    Recycling a diamond saw blade into a draw knife.

    A neat video showcasing some garage metal working skills and some lathe work.

    I sometimes need a small piece of high quality steel and this video has found a free source for me as I have a couple of friends who own masonry businesses. I'm going to hit them up for some used blades.

    Excellent idea!

    A couple of years back I made some marking knives from old jigsaw blades for our shop made tool swap, I need to try doing one of the draw knives now.

    Neat. He is clever. That blade steel is pretty brittle but he did anneal, should be OK.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Cool project, although I did wince a bit watching him use bench chisels as scrapers on the lathe. I prefer to have longer handles on my turning tools. I like the way he did the copper wire ferrules, though.
