Bottle bottom round 2.

Post by megalithic on Tue Jul 05, 2016 8:12 pm

So after my total defeat at the hands of the bottle bottom beast yesterday i decided a rematch was on the cards today. it proved quite a tussle, and whilst i didn't come out the overall victor i think i just about earned myself an honorable draw. Smile

Very nice, is it flat? I've never managed to get bear bottle bottoms to flatten out perfectly. Then I discovered those two for a pound magnifying glasses in pound stores.

Here's a few sources of glass I have found.

Thanks barnacle. it's not bad i guess.

Grendel. yes i can get them flat but it very much depends on how brave you are thinning them out i find, i tend to break a few. This one (and most i do) are convex as i find it gives the body more strength and a better overall profile. Not that i shoot them though.
Btw. Are you owner of prehistorics? I need to order some decent flint. The stuff i picked up on my recent trip is, well....bobaar! Very Happy

Parcel arrived today. Nice to work with something that has a nice ring to it instead of a dull thud. Thanks! Smile

Started making a knife last night but broke the end off whilst thinning.
