Re: Ranger camp knife

Hmmm... I like the idea of a hollow handled knife that could work as a spear when added to a walking staff, so clever :P

Is the handle of the knife hardened, if not you could drill two small holes at each end, then rap a strip of leather round and pin it on

Re: Iron shod walking staff/spear haft

The lathe is a Grizzly 9x20 The mill is a Grizzly o forget the model number but it's a rebranded Sieg x3 mill which is a mid sized mill... The jig is a hexagonal 5c collet holder and I used a 1inch collet and turned a piece of pipe to fit. Then machined some trued up threads to hold the cap square....

Re: Iron shod walking staff/spear haft

That's cool, maybe I'll make one :P have you thought of blackening it with something like black magic?

Nice milling jig by the way, I take it you screwed the pipe fitting on real tight and turned the hex over for each cut. Curiosity: What's the mill? It doesn't look quite like a bridgeport table

Re: A Week in Scotland

Some of you might have noticed I wasn't on-line last week. It was, once again, the annual family holiday in Scotland. Even though I didn't get a lot of time for rangering, the wild landscape make for a great photo opportunity This year was really quite different, last year I had mountain blizzards a...

Re: 2019 S.W.O.R.D. Game

For mounted archery, historically and often today, one also does not look at the bow nor use a nocking point. Honestly when I switched over to many of those techniques (I use a mish-mash depending on the day) I was shocked at how little difference where I nocked on the string made - usually none, h...
