Been stuck at home today thanks to the teacher strike.
So aside from watching the sproglodites, i've been in and out of the shop grinding away at a scrap of D2 tool steel. I drew on a basic shape:
and then started to shape the profile........ D2 is some tough stuff to work with!
Tweaked the shape a bit:
And about an hour ago got the profile done:
Hoping to get it on the surface grinder at work tomorrow to dress the flats, and then i'll drill some holes. Planning to taper the tang on this yin, and also put bolsters on.
Tune in this time next year and i might be nearly finished!
