    Haven't been able to made anything for month, school work is really taking over now.
    Although, i managed to squeeze an hour or two today and made this ... ready to shoot with 3/4" strip TBG with 3/8" steel ... just need to hunt down some feral tin cans.

    I grinded the frame using a 60grit ceramic belt on a beltgrinder that is running horizontally, it does the job nice and quick. I also mirror polished the rock *peaks* which gives it an interesting two-tone surface finish.
    All surface has been de-burred and rounded off using a Scotchbrite deburring wheel and a fine satin finish wheel, so no sharp corners!

    I really want to try some different patterns and techniques using a mill and various bits, might have to look around ...

    Yes it is, but I meant that I never heard of such a thing as a beautiful Sweden ;)

    Only a joke :)

    Onnod: Where in Sweden are you going to?
