All items are located in Woonsocket Rhode Island, and most of them CAN be delivered within about a 3 hour radius, or to area blacksmith events.
SOLD - Took a while to decide to part with this, but... I don't use it, and it accumulates tools on top of it instead of being used. I've got plenty of other anvils that do get used, so much as it pains me, I'm going to sell my minty fresh 450lb Fisher Sawyer's anvil, 1902 dated, 12x16 face, so smooth and flat that you can see your reflection in it. This thing is immaculate, not a hammer mark on it. It's located in Woonsocket Rhode Island, and due to no longer having a pickup truck, I cant deliver it. I can load it with my engine hoist though, and whoever gets it can also get the large oak stump that's appropriately large to hold an anvil this size.
SOLD - Hammond UBG132 grinder, refurbished with dual speed motor , new drive pulley, new tension screw. Runs great, has a 2x14 contact wheel.
Motor is 3ph 2hp 3600/1800 rpm, controlled by drum switch. It will run off a VFD but I've got a rotary phase converter in my shop.
I'll include a few cases of 2x132 belts in 80 and 220 grit (~100 of each belt or so). Weighs around 250 to 300lbs
SOLD - brand new coal forge, which is take down and collapsible for easy transport... I built it for demonstrating, and then have only demonstrated using propane since I built it, and I'm unable to use coal at my own shop because of neighbors and finicky sensitive fire alarm systems.
This is the New England Blacksmith's forge design, as will be seen at the 2018 and 2020 ABANA conferences for use in the teaching areas. We built a ton of these for use by the NEB and they're fantastic, so good that the Atlantic Blacksmiths went and bought fire pots and cad drawings to build their own. The NEB fire pot is awesome, built like a tank extra heavy casting, and the side draft hood works amazingly well for such a compact design. You could buy the fire pot for 215, the fabricated air tyure for 75 and the do it yourself weld together kit for the forge for 350... or you could buy it all assembled from me for $600 and save both time and money and get a fantastic tool to use for decades to come.
SOLD - Selling my fly press. Located in Woonsocket RI, with some capability of transporting elsewhere in a 3ish hour radius. EA-Adams #2-A fly press with custom machined base plate with tapped half inch hold down holes, includes a too holder adapter for smaller tooling, and a nice bending tool for using into a V block or tooling. The paint has seen better days, but the press is functionally in fantastic shape..
Vacuum pump table for casting, investment, stabilizing, etc. This table was built by Jim Kelso, and I got it from him when I bought his casting equipment. I have a gesswin casting machine however which also has it's own vacuum table and vacuum casting chamber, and I don't need two. This one I'm selling is arguably the better of the two however, but I like the compactness of the other I'm keeping. This is a professional oil-less GAST 4VSF vacuum pump and 12 inch bell housing. The pump alone is a $1000 pump new.
Here's the data sheet for the pump https://gastmfg.com/prod…/compressors-and-pumps/pistons/4vsf
and some photos of the table and bell housing. It pulls 26lbs after only 10 seconds, and will climb up to the 28 point if you give it time, so it works fantastic. Asking $250
