    Made some parting tools

    Made some parting tools. I used big hack saw blades. I get 2 blanks per blade. Handles are attached with Gorilla glue. Lacquer finish. The surface of the blade is a little rough but it doesn't affect the parting action.

    Terry,

    These are great looking, sturdy, thin (all good traits) parting tools.

    They sure look better than the one I made out of a regular hacksaw blade. I'll bet yours are a lot sturdier and safer than mine.

    Enjoy,
    JimB
    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.

    Nice tools! What are the rough dimensions on these ones?
