I like the simplicty of your design. There's a commercial kit available here in Australia, but it uses two wheels and a gas strut for tension. Your design looks more simple to maintain, and change belts. For those looking to build a variable speed one, find a second hand 3 phase motor, and get a cheap VFD from ebay. Any motor from 1.5hp to 3 hp will work.

I was pretty sure someone had used yucca for making string. Was putting dead leaves in the green bin and felt how strong and fibrous they were.

I am indeed, and that was how I got into leatherwork. Firstly sheaths, then belts, aprons, and beyond. I've done a little woodturning too.
Thank you, this is the second variation, i'm onto the third model now, with a little more refinement.Time is always the big factor in doing things like this, and things always get changed to make it easier/take less time.I do indeed sell them, custom sized and pocket layout. Mostly to the knifemaking community here in Australia.
Looks great. I make similar ones (though usually only one colour). Try adding a strap from the neck strap to the waist strap. It will put the weight of the apron on your shoulders instead of your neck. I call this the Y configuration. X is another strap style that allows you to put the apron on more like a t-shirt.

as long as you take the seeds out, and use it in a reasonable volume of food, it isn't too spicy, and actually has flavour itself.
I usually use a tin of peeled whole tomatoes and a bottle of puree, but this is pretty much how I make mine. If you double the mixture, try adding a single, chopped and seeded, Carolina Reaper chiili for a good heat that doesn't linger to long.

Making a Mini Knife
This one is made from 2-3mm nubuck leather in chocolate colour. Veg tan reinforcements. 25mm (1") straps.
Love it! This is one of the things I make for the knifemaking/blacksmithing community here in Australia. The thing that always annoyed me in my original designs were the strap ends, and attachments. I now use a thin strip across the top part as a doubler, that is punched to fit the strap through, which is then riveted to itself. The lower straps are looped through shield shaped reinforcements sewn in. I found a good tutorial on making English point strap ends that doesn't require a different punch for each belt width on the Gold Bark Leather page.

Nice work indeed. I've had a grind of some Ti pieces, but not actually made anything. You can also use voltage to anodise Ti, almost like a paint brush of colour. Dana.engraving on instagram has some good examples of electrical anodsing of Ti
Knife Making 101 (reductive Process)
Please, use vegetable oil instead of motor oil, works exactly the same, but with less toxicity being emitted. Apart from that, a great instructable with good attention to detail.
This assumes that your quench medium is exactly the same temperature all the way through, if you swished to a 'cold spot' the blade is likely to warp.
Carving a Giant Utility Knife (entirely Out of Wood)
The tracking always requires adjustment. Between different brands of belt, age, they tend to stretch in different ways.
Very nicely constructed. I've seen a few done like this one. I have the steel to make one, but in a welded version for simplicity, just because I have access to one.
Very nicely constructed and photographed Instructable. This sheath shape is indeed the most simple and works with almost all straight spined knives. Some of the more curvy ones need more of a 2 piece sheath, but if you can master the 1 piece, a 2 piece is no problem. The only thing I would mention is left and right hand versions being marked on opposite sides of the leather.

It's fine to use to clean your bike chain of dirt and old lubricants. Let dry and use preferred lubricant to re-lubricate the chain.
What a great and simple solution to one of the biggest problems for anyone doing product photography or video at home.
