1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    Thought that instead of creating a new thread every time I made a new blade,I should keep them all in one thread...

    This will probably be a large work in process,updated every time I make something new,at the moment I have a few things going on,a large batch of my 3 inch hunters in a variety of woods and a 13'' bowie in walnut...

    While I was taking some pictures,I also took some of the shed where all of my work is done,the shed & all its contents were paid for by me selling knives,pens,pull through kits and other things :)

    It's 8' x 8' and has a few power tools (bandsaw,lathe,sander and pillar drill) plus lots of little tools and enough wood to last me a few years :D

    Anyway...the workshop:

    From the outside..

    Inside,on the right:
    [​IMG]

    You can see the lathe and pillar drill plus some storage under the main bench.

    [​IMG]

    The tool board,the bottom row of tools are my HSS woodturning chisels

    [​IMG]

    The back of the shed holds the bandsaw,belt sander and wood storage underneath

    [​IMG]

    and the right side of the shed is where the knives are finished

    [​IMG]





    That's the workshop,now for some knives!

    here's what I have going on at the minute,about 7-8 of my hunter stainless knives in different woods plus a bowie at the bottom, I'm hoping to bring some of the knives to the meet although some are already spoken for,if you fancy one,let me know!

    [​IMG]

    And these are the knives that are on their last coat of oil and nearly finished:

    [​IMG]


    I'm hoping to get some more done during the week and I have another 2 blanks waiting for me at the post office but I start work experience tomorrow so updates on the thread will be rather slow...

    I was going to say 'proppa man's shed' then I saw the dyson:D
    Looking good though.
    Have you got hinge pins on that door else its all too easy for someone to unscrew the hinges from the outside as i discovered to my detriment many years ago:(
    Looking forward to following your thread, maybe a few 'heres how i do it' videos:)

    It's not even a Dyson,morrisons bargain basement special ;)

    The hinges and locks are all held with some special security screws with an odd sized head so I'm not sure although I'll be sorting additional security out soon.

    I did do a thread a while ago,kind of a small tutorial but I'll do another one soon with a different knife :)

    I wished my shed was as clean and tidy as that. I have double the space as you but way too much crap in there, although its all good crap for making things, well it is when i can find it.

    Well done on investing the cash so wisely Matt. I'd have p****d it up against a wall when I was your age.

    Hear him - "When I was your age" - when did I turn into my dad? :lol: :(

    Having just taken delivery of one of Matts gems it's nice to see its origins

    His knifes are a real work of art and what a high end finish he gets....

    Out at the weekend with a few shooting pals who all commented on the quality and value.

    Keep up the great work Matt and once again , thank you
