Sparks are flying!

Here’s the first step in turning a lawn mower blade into a use-able knife; cutting to shape.  I use “Big Red” the Milwaukee 9″ angle grinder with my super sophisticated clamping system (“Stumpy”).  This is the best set up I can think of aside from an oxy-Acetylene torch or plasma cutter (both of which I don’t have).  Don’t worry, there are no patents pending on the stump clamp if you care to use my idea!

Good old fashioned fun!

All cut. Now for a lot of shaping and cleaning up on the bench grinder and sander. I can see these slicing paper already!
