Despite the massive spider hanging out in my shop, I dealt with the arachnophobia enough to make my first attempt at file work on the back of the handle. I like it! #filework #knifehandle #knifemaking #recycledart

A very simple and brief part of my current @wilton.tools ’66 C0 vise restoration...the “U shaped retaining plate thrust washer thing” haha! If someone has a good name for this thing then I am all ears. I always struggle to come up with a decent way to describe it. I like to use brass for this part. It has good lubricity against the hardened stainless “main slide handle carrier thing” that I made and will probably show in the next post. The only eligible piece of brass I could find in the shop was 1/4” plate, so had to face mill the thickness down to about .160”. I am dead set on leaving excellent surface finishes on all the parts I am making for this vise, so I was very careful to not ding it up or scratch it too bad. I am completely avoiding scotch brite on this project. After machining it to thickness I used my trusty magnum blue sharpies, a transfer punch, and a very pointy Starrett scriber to lay out the part. I also found a great use for my Armstrong mini bridge clamps to hold the old plate onto the brass to do all my transfer work. From there it was to the vertical bandsaw to rough out the shape, then to the Jet oscillating drum sander to rough out the inside, then to the @burrking 48” belt sander with a fresh 120 grit belt to get right up against my scribe lines. Once I was done with the power tools, it was straight to the bench vise with a few different hand files to finalize the shape, just making the scribe lines disappear. Very careful finish deburring done with an ultra slim 6” Swiss made #6 cut file. If you guys get a kick out of fine file work, you absolutely need to check out the @clickspring1 youtube channel. He does amazing brass work and he puts my dimensional filing efforts to shame! A true precision craftsman that I admire greatly 👍 #wiltonviserestoration #cavemanwelderviseresto #filework #itwasahandjob #finecraftsmanship #viserestoration #viseporn #viseaddict #visejunkie #soeasyacavemanweldercandoit

A look at some of the extensive file work I did on the main castings of my current vise restoration...a 66’ @wilton.tools C0. Old school pattern 3-1/2” Combination vise. This post just goes to show how well paint can hide nasty scars. The seller, who I also bought my 4” Machinist from, said that there was one hammer blow to the moving jaw casting (see 2nd slide). He was correct, but not only was there the one obvious deep ding, but also a hundred others haha! Pretty damn rough, but nothing some hand work, some machining, and patience can’t cure. As opposed to filing to dimension, this was mostly cosmetic/artistic file work. Filing to dimension is a different skillset than just blending stuff to make it look nice to the eye. Got some quality time with some of my rarely used files to do the very aggressive heavy roughing (Nicholson Super-Shears, Magicut, Milled Tooth) then went to a 12” Flat bastard for the semi-finish passes, then a 12” Pferd Hand smooth for a finish. A lot of conventional filing and draw filing to achieve the result I was after. Using my blue magnum sharpies on every pass to gauge my progress. There is a chunk missing and a couple clusters of casting porosity in the fixed jaw, which I can’t really do anything to fix, but other than that it came out pretty decent 👍 Stay tuned for more posts regarding the process of this restoration. #wiltonviserestoration #wiltonbullet #filework #toolrestoration #viserestoration #viseaddict #itwasahandjob #nicholsonfiles #pferdfiles #soeasyacavemanweldercandoit

Face time, this fine french antique razor is all one could wish for. Has a lovely sound when you ping it, compared to the cheap black one which doesn’t sound at all. C 135 steel makes all the difference. Stropping is easy and the shave is smooth without pulling... This 50 quid investment was worth every penny! Two things are missing from this new venture, stropping paste & jap oil for the job after...😏

@combatabrasives, I Love these belts. I haven't tried a lot of different brands, but when you find one that is awesome and are work horses.. why bother. When my order came in, I emailed them a question. Instead of returning my email. They took the time to call me. They also give us veterans a discount on all orders/products. Thanks guys! #handmade #knivesofig #knives #knifemaker #knife #knivesdaily #knifenut #handfile #hunting #etching #veteranowned #veteranmade #j #filework #sharp #madeinusa #roundedspine
