  1. 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..
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. Never got around to the one tonne anvil got that for later - for now I'm going to visit a mate I haven't seen in 5 years but turns out he's beginning knifemaking and going down to visit next weekend, it's on an folk highschool (danish thing) that used to be a high class japanese bording school, turns out they have a power hammer old but we can try it and use it. Going to bring some charcoal from the retort ^^ Fortunately he has alredy gotten an anvil xD I really don't want to travel with my big one
  5. it's allright - old girl is still alive and the horn of the anvil is still attached
  6. Al You're quite the necromancer I had totally forgotten about this thread ! She's still a live and kicking my ol' anvil been forging quite a bit in that proces
  7. Cameras Doug, get a pair in the shop
  8. Looks like a Sherman TIG 320 AC/DC is a good machine but if i can buy that big older one for 200$ i'll go for that
  9. Okay - found this one https://svejsevaerk.dk/shop/magnum-thf238-pro-572p.html 60% duty cycle both TIG and MMA ^^ so now I just need a plasma cutter
  10. -.- don't have enough power for the welder... So I have to buy a smaller newer one
  11. Nice unit Paul but I need some more juice ! Found a guy selling a 320 A TIG welder ^^ 250 A 100% cycle AC/DC 500 $
  12. Brass O.O ?! keep that devil out of my shop I've hated that metal since marine engineering school xD devilsh chip they make stick to everything. I'm probly damaged by enviroment xD always learned to weld on the big stuff, so for me bigger=better - it isn't unusual for me to have a request welding some really big stuff with TIG :b what's the duty cycle on the 780$ unit ?
  13. Opened the retort to day : SUCCES only 10% wasn't carbonized ! So next run: install insulation in the bottom (going for some insulating refractory brick) Also - I need to get some thicker steel in there, getting a bit too soft at 600C
  14. I'm expanding my workshop capabilities - so now I got my eye on a TIG welder : MIGATRONIC Model: MDU 400 big ol' one heavy one I can get it for 1000 $ - is it a good buy ? It's old but working order - It's for welding anything we can't with stick welders.
  15. Allright if my health allows - I now have a stick welder for 130 A 100% of the time ^^ and 60/40 cycle on full. And I got a present granny needed a new cast iron stove/oven ? any way I can have the thick cast iron sides to use as a sun catcher to increase temp in my wood dryer
