Soon this will be another major heading. This will be a place for us to post any shop tips we come across that make our job a little easier, better or more cost effective.

That's a cool jig! I've been wondering how you did some of the middle spacers and that sort of thing

I use acra glass for most of my handles. when I'm stacking leather spacers I will use either devcon 5 minute epoxy or preferably I use acra 20 when I have it on hand. using the faster curing epoxy allows me to stack the handles quicker. when clamping up multiple leather washers on a curved spacer I can only layer up two at a time so that I can get a good solid clamp up on the curved surfaces. when I'm stacking up flat washer's I will use acra glass and clamp the whole handle up at one time.

this is a basic trick I saw in a picture but it works well....I have had trouble standing my knives edge up in the oven for tempering so making so little foil "stands" works great( allows all part of the knife to get equal exposer to a temperature):

I made Marks "scale removal brushes" and here they are:
showing how it could mount:

just a few pieces of angle iron and some ugly welding:  

I'm not sure if this is how he did it but they were his idea(at least where I got it from)

It looks like it would work, at least beat hunting for your wire brush that is somewhere in the shop.

Why Safety Glasses?

This is a photo of Eldon Perkens after an explosion of gas in wood burning oven.





It is very easy to see that Eldon would have been blinded had he not been wearing glasses.
