Hello to all. My name is Mark Watson and I am new to knife making, maybe six months. I am a retired Firefighter/Paramedic got a little bored and went to the Law Enforcement Academy and now I work as a Deputy Sheriff. I Did a little forge work 30 years ago with Grandpa helping him make horseshoes. I have a small forge ,anvil and various hammers. Didn't realize how much my arthritis in my hands would hurt working on the forge. I am looking for an inexpensive easy to build foot operated hammer. I found a design made from 2 x 4's and 2 x 6's which I have plenty of. If anyone has an idea or plans I would be very grateful for the help.
Looking forward to being on this forum and learning from you.
Be Safe Everyone
