    As it was said--This was to be a 'Display Piece'. But I do wonder what would happen with some Pro Welding and some heat treating.

    What is the deal with a 4" angle grinder? I agree it is a useful tool but if I watch almost any DIY video it seems that a 4" grinder and a hot glue gun is all you need to make anything.

    About the 4" Angle Grinder--Maybe it's because the discs are only about 1/16" thick so the don't waste a lot of material?

    Here is my humble collection.
    I recently got several double bits to play with. The painted ones need clean up and all are getting new handles eventually.

    Got distracted by some very nice knives and came across the well-respected Winkler brand. High end axes / tomahawks are another specialty of theirs as evidently variants of these are very popular with the military:

    It's a side axe or a hewing axe... For cutting flat sides . I've got a similar True Temper one.

    Had a 2 1/4lbs. W. Germany axe head I found cheap a while back. Also had the perfect size vintage hickory handle for it so I decided to try my hand at hanging. A lot of spoke shaving and I finally got a perfect fit. Also thinned the handle down quite a bit until it felt good. Really happy with the results. Going to try my hand at a leather mask as well.

    Sporting a stupid sharp edge as well. ‘Twas a fun project. Good trade bait with my bushcraft buddies!
