    I want to clarify something here. There is no way in hell we are stoning all these daggers. It would take me a year and I already have tennis elbow despite not playing tennis.

    That's Jo's dagger and she's stoning her own dagger....

    Can I have one if I promise to stone it? :D

    No worries, I have a set of stones. I'm just surprised that one can apply a flat stone to the bevel, the way the grind was described.

    You have to shape the stone.

    It isn't a flat stone, and die maker stones are used on all sorts of irregularly-shaped molds

    Ah ha, I knew it! I almost wrote "(unless you shape the stone)"...
    Very nice, since it is at 320 grit already, it's almost ready for the double red micarta scales, and shipping to me in time for Christmas!

    Minnesota had some smoky skies yesterday also. I hope everyone ends up ok. 20200913_182542.jpg 20200913_182356.jpg

    On a different note. Has anyone who knows about electricity tried making what the dude in the video makes?

    Have I ever repaired windings on a stator on an induction motor? Yes, actually I have. That video is bullshit because the person who made it knows he has an induction current source that he's not showing. It would be very easy to recreate this video but it is disingenuous of the person who made it to imply that this is some sort of free power source because he knows he has set it in an AC field. It pisses me off when people create intentionally deceptive information and post it out on social media with the intention of misleading gullible people. Entirely too much misinformation today, it's getting where people can't even tell what's real and what's not.

    Ok. So. Since I asked, what is he not showing? I'm just curious, looking for interesting conversation about this that I can learn something from.

    That's all.

    I don't know exactly what he's not showing because there's more than one way to set up an AC field but the simplest way for most people would simply be to slit open an induction motor and pull out the stator and unfold it and set that up underneath the table. If it were me doing it I'd probably use an electromagnetic chuck from a surface grinder and set it to DMAG which would do the same thing

    Then the piece he has made is basically a section of a rotor of an induction motor

    An LED light bulb doesn't require much current to light, but you could generate a substantial amount of power given enough current. But the key thing here is this is not free energy, it's plugged into the wall but he's trying to imply this is some sort of free energy source which is shitty imo

    Shocker! Astronomers and astrophysicist are spotting possible signs of extraterrestrial microbial life in Venus's atmosphere. As a #stillnotastronomer #stillnotastrophysiscit I would've bet $ on Uranus first!

    Similar principle to those wireless phone chargers that can charge a phone without plugging it in. All you have to do is lay the phone on top of it.

    These schmucks are just hiding the unseen part underneath the 'table'.
