Welcome Home...THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF OUR COMMUNITY

As a maker I am always interested in finding a better way to do something that will make it a little easier to make the components that go into a knife: Blade, guard, ferrule, pommel, handle, fit and finish, hand sanding, grinding, file work etc. I have made several tools in order to make the process a little easier. Since  this is a maker group, I'm sure there are many who have methods and tips that would be benificial to all. Please feel free to share them with the group. I will try to post some tips in the days ahead. J. R.

Something I picked up recently that has been a tremendous help for me in finishing my projects is a set of 1" sanding discs for my dremel.  I start around 400 grit and will double the grit up to 1200 - 2000 grit depending on the material I'm working with.  This has helped me most with my finish on the transition from handle to bolster on my slipjoints.  I also use them to bring a better shine to the inside brass liners and the internal side of the back spring.
