    LOL... Actually, the folks at the scraping bench back in the old days were mostly responsible for the "not so straight" bindings and color border lines.

    Ladies at Memphis got it down pat! :D

    This guy cracks me up when he says he couldn't do it because he hasn't steady hands. Damn straight! Hold the video camera still!

    Good to see their techniques.

    Thats how I'd imagine a head cam video is on a Navy SEAL Op. :D Thanks for the video link - hadn't seem that.


    Excellent stuff Ken. How does the metal plate for the sides work, I've seen light bulbs being used. But I only saw a lead connected at one end.

    I remember being terrified the first time I did it free hand.
    The trick is to NOT think too much and do it quickly.

    I got a little bit of info from Bharat a while back...
    Who can guess what the original scraper knifes were made of?
    (Think cheap)

    Not sure what metal plate you are referring to. The lead(s) are from my silicone heating blanket. It has wires running through two layers of thin silicone rubber for a total of 1000 watts. When I plug it in it gets real hot real fast. I don't control the temp, just full power for a short time.

    Can't hold its sharpness...

    Too small

    ... and teeth.

    Although being used today in one of the Gibson plants... No.



    Clue: It's made of Hardened steel that would have been thrown away otherwise (-;

    I'm with Bad Juju, except for I think bandsaw blades, rather than table saw blades: Easy to cut to length and put in a hardwood clamp handle.
