That's gorgeous! What is the blade material? Just curious, how much does a knife like that sell for?
The blade is Damascus steel or folded steel, it two different types of carbon steels forged welded together. This knife sold for 180.
Hand made knives range from 100 to 500 just depends on Materials used.
That knife is a beauty Dustin. What wood is the handle made from?
Thank you, it's splattered maple.
I plan on keeping pretty close to original, I'm painting the tank and such, a dark metallic green. If I could get it to start
Heres the sidecar I made for my Spree. I dont know if anyone is going to be brave enough to ride in it but Its fun to look at lol
I hope to have this lake ready this summer. Bass boats are very common in these parts. I have had several over the years but not in the last 5 years. Ibought this 16' 1984 skeeter recently. I need to rebuild the lower unit, replace a lot of wiring, install a new tach, sonar, seats, livewell pumps, bilge pump and a few other things. It has a '91 suzuki 55 Hp. It runs great but the prop shaft is bent, that's why it needs a rebuild.
My neighbor has a '25 Sea Ray with a 454 and Mercruiser outdrive. Thank you, Jeeps cost less. I've worked on the outdrives on both of his boats. I'm happy sitting on the beach with a cocktail.
Again, my brother has had the family boat for about 16 years, other than last summer when it tried to sink he has had no problems.
2 teenage girls, you figure it out.
Heres my brothers new toy 86 z28 iroc 305 5 speed for 1k. It needs an engine and trans rebuild but tons of new parts on it. Just needs some tinkering otherwize. We went to the junk yard yesterdsy to look for parts. Of course the one time in history that there were no camaros in the yard grrrr..
dont laugh its a hundred years old...gonna teach myself to upholster seats...
I'm not going to laugh, both of my grandmothers had treadle sewing machines. I transplanted my mothers Singer into an antique cabinet. I have an older Pfaff 130 and the neighbor lady still uses her treadle Singer for small jobs. A friend has an industrial machine and he sews leather for the Harley folks and is in to the reinactment scene so he sews up clothing as well.
Ive got a 1945 singer 99 as well gonna treadle that one too. Both were very cheap and needed some work. The 1915 new home will sew 8 layers of top material.
Definitely a learning process.
Yep I use my grandmothers 1950 singer she got for her high school graduation present. It sews the thick stuff great. I usto use my mothers machine that she got for her graduation present but it cant handle as much
building another extension on my shed. i dont really need so much space at the moment but iv got the wood and itll be full soon enough
Yeah, stuff seems to expand to fill the empty spaces.
george carlin had a great bit about stuff https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLoge6QzcGY
"it'll be full [of jeep parts] soon enough"
I used to have a garage I could actually park in. I keep getting rid of "stuff" but still can hardly walk around in it. Those transfer case levers can be a bit tough on the 'ol shin bones and why do I have 4 tablesaws, all of those old Volvo B18 parts, the spare 225, etc.? A stack of wood on one side and a stuffed tool box and bench on the other side. (Only about 1/2 of my mechanical tools, the other half is in a bin in the back of the Jeep).
Then there is the shed and enclosed trailer...
