  1. Hi Simon - Yep it sure is , well one kilogram is the max hammer i can move for long enough to forge anything, and comfortably hold, anything more and I get tired quick. Just talked with my grannys husband, he can indeed help me build the shop like a miniature version of the shipyards smithy he was trained in as a youth or any other part of heavy industry.. And my parents have given me permission to build a shop to my specifications to keep me with a place I can go to and do whatever hobby i got, also planning on making a small woodworking shop. The wheelchair is not at the moment a thin
  2. Okay, I am in the situation that within a year or 2 i need to move - and there I will have an option to build a workshop - but as my body has taken a hammering, I now need to find ways to: Lift and hold heavier objects(anything about 1 kg makes difficulties) Right now my plan is using a travers crane the entire shop length(with another beam to move all XYZ axis' in order to achive maximum control and ability with the heaviest as possible objects - i maybe ill but i still like swinging around chunks of hot metal ), in a manner as to make it possible moving ANY piece of equipment/tool around w
  3. Jerrod - Yes, I have written to them and asked what their requirements for a model would be, should have the answer in the next week. thank you for the information about how the model for mold making is done quite useful.
  4. I can finally entertain my 1 ton anvil idea again since i am moving in the next year or so, I will be having space for a blacksmith shop of good size ^^ and just the right size for a 1000 kg bragging anvil(and working ofc.) to be turned to a model, the foundry can make the cast for 5000€ so the big hunt is on: Where to find a craftsman able to make a relative sturdy and portable model for casting a 1000 kg anvil having waiting a few years has been great for other businesses to show up (or me refining my searching criteria :P) it will probly be a relatively large woodworking job or somethi
  5. That is why we help the neighbour what a sweet gesture.
  6. I SAWED THIS BOAT IN HALF.. nah :b don't have the power to that anymore, but i did manage to get my shop nice and shiny after a couple of cleaning sessions xD NEVER let dust,grime and debri accumulate in your shop, because it ends up being time capsules xD we had old papers from 1999 or 1998 etc. floating around -> no more of that, so now i got a tidy work space ^^
  7. Thank you Ron Benson - yeah i have been circling them but i haven't been able untill now finding a credible source, I'll check them out, since it isn't small bucks i would be throwing their way xD
  8. super thanks SteveShimanek Al Massey thanks idk why my text decided to change to this.. sorry :b but thanks you guys , could be awesome if i could get the stones to make my blades for kitchen knives , now i just need to find the funds to buy myself poor in cash but rich in stones !
  9. It has been a while since i have been active in here ;), had a lot on my plate, had to almost completely give up making charcoal this summer made a single batch with my new retort :b just got to glue the insulation to it and find a shell to protect it from rain and water :P. But My body has completely broken down.. i have constant pains and aches and cannot work at the forge because i am too heavily medicated (opioids and cannabis is the only thing keeping me sane a long side muscle relaxers...) So i have moved to stock removal by hand, i cannot trust myself around power tools and fire an
  10. salvaged 4 square metres of 304 stainless 2 mm thick ^^ now I just need to order that blasted TIG welder xD but got materials now.
  11. Nice haul Garry i'm still waiting patiently for the other farms to start breaking bearings like they always do come harvest season alredy got a sack full of harrow-teeth 10 mm round stock in a coil (straigthened out its about 2½ meters of it ^^
  12. Decided to finally find a plasma cutter no more breaking cut off disks flying - just a pressure vessel ready to blow and risk of 140A jolt of lightning xD.. Next up: LOTS of research, don't want to break the bank - but I want to cut stuff up to 35 mm thick^^ probly going to spend €€€ or $$$ but enough, trying to separate a 40 mm plate in half with a grinder is torture xD thought about an oxy acetylene torch but I like working with air pressure more than acetylene..
  13. Not a bad idea with a magnet gotta try that, thanks ! Edit: tried it : thanks a bunch no more metal splinters buried in finger tips xD
  14. Got around to finally clear the drill press table from shavings it actually isn't a plate - it has ridges in it xD under all the shavings
