  1. That bronze axe is just phenomenal !
  2. See you all in a few weeks. Hope the weather's a bit warmer this year since i plan on van-camping again =D Last year was single digits at night !
  3. Thanks will take it into advice =) I havent been over there in more than 10 years
  4. This was my main shop anvil for 12 years. I just picked up an anvil twice the size which is going to become my main shop anvil, and i dont really need all the anvils that I've got, so I'm going to let this one go. $500 , picked up at my shop in Woonsocket RI, or I can deliver it to the Swords through the Centuries event in Wolcott CT in a few weeks as well. 1 inch hardy hole, a hair oversized so 1 inch tooling actually fits properly. Will come mounted to the stump, since the stump is too small for my new anvil I cant reuse it.
  5. As usual, I'll be there! Not an event to miss. I'll have a big bag of disposable earplugs for people to borrow in t he bunkhouse again too =D
  6. Everyone I know who has one loves it. Honestly i don't know how you can say a non-self-contained air hammer is noisy... a compressor might be noisy, but the air hammer itself just has a little exhaust noise which is just a slight hiss and barely makes any noise at all.
  7. Very nice axes. Nothing like using a well made axe to get a real feel for 'using' tools. Powertools have us all spoiled =P
  8. yup completely free to use, dont have to pay unless you want to use extra icons and animated avatars and stuff
  9. Alternately we could just set up a discord server to hang out and chat blade stuff in, rather than trying to integrate it into the forum page
  10. That should be perfectly fine, because the evenheat controler has a fuse in it. (or at least mine does!) The trick is to have fuses in line with whatever circuit that will burn out before the wires catch fire, this can be a 'starter' with a fuse for a motor, just a twist in fuse for a kiln, or a breaker that's the right size. I've got my evenheat running off a 50 amp welder outlet as well =) EDIT: Ack, sorry for the necro-post, for some reason this one thread showed up as 'new' to me and i thought it was recent!
  11. Nice little hammer, that A frame must give it a lot of stiffness though
  12. Total weight on the flypress was around 450ish lbs, but It just sold locally this morning to someone who had emailed me. A smaller fly press like that (around 50 to 60lb arm weight) can do a LOT of work, particluarly veining, cold chiseling lines for decorative work, hot stamping, bending, etc. But with my hyrdaulic forging press and multiple power hammers, it just didnt get any use anymore.
  13. I tend to accumulate tools when the opportunity presents itself, but I've decided to be realistic about the tools i ACTUALLY use vs the ones that are just really nice to have. I do this stuff as a hobby, so i don't really need 3 belt grinders, 2 power hammers, 5 anvils, etc etc. It's hard to part with tools, but with my limited shop space, it only makes sense to down-size (or 'right-size' as i'm calling it) to the tools i'm actually using. For the most part I'm trying to give very reasonable prices on good tools to see them go to places where they'll get some use and to get more people involved in this sickness... er.. hobby... that we call bladesmithing =)
