Motors And Electrical Power

So, slow getting going today, figured a post would at least keep me active. " Step-By-Step Knifemaking" by David Boye has become a bit of a classic "must" for the novice pursuing the art of knifemaking. Everything is covered in this fine volume from setting up shop to etching designs into the steel. It may still be available as publisher remainders or in the used market. I had two a hardcover and a paperback. In a culling of my bookshelves to make more room, the paperback made it's way into the used market.

Below is a picture of the cover and an example of the many knife designs that Mr. Boye has produced. Many of these designs are covered in his step-by-step instructions.

In, setting up shop, is a basic but interesting article on motors and electrical requirements for setting up the small shop. Some of his comparisons rang a bell with me. Relating amps to the flow of water in a pipe and volts to the pressure pushing that water, helps to clarify, and is an analogy I was taught early on, obviously it stuck.

So it's basic, a little different, but interesting light reading on the subject.
