Try a regular metal file. Sometimes molten items can absorb particulate or even gaseous substances that may alter the
working characteristics of the metal. In example Grade S steel. High carbon steel alloyed with silicates. Makes great car
springs or one hell of a knife. It work hardens very...
I also favor the Myers Rum therapy. My wife and I got ours at the same time. The first one hurt and I got a bad bruise. She did pretty well with the first one but I got real lethargic
and slept a lot. The bruise tells me she hit a blood vessel with the needle so that may have caused it. The...
Having not said cutting torch I'd offer this perspective. Aluminum is a terrific conductor of heat or cold. It basically resists being flame cut by wicking the heat away to the other parts
of the piece. This causes the piece to melt all at once when heated, but that takes a lot of heat.
I agree, most are javelin, speer or knife points. If you've ever hunted with a bow a decision you'll have to make is accuracy or wound channel diameter. Wider heavier points tend to
steer the arrow but make impressive wounds for a faster bleed out. Smaller diameter multi pointed broadheads fly...
In Buncombe county East End of Asheville City Limits. Alluvial deposits along the Swananoa River. Be sure to know the boundaries of the National Park. The main vein is across the river
on the Billy Graham rehab center. Unfortunately, even if you could get a permit, there's un-exploded dynamite...
Sweet Joe, real sweet and congrats! I don't know about yellow jackets guiding you to destiny
but they'll danged sure usher you to glory. I don't know if you're aware of this but baking soda
can save your life in a situation like that. Keep a box and a bottle of water in your truck or in your...
Thanks so much for looking guys, and for all your kind comments! I looked the Vet up today and found out he's
buried in our local Vets Cemetery along with George Patton's grandfather and a number of notable soldiers
from all wars including some Confederates. He had a son born the same year as I...
Howdy all, I've been looking through my many collections lately and happened on this in my Seiko
stash! It's pretty self explanatory so I'll only say he was a 43rd engineers attached to 8th Army in
the Pacific. They made over 60 landings and oversaw Japan during the postwar period...
Well, you know in that time it could have been a button for their smock or even a set of cufflinks? Perhaps
an achievement award? Or a set of promotional cufflinks for salesmen for Ford's Mercury division?
Welcome NWPWS! This is what's known as an cameo ring. They were wildly popular
after WWII. They pictured victorious warriors of old, Spartans, Romans, Knights in
armor etc. Some were really beautiful! Congrats. Some of them were carved into
a piece of mineral and they're called intaglio images.
