Top Ten Beginner Knife Making Mistakes...and How to Avoid Them!

Did this video help you?

Stevespecs: Great presentation, but for me to complicated. I made a very simple jig, not so extreme as yours, but with great results. You are a terrific mentor! Great success .

1ARTHURJR: Geeze man,, get something done !  12 1/2  minutes of talk and no go........ still nothing done !  BORING !

Bak Draft: to complicated

Nathan .Harper: really liked the video, great idea, if you go to gough custom's sight he made something of the same sort, but maybe a little easier to build :)

Adam Savage: Thanks 6S, Never thought of that before. Would probably use a 3.5mm so you get the "tramline" rather than a dead central line :)

Adam Savage: lol, no worries buddy. You can use a caliber to scribe the lines. Anything made of hardened steel with a sharp edge will do the job. Just make sure you leave about a 1mm gap between the lines in the centre, so when it's hardened you can grind the bevels down to their final edge. This gets rid of the surface where the carbon has burnt off, getting down to the hard steel again. :)

trackerbuckmann1111: typo city.. sorry. late and i am tired.

trackerbuckmann1111: you can also use a dial caliper to scribe the edge. you just set on side of the top if the blank and use the other side to scribe a stright line down the side as you drag it along.

Adam Savage: You're absolutely correct. At the time this video was made I didn't have an inclinometer, so thought I'd use the roofers square. Thanks for the advice though mate.

shazdee: You could achieve the same result in a much simpler way with a device called an inclinometer. Where you're measuring angles and cutting out bits of cardboard, with an inclinometer you simply sit the magnetic side on top of your file and adjust your jig until you get the desired angle reading. I got mine for about $9 AUS. About 6 GBP. They are sold in most hardware or tool shops. Assuming your blade stock is level you will get perfect repeatable angles every time with 30sec of setup time.

Adam Savage: No worries buddy. Glad it was of some use

EpicWeaponries: LOL thanks mait i needed to know how to roughly make one

EpicWeaponries: thats maittay

Adam Savage: I have spent quite a bit of time around Somerset and Dorset, but Northants myself lol. Thanks mate

CallousDnb: Somerset bey? lol, Excellent video mate, thanks a lot.

Jose Eduardo Carvalho Florido: Yours is solid staff, my its wood and improvisation mater. But I ve seeing your video again, and you give thats nice idea for me starte another project. Also I like your way work with knifes. Thanks a lot.

Adam Savage: I'm sure it's much better my friend

Jose Eduardo Carvalho Florido: Ok. I will show you my try of jig... Is not good as your.

Adam Savage: My apologies. I understand what you mean. Sounds like a good idea :) Many thanks for the kind comment Adam

Jose Eduardo Carvalho Florido: Sorry about my english. I meant even using a adjustable"bar" just make MARKS for start degrees and them makes final control. Any way is very good jig made by metal.

Volkan çetinkaya: merhaba ben samsung j7 almayı düşünüyorum bütçe 1300 e kadar ne alabilirim. şimdiden teşekkür ederim
Wade Weigle: You know, you need to find a sound bit of "George of the Jungle"  
hardygirl81: returning mine soon tribeca liquid taste weird it taste better as a cart great vapor production but disgusting
Digby O'Dell: I think most of the dense tree ring growth is due to the tap not getting good water. Some sapling spruce I planted almost thirty years ago on a sandy hillside with no competition and full sun grew to about 6 ft. tall in 26 years and they've grown about 6 more in the last 2 years.
Gunther L.: I used it one entire year and now changed to mcafee. Comodo doesnt seems to protect well from keyllogers and phishing sites. But i might be wrong. Sandbox seems awesome but signatures should be considered also very important by comodo technicians
Naestved DK: I like how H.P. sometimes provides advice that is actually good. It means that I can't be sure where a video is going, and I appreciate that.
