I even made a holding clamp for pressure flaking. The flints can be a little difficult to hold firmly by finger pressure alone.

Are you aware that every time you throw away a worn Flint a 19th century Angel dies ?
Well - if that angle is not dead I will make sure he is dead by throwing two or three more at them to make sure they are :rolleyes: :horseback:. They are only useless rocks after the have served their intended purpose.;):dunno:
I have locks in 3 different sizes so I save my flints. About once a year I’ll pull the diamond tile saw out and reshape the old ones to the next usable size. And yes safety glasses are a must, luckily the water keeps the flint dust at bay.
