  • Axes and knives...

    I wanted to post this on Paul’s thread about collectibles but it may warrant its own post.
    Anyone collect axes or knives? I recently bought a 1930’s double bit Red Rover ax that is the best in my collection. It’s heavier than I like to use but it’s Great Wall art.

        If you are into axes I find 1700-1800's heads all the time. I can send you a pic the next one I find. If you want it just pay for shipping. I leave them up against trees or on fence posts. Too heavy to carry around when I metal detect.

          The quality of the scabbard looks awesome, so the blade must be also very well done ! Nice piece Mitch.

        What’s the history on that machete Mitch?

              I have 3 Bayonets in my "Craftsman tool box", my Pa gave me, but I think there all American made. Pics later if I remember, having a bit of trouble with that these days, because its just plain easier to forget.

            Not sure one era or maker now, but they have been in my Dad's tool box since it was new or close to it.

              I think I figured out right now, why they have the little ball at the bottom of the scabbard and it's not for decoration.

              I Couldn't Find the Off Topic Section
              by Tom Wesenberg
              Things changed, and I couldn't find the OFF TOPIC section until Mitch told me the FORUMS now has a drop down menu, and it's listed there.
              I posted this here, just in case someone else gets lost.

              Gotta buff some stainless? Here is how we do it.
              by tbirdtbird
              Depending on how corroded/scratched it is, we will start with 1000 or 1200. If none of these things apply, we will start with 1500, go to 2000, then 2500. You can end with 3000 if you like but you will end up about the same as what the mini-buffer is gonna do. Also, 3000 is quite pricey.

              We wet sand of course using a DA (very important). Be generous with the water. Be sure to change your...

              Past modern silicone head gasket thread
              by Mitch
              If you are looking for the 5 page or so HG thread, I took it down for now. As the thread evolved it lost it's intended purpose to provide the members here with proven information for and against using it. The thread basically turned into a word twisting jungle of garbage, became impossible to follow, and then turned into a political mockery of which a post had to be deleted. For those that were following...
