    Joshua-I have learned the hard way that, when epoxy or CA is squeezed out from a clamping set-up, one can end up with things glued together that one didn't intend-hoping the wax paper will help!

    When clamping glued items to set, if you are using a vice or screw clamps it is a possibility to overtighten the clamps and starve the joint. So you need to make them tight enough for the air to come out and excess glue to squeeze out but not so tight you squeeze out too much glue and make a weak joint. It’s not as bit of a factor with wood because most times it will damage before it starves out the joint but it is easy to do with synthetic materials.

    Good point Rez.
    I hadn't thought of this.
    Plus with wood and depending on the glue, it penetrates the wood. Aint happening with other materials.

    "Starving the joint" sounds like something we did at parties back in the 80's, Shaun. But seriously, I get the concept. After some adhesion issues when I did my 1st couple of lined wedges, I have started seriously sanding and scoring my surfaces to be glued with a nail or needle file, which seems to help a lot. I just took these out of their wax-paper sandwich in the vise; yes, a lot of glue leaked out, but they seem very secure so far-time to start making them into something resembling scales:

    If no glue leaked out I would say you didn’t use enough. Those look like they should make some spectacular scales.

    Here’s one you won’t get. It’s got a few bug bites and the etching is gone, but it’s still a darn fine shaver.

    Okay, they're close to done now, and the 2nd set came out great. Latest problem is that I brought the blade for them and 2 other near-done scale sets into the house awhile ago to do the whole hand-polishing/tv-watching routine, and now I can't find them anywhere. My wife is in Europe, but if she were here, she would say "They're up your ass" (where all missing things are located in our house). Typical day in SHD land.

    I’m working on this old wade and butcher. It has had a tough life by the looks of things and I’m now hand sanding at 600.

    I will not give this post a “like” because it is too similar to what I regularly experience myself. It will turn up of course, but this is very much a “guy” thing.

    We put things down while heading to do something else or get momentarily distracted and that part of the man-brain simply erase all memory of the action that just took place and renders that thing we are looking for temporarily invisible.

    When this happens to me, I often find what I misplaced in a location I had already searched, but apparently the object could not be processed by my visual cortex at the time.

    Welcome to the club.

    Yeah, I know they're in the house somewhere; problem is, I was doing half a dozen other things at the time all over the house-again, typical.

    That WB has potential that I know you will find, Shaun-what is that rough black surface it's sitting on?
