Is the guard ring on the correct side since it’s a secondary weapon?

They make a drimmel tip that’s made for sandpaper and you tighten down a screw to hold the sandpaper to it

Awesome vid as always! Regarding the wire you could've used Ni80 wire that is ment for vaping. Really easy to work with and you can get it to almost any color you'd like if heated slowly. Would be awesome to get a twisted wire along the groves that was dark violet, blue, silver and gold!

And another question, why don’t you guys use a sandblaster to equally smooth out complex shapes with lot of edges and radius parts like on the handle guard ?

I know there's a difference between acceptable back then historically and sellable today but, most of the pieces you recreate are so perfect and precise they seem sterile to me, and less human made. If you presented your work to people back then you would probably be considered a witch and treated as such. In the future, I hope to see works crafted by hand with more raw outcomes. There's nothing wrong with a little casting imperfections here or there, misalignments, and spine to cutting edge measurement differences. Being able to see these imperfections inspires ones imagination, and wills them on a journey of how it was made drawing them into the piece more resulting in more attachment and wonder.

if you wanted a wire that would oxidize or blacken you should have used "lockwire" or kanthal (used for vapes) both are similar chemistry and will blacken with heat.

Was fishing for Striped Bass this morning on the east coast and my brother brought along Steele leaders in case we run into some Blue Fish, and it got me thinking it is already a twisted wire comes in black and is fairly inexpensive, if you can find it in Montana at your local sporting goods store or fishing supply depot you might be able to use that

For small parts like that, when you only have a 4 mill thread for support, you're better off using HHS cutters, the carbide is designed for a heavy chip load, and doesn't cut so effectively without it, it doesn't have the same sharp cutting edge as HHS.

In the future when you twist wire, it usually breaks less when you twist it slower, it takes more time however in my experience it breaks less, try giving that a shot next time rather than blasting it out in a minute. it may also help with twisting more evenly in the future.

Will Warren - 10 måneder siden
Man, hawking kove speakers? They're just a prop company that bought a bunch of wholesale mediocre quality speakers and slapped a made up brand on them. I know all brands are technically made up, what I mean is that there is no company, no culture, no design process. This could easily be two people in their uncle's basement. That 65% off discount is also bogus. It's always available because it makes consumers think they're getting a deal on a great product. You can find the same exact speaker (I mean same exact, not comparable) on amazon for as low as $45 USD. I enjoy your content, Alec, but this feels like it was just about getting paid not taking care of your fans or wanting us to have a cool product.

That top left corner forces the whole thing down and centered, so if you have to take any off, opposite side of what you think you may need. Seems to work well for me.

Alec and Will, I don't know how hot you heated that galvanized wire, but you should Google "Metal Fume Fever", as zinc oxide (ZnO) fumes can be toxic.

New suggestion! Make four more spools, drill a hole in them all, put upsweeping pegs on one of your tool carts and mount the spools on the cart for storage. You never know when you'll need one and you won't have to unspool and respool your stuff.

Fencingrat - 10 måneder siden
Hate to mention this, Alec and Will, but the concave transition from the guard "block" to the quillions is looking too thin for practical use - - remember that it's not only the cut outs / blade catcher spaces along the blade that are meant to hold an opposing sword, but the quillions also, and that's done by engaging the incoming blade (flat-to-flat, not edge-to-edge) with the main gauche blade and twisting the main gauche over so that the quillions "grab" also to be able to control the threatening sword. I think your guard would bend if impacted directly by a sword blow, or bend/break under twisting when the main gauche is properly used. Will - you may have filled down too far!

so i checked the price of this thing, and i almost pooped myself. its like 200 bucks!
but after the discount, its 70, which is cheaper than a jbl flip, which in my mind is the guy to beat (music pun) in the portable speaker industry.

OK this has been an on-going trend for a few videos now. There are WAY too many camera shot changes in too short a period of time. there are 35 camera changes in less than 28 seconds. I love the content, but this takes away from the immersive experience... Each camera angle change should have an actual purpose, not just beat-matching music - it's disorienting
