Give'n it to it on a 14" wheel
Here the blades are ready to go to the 400 grit belt and then hand rub out. Did not get as far as I had hoped today, but it was a GOOD day.
This was a tough shot! Did not quite get them held on a 90 degree angle, but close. The plunges are very close right now and will get the final tune on the 400 grit belt.
Lets see what the micrometer says about these blades! I have been trying to get them as close as posable.…
Copper wrapped 5160 blade first.…
Still the copper wrapped tang 5160 blade. If you have any questions take a look at the edge of the blank. On the 5160 blade you can see the slight decarb from the HT process. This is not present on the S30V blade that was heat treated in a controlled atmosphere kiln by Paul Bos.
The first thing I did was decide that I wanted the grind lines a little higher and more refined, so I went back to the 240 grit belts.
(le flingue est là au cas où la machine s'emballe)
Finally making some progress! Got the grinds up where I want them.….
Working on the 400 grit belts! After seeing the picture my dad reminded me that I had a problem learning how to ride a bike as I never would watch where I was going...
I told him I had to grind by feel.…..
Unless working on perfecting my new two handed grinding style.….
Concentration this takes.…. (in my best Yoda voice)
This was a daring move! Two handed and not watching..
On to the 15 micron belt. Next step is to get the ground bevels hand rubbed out.
