Re: While waiting on Mules...

What epoxy are you using? I've mostly been using Amazing Clear Cast Resin made by Alumilite. It has a long working time and doesn't have harsh fumes. It takes 24-48 hours to fully cure so don't use it if you're in a hurry. Here's a link: https://www.hobbylobby.com/Crafts-Hobbies/Clay-Molding-Sculpt...

Re: While waiting on Mules...

Have you considered taking the cracked chunks and compressing them into resin? I haven't tried it (I don't have a pressure pot--yet) but I've seen some pretty cool resins with things embedded in them. I've been saving all my scraps just in case some day I want to try to mix them up and make somethi...

Re: While waiting on Mules...

I am very curious to hear about how that redwood turns out. I have a chunk of western redwood cedar that I cut from a very old windfall. I started working with one piece and it formed several cracks. It was a shame because the piece was very pretty but just had too many cracks. This was before I bou...

Re: While waiting on Mules...

Do you happen to have a list of woods that you know stabilize (or don't stabilize) well? And/or take dye well during stabilization? I'm into a lot of trial and error with a scale, a saw, and a lot of old forum posts trying to figure out things like 'will olive wood take dye during stabilizing?' or ...

Re: Hiking Shoes

I don't have a specific recomendation but I have been very happy with boots from Danner, Salomon and La Sportiva. I haven't worn this model but it seems to tick a lot of your boxes.

Re: While waiting on Mules...

There is so much good information in this thread. Thanks for sharing, Chad! I have used CA a few times and like you stated it is most appropriate when you need to fill some small voids. The big downside is the fumes but using an activator helps a lot. I usually apply several layers and sand back to ...

Re: New handle for a cheap knife...

Great work! I bet your friend is stoked about his knife. Thanks, that's a big compliment coming from you. BTW do you have a youtube channel or a link to any handle making videos that you've posted? I delivered the knife on Sunday and my friend was very happy with the work that I did. We agreed that...

New handle for a cheap knife...

I was visiting with a friend recently when he handed me two inexpensive Schrade Bowie knives. He said, "here, why don't you put some new handles on these and you can keep one of them." I've only made one other knife handle but I love to dabble so I told him that I would give it a try. He also handed...

Re: Which folder?

Amalgam or Gayle Bradley 1

Both have a good size blade and decent thickness without a fragile tip. M4 and s30v are both good steels. I prefer compression locks but the GB1 has a very stout liner lock. :spyder:
