Diamond Knurl SpanSlides

Hi Everyone,

Well, the early spring heatwave has passed and we're back to chilly temps and biting cold wind today. It was a good day to spend some time in the shop and get some stuff done. I'm slowly but surely working my way through the S30v steel Wrunts and should have them ready for heat treat in another couple of days. Have not touched the 3V steel Roid G2 Keytons and I'm just not sure when I will get to them...I'm probably going to end up finishing 3V steel G5 Prybabies first. These are Roid G5s but not quite as thick as I first intended so maybe we'll call them Semi Roids. Still, at 3/16 thick, they are going to be quite robust.

For ti projects I will have more ti Keytons coming up and will be doing a variety of finishes on them. And there's always the possibility of a ti mystery tool. ;)

Anyway, today I managed to get more of the ti SpanSlides done. These are diamond knurled and I have left them plain with no anodizing. They are mostly on Teal cord but I have some Tan cord too. They are $35 plus shipping.

Plain diamond ones are all gone, thank you folks!

Was hoping for a tool but still nice to see some ART. Nice job Peter.

Looks great Peter. Wish I had a Strider so I could pick one up.

My first purchase. Hope to score a tool next time. The upcoming projects sound great. Thanks Peter.

I have one of the green rifle knurl beads like this on the way that I will trade for one of these plain ones with the diamond knurling (straight across trade).

Let me know...

Just received mine... SWEET! Nice work (as always), Peter. (and for HighSpeedTROUBLE.. I'm willing to swap if you'll pay shipping ($16.95 per USPS) to the UK...)
Keep the great work coming, Peter!!!

HighSpeedTROUBLE said...

Thanks for the offer -- $16.95 is very, very high for shipping...guess I'll try to keep this swap in the USA, if possible. I do appreciate the offer though...

saltydog said...

for HighSpeedTROUBLE... Yes, $16.95 seems ridiculous... your profile says you're in Darbyshire, United Kingdom... if you're in the US, it's only a tad over $5

James said...

Any Damascus tool coming?

HighSpeedTROUBLE said...

Oh...yeah, you should never really pay attention to anything you see like that in someone's profile. :-) But yes, I am in the USA.

I'll try to figure out a way to get my contact information to you without broadcasting it to the world on here.

Just don't call them "HEMI - Roids" Lol
