    Interesting :P Blade color ideas?
    Light or dark. the path doesn't matter. What matters is how you act once you have chosen a path

    Did you epoxy the wood to the aluminum oy is it held together by the aluminum spine?

    this took a careful bit of machining. the top piece of aluminum is friction fit with a wee bit of epoxy the rest is a tight slide fit with a epoxy. then back in the lathe to smooth out my chop saw cuts. then i had to take the piece to work and use the big lathe to bore it out .

    the spine was an after thought .. because its wood, and i want combat ready and its only 1"1/2 of material with a 1 inch bore for electronics and blade. but i now have 2"1/4 blade purchase. .. the aluminum pieces were partial friction fit with epoxy. we shall see how it works after i bash the crap out of it . lol
