contacts are opposite the lever. So when the lever is down the center and top contacts are closed. This isn't a problem as you can either label the switch based on the output (AC or DC) or you can simply rotate the switch in the hole 180° to match your labelling. Good luck!
Wow, I have never seen that before. I'd check the batteries in the meter.Dan
I have some details on my blog: http://dcknives.blogspot.com/p/2-x-72-belt-grinder...Including dimensions and building the tool arms. Dan
That looks like the right kind.
Yes the outer layers of the billet stick to the steel. It's a bit tough taking them off.
