    Beginners beware

    Only reason I use charcoal is I can make it myself propane is nice to use , but can get really pricey when forging larger stock.

    A priest and a rabi walks into a bar, and the bartender says " What's this ? Some kind of joke?"

    Any doctors in the room?

    You might have experienced heart palpitations, but doing this sort of diagnose over internet is a bit of a crab shoot.

    hydraulic press

    Yeah, think I'll stick with hand drawing out billets for now it will have to wait for my engineer buddy is back . Though I may not need it then, because either my arms got huge from all the hammering or I run into some elbow injury xD

    hydraulic press

    Okay Geoff how about hydraulic ? Isn't a couple of squishes enough to set welds and draw out stock ?

    hydraulic press

    I got a quick question : when building a forging press with bottle jacks, do they stack ? I mean would two 20 ton jacks connected give 40 tonnes pressure ?

    The Only difference between oxy/acetylene and TIG : TIG is not happy about dirt,rust and grease, acetylene just burns the crap away ^^ .. And it's hell'a hard to light a cigar with a TIG torch
