  1. If all goes as planned I will be there with the power hammer. Hopefully @ChrisBriggswill be able to attend with me too!
  2. Thank you. Yeah I do all my own processing all the way down to making jerky.
  3. Well I burned my foot really badly right before opening day of rifle season so I wasn't able to get my boot on. Now it's late firearms season for doe and I shot this nice sized doe last night right before dark. I shot her with my 6.5 grendel at 250+ yards.
  4. My dad and older brother shot a couple nice bucks this morning and my dad shot the doe too, about 5 minutes apart.
  5. It may also be wired for high voltage. I have seen 220 plug-ins that look like a normal 110. It would just be a matter of checking the wires that come out of the motor into the pecker.
  6. I think I may have found a meteorite. I dont have a good magnet but I'm trying to find one. Anyone have any experience identifying meteorites?
  7. It burned through the leather tongue of the boot in 2 spots. They are Caterpillar boots so there not cheapo boots either.
  8. I was welding on a hay ring for my neighbor and I had a little accident. Molten metal in the boot really sucks!!! I will never tie my boots in a double knot again.
  9. I haven't lit the forge since January when we got our puppy. Speaking of our puppy he is 11 months old and weighs over 100#. I have had an itch to make something though. I really wanna make a spear for an upper peninsula russian hog hunt I'm trying to save for.
  10. A few more in the works!!! The 2 bottom ones are serialized ar 15s and the top one is an 80% ar10 in the raw that will be chambered in 6.5 creedmoor
  11. 14 minutes 12 seconds into this video shows the grinder I was talking about. I will get pictures of mine in a little while.
  12. That looks a lot like the grinder John @black bear forge has. I believe he made it himself. Might be worth reaching out and see if he can give you some info. I have a hammond 4x132 that is similar too. I can get some pictures of it if it would help.
  13. This video may be useful to some people interested in a little forge like this.
  14. Well if they are selling it at that price again I will be stockpiling it regardless.
  15. Also....this winter if our local Lowes has the bags of charcoal I was buying last winter for $7 a bag I will stockpile it and bring a bunch with us for the smelt!!!
  16. Awesome. I will talk with my neighbor and have it set up to load when the time arrives!
  17. @Alan Longmire would it be worth it for me to bring the hammer down there? Would there be somewhere we can set it up? I have it on a vfd with about 50+ feet of wire already on it ready to go we just need 220 power.
  18. I should have mentioned that my hammer sits directly on my 4" thick concrete floor and after a couple years I have seen no issues.
  19. I would definitely be interested. Maybe I could load up the hammer on the trailer and bring it down for the weekend I have a neighbor that owes me a favor for doing a welding job and I'm sure I can get him to load it for me with his skidsteer. If you do a smelt I have hundreds of pounds of iron sand.
  20. My 88 lb self contained hammer has a footprint of 2 foot X 4 foot 3 inches.
  21. Black bear forge and Joey Vandersteeg talk about what cameras they use. Joey Vandersteeg uses all kinds of filters on his camera and he has some incredible footage of forge welding wrought iron.
  22. Thank you Alan once again. I agree with Emiliano the wealth of knowledge contained within thee is incredible!!!
  23. This is my plan to "re-cut" the dovetail. This is a 9 inch grinder with a 6 inch cut off wheel. I will have to order 9 inch cut off wheels for it.
  24. @Alan Longmirehow thick of a face plate would have been on an anvil like this? And approximately an age range maybe? The weld line for the face plate is nonexistent. Emiliano Carrillo bought it and I was just trying to gather a little info about it for him.
  25. Here is the newest builds. The longer barreled upper is a .300 blackout whith a 9 inch barrel. The shorter one is a 5.56/.223 7.5 inch barrel. The both use the same bolt carrier group and lower. So all I have to do is pop out 2 pins change out the BCG and charging handle and put the other upper back on the lower and push the 2 pins back in. All can be done in under a minute. This is the 5.56 right at dusk.
