Re: Flint knapping first try

My knapping consist of chert rock usually found in creek washes. I attack it with a hammer until something resembling a gun flint fly’s off. Then a little work with a brass or copper rod, and jaw it up. Sparks as good or better than most.

The screwdriver in front of the wheel chock was a visual clue to the pilot that the aircraft was armed, fueled and all ready to go -- just in case a "scramble" was called while the Crew Chief or Flight Chief were elsewhere.

Even with proper bell on the mouth, I still use larger expanders than he suggests. Brass has some spring back, and I prefer no more than .001" under bullet diameter.
I machine my own for .001 to .0015 under sized bullet dia, so pretty much the same here.
