  1. Alan, I saw where he is located. I suggested that he watch my video. He could buy my DVD and I could ship it to him reasonably. He can build Moe's grinder from off the shelf bar stock and angle iron, which he may even have in his scrap pile.
  2. Check out the video on the grinders page then look at the DVDs page for getting the DVD at www.WayneCoeArtistBlacksmith.com. Let me know if I can help you.

  4. Jaro, I knew that it was and my response was made in a light hearted way. Of course you could take a trip and come here to pick it up and take it back. I don't charge extra for visits.
  5. Well let's see. Hobbit Country, is that New Zealand? I ship by USPS flat rate boxes. When I checked for shipping it would run over $400.00l so for a $60.00 sale I don't think that I could do that.
  6. Check out the Build a Gas Forge and the Ribbon Burner attachments on the Forge Supplies page at www.WayneCoeArtistBlacksmith.com. Let me know if I can help you. About $100.00 plus the hose, regulator and burner using a 20# Propane tank. I suggest that you build your wooden form first and then fill it with dry sand, or flour, or rice, or some such product measured in pints to make sure that you order the correct needed castable.
  7. You can probably get much higher heat, more controllable atmosphere and use less fuel with a ribbon burner. Check out the Build a Gas Forge and the Ribbon Burner attachments on the Forge Supplies page at www.WayneCoeArtistBlacksmith.com. Let me know if I can help you. About $100.00 plus the hose, regulator and burner using a 20# Propane tank.
  8. It is important to use tapered mig tips and Ward black pipe fitting. Ward is a brand name here in the US primarily used in sprinkler systems. You might also check www.ZollerForge.com for Larry's Y fitting burner kit and his Ward burner kit. The shell certainly should not get red at the burner attachments. I don't like square forges and prefer a round forge with the burner entering at a tangent to obtain a swirling flame and therefore avoiding hot spots and more even heat.

  9. Just Google "Tire Hammer". You could get the plans from Clay Spencer and build your own. I think that both Raymond and David ship by freight company or you could engage a freight company to pick up and deliver the hammer. I just Googled Blacksmith Tire Hammer and got lots of hits.
  10. It sounds like a tire hammer would suit you well. If you don't want to build your own check with either Raymond Head or David Custer. You can find both on FaceBook.
  11. I suggest the design on my web site rather than with a slit down the side. With my design you can have the sides closed to conserve and contain the heat but also can open the side up if needed or even raise the top so that both sides have openings. You can even raise the top as much as needed and block the sides with fire brick. If the Freon tank is to large for your desires you can add an additional layer of Inswool before casting.
  12. I'm sorry Jon, I just looked over the attachment that John wrote. I had added some notes from my early research. If it was not in a PDF and a problem to remove I would delete all of the notes beyond John's original article. I used his original article and then wrote the other Ribbon Burner attachment. I kept it as simple as possible and still get the desired results. I will soon try to delete the extraneous text.
  13. Forget the gas diffuser! Just follow the instructions in the attachments on the Forge Supplies page of my web-site. That is the way I did it 10 years ago and it has worked perfectly ever since.
  14. Jon, you need the gate valve so that you can fine tune the air flow, therefore, the atmosphere inside the forge and the temp. I got mine on e-bay for $15.00 total. You could use a PVC gate valve for more reasonable pricing.
