Adventures in Micro Manufacturing with Knife and Tool Maker Peter Atwood
That's never a good thing when your machines run off electricity! :(
Hang in there, Peter.
Well you have power... thats a start. Stay safe!
Yow! This calls for a hot shower and a hot meal--the true measure of a civilization.
Ugh. So sorry Peter.
Glad to hear the power is back and hope all is well for you guys out there!
I was wondering if you had been affected by that big storm. Hope everything is back to normal shortly Peter.
yea, lost poweer last night here in Valdez, AK. BIG winds going on...hope you have a good wood stove ;)
Glad you have power again! Hope everything survived OK!!! Gary :>)
Still waiting on our juice here in Plainville, CT. Bright side is the post office delivered the stonewashed Keyton yesterday!
Staying warm and dry is the most important thing Peter!Having power is a good start, hang in there!
Thank goodness to find out about the storm. I was completely unaware. You know how quick Peter is about responding to emails. After not hearing from him in 2 days, I thought I was on the "S" list.One smart comment too many.......
We finally got power back in the wee hours of this morning. What a nightmare.
I don't know HOW I could go without internet for a few hours, let alone DAYS. It must be horrible.
Look what I made...:Dhttp://www.m998.com/images/keytonsheath.jpg
@HighSpeedTROUBLE,Cool sheath, really nice job.
HighSpeedTROUBLE , whats the point? What's it for?
@knogis: Uhhh...it's so you can wear it on a cord around your neck and have quick, easy access to it without having to take it off your neck.Have you never seen kydex neck sheaths before or something?@sashner -- thank you! At least *someone* "gets it"...:-)
His keyton! :PIt looks great!
Sorry, didn't mean to offend anyone. Why not just keep it in your pocket? Keepin' it simple.
If you want to keep yours in your pocket and get it all banged up and scratched with the other crap you have in there with it, go ahead. But no need to slight others that find it quicker / handier / better to wear around their neck with a neck sheath.Just because you don't get it doesn't mean others don't.@Bobby - Thanks!
@HighSpeedTROUBLE, I want a sheath for my wild card so I can carry it outside of my wallet. Was it difficult/expensive to acquire all the necessary materials to make? I've watched Peter's video on the subject but I'm looking for more info on how to do at home.Thanks
@sashner -- Yes. It cost quite a little bit upfront in order to get the tools/materials to make them. I ended up getting a proper heat gun (Dewalt brand, after reading great reviews on it), several different size drill bits, several 1' x 1' sheets of Kydex (different colors), a grommet set (still need to get the right size), and a few TekLoks...It ended up costing several hundred bucks, but much of that was the heat gun. I think the materials were about $120 shipped.Or I could just make one for you for about $10 + shipping. :-) It's fun to do it yourself though, I reckon. Just don't get the kydex too hot or it'll give you a headache (literally)...or, it gives me one, anyway...
@HighSpeedTROUBLE, Thanks for all the info. If you are serious, I may just take you up on making a sheath for me. I assume you would need the Wildcard to form the sheath. Out of curiosity, what state do you live in?Thanks again,Stuart
I'm in Texas, but I have a Wildcard, so you wouldn't have to ship it here. :-)
@HighSpeedTROUBLE, I'm in. Please email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org to work out details.Thanks again!
