Added a Knifemaker's Vise How To





How about a handy knifemaker's vise that takes up to 2-1/4" tall blades? I made this from scrap and a few nuts and bolts. It can be clamped in a regular mechanic's vise or mounted to the face of a workbench. Welding the base to the bottom of the section and you can mount it to the top of your workbench. Super handy for working on handles.

Micro Chef Novelty Knife

I had some time to kill when the paint was drying on my laser enclosure and made this knife.


It's a  KN58 Micro Chef's knife. It's about 2.75" (7 cm) OAL and is made from AEB-L with stabilized crosscut bocote and copper pins. 1/5th scale.










































Fun build!
