1. Due to the amount of SPAM from foreign countries lately, we have made the decision to manually approve all new members. While we regret that this must be done and the added time that it will take for new members to be approved, it is necessary at this time. We hope to have legitimate new members approved in a timely manner, no longer than a couple of hours. If the Administrators are online at the time, it can be as soon as a couple of minutes. Thank you for your patience.

    If I remember correctly Matt Paul was doing similar testing with his 80CrV2 chopping some metals. Great stuff.

    Man, this thing was stolen! Congrats!
    I wanted to get in but knew it would cost a fortune in pennies, $200 easily before I'd get tired of chopping em up!
    Keep up the great work! Look forward to seeing the next one.......
