I’ve been making knives now for a couple months and have friends asking me to make them kitchen knives. However, the only steals that I have in my shop now or 1095, 80CRV2, Spring Steel, and railroad spikes. I’m assuming railroad spikes are not food safe however or any of these safe to make a kitchen knife that will be used and won’t cause harm? Does anybody have recommendations for types of steel I can use to make kitchen knives. submitted by /u/Dull-Satisfaction863 [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

I have a long table saw that weighs about 1100 lbs. I’d like to build a rolling mobile base for it that will stay ridgid as I roll it over my uneven garage floor. I have it designed with 1.5” x 3” x 0.120” steel tube along its length of 65” supported on each end with casters. I’ve run it through multiple online calculators for deflection, and get wildly different results from each one. One calculator says it will deflect almost 2”, another calculator says it will deflect .03”. Please forgive me for my ignorance here… but how strong would you say this tubing is? Strong enough? Here is a p ..read more

Cutting a barbell

I have a weight lifting pulley tower with two 1" thick bars that hold the plates. I'm assuming they're hardened steel? I'd like to cut them down a couple of inches to fit in a tighter space. I don't have the tools or skill to cut it myself. What's the best way to find someone who can cut it for me, and what should I offer in compensation for the work? I'm in Brooklyn if that matters. To be clear the shuttle that the bars are attached to is relatively small so I can bring it anywhere. submitted by /u/HuffDuffDog [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

Id like to brighten up and shine my cabinet hardware in my kitchen. Its vintage copper or brass. I soaked one in vinegar over night and am unhappy with how pale it turned out. I assumed the handle would turn out more golden brass color like the hinge buts its almost got a pink hue to it and its not looking good with the cabinets now. Anyone have any advice on how to get it to shine more golden brass color? https://imgur.com/a/o3X66Io submitted by /u/Bunziix [visit reddit] [comments ..read more
