Always keep your tools as snubbed (stubby) as possible. Machining is all about rigidity. You will have less chatter, better tool life, and you can take heavier cuts. Have fun and keep your fingers!

Your bender has the same issue as mine. The follow bar nosedives. Pro-Tools assures me that the follow bar is supposed to remain in a flat plane. I can't get it to work correctly. Waste of $700 in dies.

Do you have any videos on your sharpening process?  I have strayed away from making knives simply because I feel like I will put in a ton of time only to bone it trying to sharpen it.  I have seen a video for a bastard file jig, but would love to know some other techniques. Trying to find the balance between "quick and dirty" and "master bladesmith". I don't want to be a master bladesmith, but don't want to be a hack either. Great video. Thanks!

The plate with the holes is what you want. You want a good concentrated nucleus of heat. If you want to widen the nucleus, drill a wider "bolt circle" and/or more holes.Your idea to lift the the plate up so air can escape around the sides isn't a bad idea, but you still need to drill holes in that plate as well. There is no point is having a hot circle of coal around a cold nucleus. Know what I mean?

Jesus Christ! Give it more skinny pedal why don't you! Haha! So unnecessary, but sounds so good.

That's a beaver tail, not a dovetail. Right?
