  1. Things have been good. Kids are in a lot of sports and keeping me busy. I've popped into the forum and checked things out here and there but I didn't forge for almost 3 years. I'm slowly getting back into it. I've got 350 gallons of propane to use so lots of hot work in the future!

     

    I agree 100% on all points you made. I'm just glad there finally selling an actual anvil! I will stick with my 674lb German monster!

    1-100 is probably in % of full speed.  However, it could be in Hz (Hertz) in which case 100 would be darn near twice the rated full speed. 

    I looked it up and Namibia uses 50Hz motors so if his adjustment on the VFD is in Hz then 100 would be twice the speed.

  3. I have my VFD on my hammer set to ramp up the speed very quickly. It is at full speed in less than 2 seconds. I can see it working for controlling the speed of the hammer. The only problem I see is when I'm running the hammer all in one operation I find myself starting slow and rapidly increasing the force of the blow. That's something a VFD cant do. You basically set your speed and that's what you have until you adjust the speed on the VFD. I wouldn't want to be trying to adjust the speed while trying to hammer something home! I think if you are just drawing out stock it would be okay but if you were using top tooling I believe it would hinder the performance.

  4. The 674 lb anvil I kept I believe had an upsetting block at one point. I originally thought this was filler rod or something from when everything was forge welded. I've seen Joey Vandersteeg do that on a small anchor and some of the mini anvils he made but it was brought to my attention that it was probably the upsetting block that broke off.

  5. I got bored. This is the first thing I've forged in well over a year. This stump anvil is one of the last things I forged before my little break. I might get it out of the stump and forge weld a high carbon face on it and it might become my KITH project for this year.

    Nice deer. When you going to shoot one?

    I can't hunt anymore so my brother hunts and I process. I processed 11 last season.

    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. 20211214_203107.jpg

    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.
