Some simple spaulders and besagues I made for my friend Edward:

I didn't appreciate how difficult it would be to polish the inside curves of the besagues, so they're not as sparkly as I'd intended.  The spaulders turned out pretty well though.  Making the transition between the dome at the top (yes, the picture is upside down) and the simpler arch near their base took a little time.  Polishing took forever.

I just found a stellar deal in a B-3 Beverly shear on E-Bay.  It's used, but looks like it's in excellent shape.  Even if I have to replace the blades right away, it's cheaper than any price I've seen for a B-2 shear.  This will let me cut out 3/16 mild steel.
