  1. 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.
  2. 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 ^^
  3. 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..
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. it's allright - old girl is still alive and the horn of the anvil is still attached
  8. 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
  9. Cameras Doug, get a pair in the shop
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. -.- don't have enough power for the welder... So I have to buy a smaller newer one
  13. 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 $
  14. 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 ?
  15. 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
