SCYTHE OF DOOM!

This giant masonry blade has been sitting around Freeside forever:

Rust and dust are indicators of abandonment.
Please make use of the rusty and dusty.
Note the diamond tipped edge


















I KNOW! 
Let's make a giant scythe for my Halloween costume!! 
(Never too early to plan)



Safety first. There will be a lot of sparks, noise, and dust. 
Wear appropriate safety equipment.
Make an outline of the blade (on the blade)


Start cutting. 
Here I used the cutting wheel for the angle grinder.



Basic shape


Switched to the grinding blade for the angle grinder. 
I also went to the bench grinder for the edge.

Still rough but a good start for Sean's "Scythe of Doom"

Next time on this Old Makerspace:
-Clean up shape.
-Sharpen
-Polish
-Make holes for mounting on pole.


Later:
-Start on pole to mount it to.
STAY TUNED FOR MORE!
