    Made some good progress last night and this morning.
    A few milling shots. Yep, broke my bit. As you can see in the following pics, my friend Harbeer of HSCIII forge gave me a pro milling tip. Push mill (drill) first, then clean the slot. Much easier.

    Shaping the handle on the grinder. Went very well.

    Then final sanding and rub a little oil/beeswax to finish. :)
    There will be some touch up and buff after this, but it's about done. Next is the epoxy glue-up.

    Looks Great Mark! Ssooo I've been wondering, why silver half dollars?

    Hey Jeff. I really like silver. It's just my personal preference. I could say that it has antimicrobial properties, but that isn't why. :)
    The halves are perfect for working with. They are the right size. I just have to grind off the faces.
    They take a nice shine and don't tarnish so much.
    Do you like them?

    They look great! It's the first time I've seen something like that and was curious how it came about, pretty cool.
