Making a cleaver from a worn out 10″ saw blade.
-Brief welding without gloves will not flash burn your skin and give you skin cancer.
-NEVER wear gloves while operating cutting, drilling and belt driven machines – the glove can be pulled in and you will end up with a much more severe injury as a result. If your skin is too tender for this work, take up knitting instead.
-The steel used in this project is perfectly suitable for this use. It is not contaminated and will not give you cancer.
-Hot water and soap to wash, dry thoroughly with a towel and coat with oil will clean and prevent the blade from rusting. Rust is not toxic.
-This is not a “How To” video. It is a look at how I made this cleaver, for my own use. View this as entertainment.
