    Opened up my computer tower tonight and blew the dust out. It needed it but was much better than I imagined.

    With that for my excitement, Another sign of my boring life!

    If I did it, it would stop working!

    Going to my youngest daughter's college graduation tomorrow.

    Smile and spend money!

    And thanks all for the kind words on the knife hilts gents.
    First and therefore worst I ever made but learned a few things I will apply to future constructs if the chance presents itself. Bolster filing, and patience when I am getting close, sanding ideas, general design improvements for next time as well.
    Want to make a carving blade or two. I have 22Ē long skinner blades from work that Iím thinking of modifying into carving blades. They were trial samples I canít use on the equipment that are 59 Rockwell and beautiful carbon content.
