  1. Matt Stagmire uses a wheel like it to grind fullers in swords.
  2. I still havent made it to Grand Rapids to pick this up but I have been looking at pictures of this today and I realized that the wheel that's on it is a contact wheel. I originally thought it was 2 plates that securely fastened the wheel but that's not what it is. It appears to be a 1/2 inch wheel with a small rubber strip around it.
  3. I'm going to try and straighten this buffalo horn. Hopefully it works. It will look really nice on this blade.
  4. I pulled this out of the project in progress drawer of my tool box and ended up with this big ol' Bowie out of this material. It really is bigger than the pictures mak it look. I have a lot of work to do yet. I forged the bevels with the power hammer and have some hammer marks to work out of it. But here is another project progressing.
  5. Big dog forge made one for his surface grinder build. It was fabricated instead of cast but might give you some ideas.
  6. https://www.bayouclassicdepot.com/products/hose-to-lp-regulator-male-male-brass-fitting?_pos=72&_sid=68f6143f5&_ss=r This would be the male to male adapter you would need for the regulator alan linked.
  7. This is what I get for not tempering right after heat treating. I'm going to cut the entire edge off and re-forge the blade. There is plenty of steel to work with so It should be okay.
  8. I'm finally going to finish this thing and have 3 phase power to the shop. Hopefully by the end of the weekend it will be up and running.
  9. Insonora anvils, made for the South American market by fisher anvils are very rare but there out there. Keep your eyes open for one of these french pattern anvils down there in Ecuador!
  10. Also I started this axe yesterday and finished forging and heat treated today. Tomorrow I will grind it and use this white oak pallet board for the handle.
  11. Here is the BIG canister Damascus chopper I started almost a year ago with a friend and today we did a bunch of grinding on it. It was really thick and heavy because we wanted to make sure all the can was ground off. Here is a dirty etch to make sure all the can was gone.
  12. There was a period of time I had major pains in my left fingers mainly my middle and ring fingers and my left elbow. I figured out it was the really heavy tongs I was using (the only pair I had at the time) and the death grip. Along with fighting to use them for stock too big for the tongs. I started using tong clips and then started buying more tongs and havent had an issue sense. The only problems I've had with my hammer side is cramps in my forearm. I use a light grip on my hammer and once the hammer makes contact with the steel I grip the hammer and lift then it's back to a light grip as the hammer comes back down. Keep your thumb off the back side of the handle also. When we have another forging session together we will work on hammer control and grip methods!
  13. Wow I must have been wore out after forging this hammer because its nowhere near 5 lbs. It weighs 51 ounces or 3.18 lbs.
  14. I went out to the shop with a plan to make a long handled punch to drive out the wedge to the top die on my power hammer. Which I did but had no plan after that. I ended up cutting a big chunk of forklift tine and squared it up and then forged this. I'm not sure of the weight but it has to be all of 5 lbs.
