    Good day all.
    I am a retired Fleet Service Manager and heavy duty mechanic..
    I have only been playing with making knives for a year or so.
    I do not have the facilities where I live but a buddy does forging at his home.
    So we do it together.
    I donated a treadmill, some steel and a whole lot of Allen head bolts and we made a great belt grinder.
    I buy the some of steel, he makes the Micarta handle material and he bought the belts.
    He also has access to a bunch of new 1 ton coil springs removed from new trucks that make a nice blade.
    As an old fart of 68 I find this a good way to get out of the house and keep active.

    Welcome to the forum. I have about the same amount of time in making knives. Lots of helpful advice here.
