  1. I watched alec steele's latest video and after watching it, it took me 10 minutes to tune my hammer in so the tup doesn't hit the top plate anymore!!!
  2. Practicing social distancing!!! Nothing like a little surf fishing.
  3. The frame is what I'm interested in copying!!! Blacksmithing is a hobby that I have kinda went overboard with. As of now I dont have a website. I'm not real tech savvy. The shop is coming along slowly. It seems to be a constant disaster. As for heat in the shop, I kinda like the cold. I've always wanted to move to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan where it seems to be a nice cool temp during the summer and sub zero temps 6 months of the year. Here is all the stuff I have for my hammer build. https://www.bladesmithsforum.com/index.php?/topic/37305-350-lb-power-hammer-build/
  4. If you dont mind I might use some of your designs in my BIG air hammer build!
  5. What size flat stock did you use for these spring fullers?
  6. In trying to figure out just by the picture how to go about mounting one of these to a machine? Maybe some more pictures would help?
  7. Forged a ball peen hammer from a chisel plow tine.
  8. Just an observation. When running my venturi burner I have the pressure quite high....like 20 psi or so. I have a feeling if you increase the pressure it will have a better venturi effect and will run better. At 5 psi it's not enough pressure to push the propane and air into the forge and its igniting in the burner tube which is why I recommended the 30 psi regulator. Try cranking up the pressure to around 15-20 psi.
  9. Yup that would be the problem. The wind is disrupting the venturi effect. This happens to me when I have the garage door open. you can make a wind block but as long as your outside a breeze will do that. You will find a sweet spot where it will run good. Glad to see you have it running!!!
  10. Made some modifications to my top die of the hammer. The top die has a hole drilled and tapped to be able to bolt on various tooling. I off set the tooling so I can have a bolster next to it to drive the drift in rounding hammers.
  11. A 2 inch forced air burner will outperform 2- 1 inch venturi burners. As far as gas savings my big forced air forge is a gas guzzling monster.
  12. If I could have 4 hammers all running. A self contained a pneumatic and 2 mechanicals all set up with different dies I would be happy!!! I would love a 300 lb chambersburg!!!
  13. Ironically it leaves a lot of ash but it is somewhere between oak and pine as far as forging. I really like pine when I want to weld and oak and ash for normal forging. I can weld with any charcoal I just prefer pine for it.
  14. Looks like some good stuff!!! Being a collier is fun isnt it. There is something relaxing and rewarding about it!!! I made a batch of ash charcoal this morning.
