Re: thumpificator v2.3

tried it both ways. seemed to work better with the pill gettin chilled first. there is a central fin of 3/16" plate running down the center of the pill, so the coldest water transfers the coolness well without being overcome by the vapor.

Re: thumpificator v2.3

....no, i added it shortly after the o.g. was made. the shredder couldn't keep up with full 5500W stripping, even with full blast cold water. the pill worked it all out, and now, i just use it fer everything.

hah! naw man...it's not like that. the engine turning thing is sweet for sure, but i'll leave it to spook. i'm thinking something different...some sort of scrolly engraving kind of thing.

yes sir! looking great. i might have to find one piece to engine turn on mine. i am gonna go with a dark forced patina on it, so one shiny turned piece would be a nice contrast. prolly the phlegm killer.

You have some nice tools. mrs. condensificator says that all the time!! I'm a much more shadetree kinda blacksmith. I already decided this knife will be made with some damascus stock.

Nice!
