Broke it in today, absolutely love it, cuts through the ground like cheese.
I sharpend my old pick with a grinder....took a bit of grinding I can tell ya! And no where near the original shape, but has held up pretty well. It's my big pick, and dosnt get much use though to be honest, it was my only pick for a few years though.Broke it in today, absolutely love it, cuts through the ground like cheese.
When the spade end gets blunt, can I use a grinder to sharpen it or will that soften the steel?
My last session I thought ide start with a little exploration dig, thought ide strip inch by inch and goldmonster it to see if theres any fly poo.That's a lot of wear. Youre obviously digging too much gold
That pick of mine, made from an old rusty plough disk, in the above photo has done two full seasons, more than 1500 (small) nuggets. I wouldn't have any reason to sharpen the blade end because it's hardly changed.
