There is always something to learn. Everyone chooses his way, but as I said to you, a wonderful lesson my friend
Lots of people will thank you and others shut up but carry your seal into their work
Thanks for sharing

Thanks for the video, Ryan. It was well produced and packed with a lot of use info. I definitely will give your idea a try to see if it will improve my card scraping technique.

Cool video. I think I’ve been making the mistake of trying to get too aggressive burr. I’ll try your method the next time I can get some shop time. Thanks

Sorry about the sniffling. It was about 34 in my shop that day. (if it makes you feel better it bothered me too but I did not want to re-shoot.)
