Hello All, I would like to start by thanking everyone for this incredible resource! I was given a rusty old knife that my brother found at a factory we were working at about 1.5 years ago. Construction has always been my meal ticket but at that point i had not even correctly sharpened a blade. I took it home and spent days cleaning it up by hand and i was hooked. Since then i have been consuming as much information and assembling the tools and equip for my little knife making/blacksmithing shed while putting a few blades together and hammering out some tongs along the way. I stumbled upon Mr. Dancoms website about a month in and that has been a huge inspiration and help. Thank you! At this point i have (just some of my most used to give a idea where i am at) a 2x48, home built Bg 2x72 with OBM wheels that litterly just needs 230v to my shed and is ready to spark. Oscillating spindle, dremel, homebuilt forge and a yardsale found forge, 4 anvils, probably every metal File sold at thrift stores and yard sales with 50k in the last year, many many hammers and can finally hammer out tongs that I'm proud of. I have so many questions and would gladly help anyone just starting with any bit of the tiny bit i have learned. Thanks again all!!
