Knifemaker Restore Antique Cleaver

Restoring an old cleaver and fitting a new handle made in my style. I found this old beauty in a thrift store, it's 36cm (14inch) overall with 23cm (9inch) long blade 11cm (4.3inch) at his widest. The steel is some kind of high carbon heat treated to an hardness between 50 and 55 on the Rockwell scale, appropriate for a cleaver. The construction is very interesting with the tang forge welded and riveted to the blade. I guess the extra part on the handle is some kind of guard and the protrusion on the spine is possibly there as a stop when pushing on the spine with the other hand. Not sure! Say something in the comments if you know better. Guard is made of brass, pinned in place with two 3mm brass round pins. The thin dark wood strip is wenge and the rest is beech with a white vulcanized fiber liner. Both wood are stabilized, process described in this video: Index of operation and materials: 1:18 Electrolysis: water and sodium carbonate solution, parts connected to negative side and steel sacrificial anodes to positive sice of a DC power supply (car battery charger). 2-3 hrs at 10amp. 2:20 Checking hardness with Rockwell files 2:50 Refining profiles and grinding bevels on the 2x72 belt grinder 3:44 Hand sanding the blade up to 400 grit 4:12 Grinding a flat spot for the scales on the tang 4:34 Drilling pin hols for the bolster 4:44 Cutting brass stock for the guard on metal cutting band saw 5:07 Marking and drilling holes on the tang 5:24 Grinding bolster shape 5:50 hand sanding and polishing the border of the guard 6:12 Etching the blade in ferric chloride 6:40 Peening the bolster in place 7:54 Gluing parts of the handle together with epoxy resin 8:44 Gluing handle together 9:15 Cleaning sequeezeout glue with nitro solvent 9:26 Rough profiling with rasps 9:56 Squaring everything up with 2x72 10:20 Drilling pin holes (glued in offcamera) 10:40 Hand sanding to finish 11:00 Buffing on cotton wheel with fine polishing compound 11:20 Boiled linseed oil 11:30 Grinding in micro bevel with very fine belt 11:48 Hand stopping on leather with fine polishing compound Thanks a lot for watching, I hope you liked the video!

How I Made My Own iPhone - in China

I built a like-new(but really refurbished) iPhone 6S 16GB entirely from parts I bought in the public cell phone parts markets in Huaqiangbei. And it works! How much did it cost? Answer here: I've been fascinated by the cell phone parts markets in Shenzhen, China for a while. I'd walked through them a bunch of times, but I still didn't understand basic things, like how they were organized or who was buying all these parts and what they were doing with them. So when someone mentioned they wondered if you could build a working smartphone from parts in the markets, I jumped at the chance to really dive in and understand how everything works. Well, I sat on it for nine months, and then I dove in.
