  1. Love the patterns, fantastic work OH YEAH!!! Welcome to the forum...
  2. I've seen lots of ingredients (up to and including horseshit) so far on my search ratios and proportions are some times strange sounding too but it's the thrill of the hunt right ...
  3. Thanks for the reply the site you posted before the edit was interesting you must have edited it out while I was lookin at it.....
  4. Any one here know a recipe that really works ??? the store bought aint cheap where I live (and I am) aside from the fact that I like to experiment with DIY stuff, seems to me if it's sold on the market someone has to have experimented to develop it. I know I'll get words about tried and true off the shelf stuff but doin it yourself is to me anyway what makes it fun and then sharin with like minded people makes it complete...
  5. Did some searching: the website is..www.johnsongas.com the model 122 looks like the one I learned on a lot longer ago than I like to admit....
  6. I agree they're not a great forge, but for basic heat and hammer techniques they do the job nicely, (ie) high school metal shop. The trench design allows for multiple pieces to be heated simultaniously making it a good choice for teaching basics to several at a time, and as Al noted, it is UL listed and used in quite a few west coast schools .........
  7. The High School I attended used a Johnson trench forge that ran on natural gas don't remember the model but no one managed to blow it up !!! And I'm sure some bonehead tried to, It was High School after all.... They are, I beleive, still doing business.........
  8. Poor prep work causes most all failures my .02
  9. Twenty Mule team borax does the job without breakin the bank........
  10. I've seen but never used that style of hammer before What, if there are, the advantages....??? Nice lookin work....
  11. The concept is O.K. but the price is flat friggen rediculous !!!!
  12. This time of year the forge IS my shop heat
  13. I like 5160 spring steel myself it is to a point forgiving and reliable at hardening and tempering, besides the fact that most any automotive suspension spring (flat or coil) is that type, making the cost of stock easier on the wallet by recycling. Just my two cents..............I have some torsion bars that I'm lookin to experiment with as soon as I can get some specs on composition. Finding out the unknown is fun....
  14. Nice flowing lines, looks too nice to be a camp tool...
  15. Thats a dang nice lookin mistake !!
  16. An EXTREMELY inspirational work !!! I shall be dreaming of, and wishing to live in the days my Nordic forefathers for a month (or more) after seeing this THANK YOU for sharing.........Cliff
