    I just found this forum the other day and thought I would say Hello. I am in Winnipeg and have been making knives on and off for a few years. Some blades I made and some I bought and just file worked and finished. I have been working on some equipment for the last year or so and have not made many knives. But I have built a KMG clone of sorts and so far it seems to be working fine. I have made it so I can turn it and use it horizontally as well. I still need to build or buy a small wheel attachment and some different rests . Also I have just finished a heat treat oven and I am trying to figure out the controller I bought for it. ( technology eludes me sometimes till I get a grasp on it ). If anyone is thinking of one of these projects I would be happy to offer any help I could but I am no expert that's for sure. Great to find some more local folks with the same interests as me.

    Welcome Grouch! Like Icho said post some pics of your equipment, it's always cool to see others set ups/shops. As for your controller for your heat treat oven, what type is it? I work at an arts centre with ceramic and glass blowing equipment and between all of the equipment, there are 5 different types of heating control units that I am familiar with, so I might be able to help if you'd like and if I can't for sure someone on here can, lots of knowledgeable people willing to help.

    Cheers
    Joel

    Thanks for the welcome. I will post a few picks of my recent equipment adventures and greatfully accept all suggestions or comments. As for the controller it is Ramp and Soak kit from a gentleman in Ontario at Thermomart. There are actually no names or part numbers of any kind on the controller or box it came in.
