    Default Ready for he HT! New file work

    I'm working on this 7/8 razor and tried some new things on it... One is the jimping with a file 20 lines per inch... I wasn't too happy with the results I think that it might have something to do with the fact that the surface wasn't flat? I dunno I'll play more with it later lol... Next is the file work, I tried something new on this barbers notch....

    now to throw her in my heat treat and hope to do the finish grinding with that I hope that fixes the bumps that happened during rough grinding...

    anyway enjoy,
    Fonz

    Looks like your having fun :<0)
    What are you grinding with ?
    It looks like you could use more taper in the tang. Might be the pics.
    The jimps don't look bad from here. With practice you'll be able to do it on a rounded top tang.

    Yeah I'm having a bit of a blast... I'm grinding on my 2x72 grinder I made.... I agree I think the tang could of been tapered a bit more but I got some where I liked and was afraid to move on....

    Pulled the grind line (or whatever the term is) back a bit to try and cover those debts.... It didn't end up straight which is just from inexperience... So just still working out the kinks... I hope to have a personal custom razor of my own soon... Nothing is more satisfying then shaving with something you made on ur own... Fingers crossed!

    When I first started grinding I forced patience by using fine belts. The temptation to get it done quick will cost you every time. At least until you get some good habits built up. If you go to the edge of the wheel don't stop and back up, things like that. I also start out with a small wheel and once I get a nice centered hallow I slowly work up in diameter. Everybody has their own way of learning but I have helped my friends get the hang of it and I start them out the same way. It's all about practice :<0) Your doing good so far. I have mostly used mine for restoring and my first blade has been waiting on an oven for waaaay too long. It gets here tomorrow so the fun really begins for me now.

    Which one did you pop for ?

    Found your grinder. Mine is a real Frankenstein. My oven thread will pop up tomorrow IF the oven ever gets out of Tonopah AZ. It's been camped there since Fri. noon. Sometimes I hate tracking :<0)

    I actually haven't gone up in grits I've been using the 80 grit belt for the rough grinding... Do you go though the grit progression before HT? I was just going to go to 120 240 400 after HT... The Evenheat artisan is the one I got, tracking does suck sometimes I have called a few times like "why the hell is it stuck!" Hahaha

    But thanks, I'm really trying... I think I'm going to just get a hold of the basics then really try and do something uniuqe... We will see though, time will tell

    Well I forged my blade and then ground it out. It has a lot of detail to it. I did start with 120 and as I got closer to what I wanted I went finer. I have belts up to 1200 which IS too fine for before heat treat but I was looking to see what I could accomplish before I popped for the oven. I punched a hole it and annealed it so it is scaled and ready for more. But after HT it will be grind blade, clean,scale and hone.

    The point I was making about the fine belts is they gave me time to get the feel of using the grinder before I took off too much material. If I made a mistake it wasn't to hard to get out and less likely to make again.
