I was going to ask about HP next..

the grinder Im having built has a 2HP single phase.. I thought this was probably more than enough power.. but was curious.. If youre not having any problems with a 1.5... Im going to assume the 2HP will be way more than anything I'll ever need..

That sounds good to me, but admittedly I have a limited perspective.

I'm learning that forge-welded blades are faster to produce than monolithic blades, and that wrapped-eye hawks are quicker than punching eyes. I'm not "there" yet (it's still a little hit-&-miss), but I'm headed that way. I'm havin' a ball.

I had fun with the "viking" axe, which is supposed to be a Peterson's Type L. The handle's not done yet, I'm still fitting it up.
