On second thought.  Just buy the Tampan belt sander and go and visit Groenie for the head. Im after the milk, not the cow.

Not too fond of the burning (yet?). Will for now just do paracord wrapping

Have a few colours...  like working with rope.

Hein -  I tried the paint stripper method to remove the DLC coating of one of my stock tomahawks yesterday. I don't like it and I think it creates more of a mess than anything else.The grinder method works much easier and quicker. I cleaned it up and gave it an over-hit leather jacket with a leather wrap.This is the spike hawk and you will struggle to get a better close combat & self defense weapon. This one is a give away to any of the members who wants it. Keep in mind that you would have to pay for the courier costs to your address..Who wants it?

Visarend and Kilroy excluded of course

Sal hy vir my nuwe kop ook werk?

Sit jy n rubbing compound op - of gaan jy bloots in?

Ek hardloop bloots net om die gemors af te kry.  As jy wil blinker maak dan rubbing compound / wax.

Decisions

Bench grinder - for rough grinding, cleaning, stripping polishing.  Which one?

https://www.adendorff.co.za/?post_type=product&s=Bench+grinder

Then after payday - Tampan’ band grinder?

Thoughts?

I would not go with a bench grinder. Normal small hand grinder is more versatile imo. I know VA will disagree

No, agree with hand grinder and flap disk, the bench grinder is for the lazy people.   :biggrin:

When your supplier phones you and says he has work for you.   :eek7:  :eek7:  :eek7:

10 old axes
One forge tong
A piece of railway track

Should keep me busy for a while.   :biggrin:

Daardie klein hand-byltjie onder regs is nou maar net die oulikste ding met 'n lem!
Net die ding vir 'n hout-werkswinkel.

Is die vervaardiger se stempel daarop?

Ek dink daar is 3 of 4 van hulle.  Ek laaik ook daai kleintjies.  Weet nie of die stempels nog op is nie, gewoontlik is als toe van die roes en kom eers helder uit soos ek skoonmaak.  Dis gewoontlik waar ek dan sentimenteel raak oor hulle.   :eek7: :biggrin:

Many thanks for your generosity, Hardy.

After chatting to you, I now know what an over-hit is. I've damaged a few axe shafts with miss hits particularly when the arms tire.

Bra Groen se ons moet die kop sandblast.  Hy sal dit vir sy pel vat. Toe bring hy bier uit en ons raak aan die kak praat.  So behalwe vir 3 messe se lanyards wat ek gevleg wonder ek waar die dag heen is want die bylkop is nogsteeds by my. Het darem skuurpapier, boiled linseed en flap disc gekoop.
