Looking good! Never tried the over-the-front style guard myself.

Woops! This is what sometimes happens when you try to pull a warp out.

Kev, I understand that part. Hate to see it on you, and you were looking good at that point.
However, I am glad you posted it as it happened. It is good to see that not everything works just right in a shop or not all of it comes out with flowers and unicorns. It takes a lot of work to go back and do it all again, often several times before it leaves a shop.
Good to see you going at it as well as you do. Hang in there bubba.

That's a bummer Kevin. I was waiting to see that one done.
Are you going to try it again?

I used 1084 just in case I messed up. I'm going to try another since I've already got the guard slotted, but I'm not going to grind as much before heat treat.

it should have been about 65 if the second one warps I'll try to fix it between temper cycles.
