Noob question: Can't you make a small/thin wooden "washer" type end piece that sits between the pommel and the handle? That way, you can shape it to go from round to oval, to finish the transition from round to oval on the handle and just glue and pin it in place to not move perpendicular with the handle?

I love having Will on here. Alec, you need to change the name of the channel to the Alec and Will Blacksmithing and Comedy Hour though :) Keep up the great work fellows!

Why do you guys use threaded pommels? Why not use a peened pommel to match with originals. They're more secure and you don't have to worry about indexing :/

spawn5569 correction: Subjectively look much better but are significantly less complicated in design, detail, and fit & finish. Alec was offered a spot in the Forged in Fire contest years ago, and could probably do it anytime he wants, but he has turned down the offer because he wanted to get better back then, and since has said he wants to focus on this channel.

Not a criticism, just a critique - Will is fantastic, love his dynamic with Alec - but in Will's "monologues" he constantly blocks his face from view with his hands and with whatever he's holding (sword, billet, handle, etc). It takes away from what he's saying and can get quite distracting. Would love to see that worked out of the monologues, otherwise keep up the AMAZING work!! Best maker channel on the YouTubes!

I wholeheartedly agree with what Garry Waters wrote below, make it out of two pieces. Having a spacer that is oval on one end and round on the other will give you the ability to adjust the pommel when the wood dries out or if the alignment needs to be adjusted.

You put paste wax blade on the grip shaft and slid the wood handle onto the paste wax-covered handle, might not bond to the wood as it could be contaminated. Also, hope you put some paste wax cover the pommel threads or they will be bonded? If they are, Try putting it in the freezer, The temp difference will "possibly" break "possibly" the epoxy bond. BTW, Try BROWNELLS - acraglass gel release agent. It ill not affect the wood and is micro-thin when dried.

Nothing I love more then a 10:23 video about how to START modelling a handle and thread the pommel
AlexGoodHindConditioning - 10 måneder siden
I agree gets a bit boring just notifications all the time "sword breaker part..." it's like dead content at this point and every part just seems dragged out to 10 minute this could have easily been cut to 5 minutes then the other 5 minutes more progress.

Asremzee Ab Razak - 10 måneder siden
Very Nice technique using paste wax, But do you think the transition from handle to pommel is too subtle which make it the weakest point of stress? Do you think it might looks better by inserting cap in between that in so that it gave a better transition and stronger too...

The outside diameter of the bolt in millimeters determines the thread size when your dealing with metric

So, here's the thing. Millions of us subbed to Alec's channel. This is not a slight against you, Will, you're a cool guy and you do good work, but for Alec to simply drop off like that, with no explanation, multiple episodes with not a word, that's a bit disrespectful. I'm not even saying we need intimate details of his goings on, just a heads up, "hey, going to be out for a couple of weeks dealing with life/wedding/vacation/jury duty and will is going to be running the shop" whatever would be appreciated.
