  1. I never would have thought to try, thanks again Geoff for some very useful information.
  2. It always means more when it was made for you instead of bought for you. I think he will like it!
  3. I upset some times when forging a drop point hunter or something similar to get some depth into the belly of the blade but if the stock has been drawn too thin it just bends. And it is something that needs to be done in a coal forge. A propane forge tends to heat the whole workpiece where a coal forge you can heat up sections of the blade.
  4. I've tried to find a video of someone using a set of these but i have had no luck.
  5. http://wheretofindrocks.com/collecting-copper-in-michigan/ Here is a link for a how to find copper in the upper peninsula. They have copper mine tours up there for anyone interested. The largest copper boulder found in the UP is 3,708 known as the Ontonagon boulder. There's a cool story that goes with it too. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ontonagon_Boulder
  6. Im about 7 miles from the silver lake sand dunes. Big tourist attraction but when you live here its just a big sand pit lol. The only thing i like about the dunes is hunting. I cant wait to go to north manitou. I've been planning for a few years and now this next summer im going to explore the island and camp for a couple days to make sure when i do go i am fully prepared for any kind of scenario i can think of. But i know when i get there i will have forgotten something! lol. Another trip i am planning and taking the kids with is going to the UP (upper peninsula) in search of copper nuggets i
  7. Thank you all for the responses i will look around for some of these items and give this kydex a shot.
  8. North Manitou island is awesome also. Next year i am heading to North Manitou Island for their annual deer hunt. 10 day hunt with no way back to the mainland. You have to bring everything you will need for the 10 days and you are limited to a 1 or 2 wheel hand cart. No bag limit and the deer you shoot doesn't affect your tags on the mainland. Do you live in michigan?
  9. Something like a pexto plate mounted in a bench?
  10. Picked these up at auction for $12 the picture doesn't do them justice. These things are huge!!!
  11. I think I have a few of these laying around the house. I know I have the tree stand mat but that's being used in the tree stand at the the moment
  12. I was thinking it looked like the hood of a truck.
  13. We also did a lot of grinding on titanium and the dust from titanium is a lot more combustible than steel so they wanted the downdraft table because it sucked all the dust into a water basin under the table and has its own self contained dust collection system.
  14. I have a $150 3m full face mask and i can still smell some of the grinding. I worked at a shop that had a down draft table like these https://maxcleanair.com/collections/downdraft-tables We didn't even need to wear masks but i still did. The owners son didn't though. I guess he trusted his life and health in a $10,000 table.
  15. Im using the vulcan now and i have a 112lb mouse hole that is missing the heal and kinda beat up and a 175 lb vulcan that is really beat up but i am saving for a Nimba gladiator 450lb.
  16. After a couple months of using could you give us an update or short review on what you think of the anvil and its features.
  17. I started with a 40lb section of rail that wasn't mounted properly and was about 10 inches too low. With major lower back problems i was to the point of just quitting until i found this forum and found some things that Geoff Keyes was talking about how to use a rail properly and it helped a lot. Then a real good friend of mine gave me a mint condition 100lb vulcan that i absolutely love. Even though vulcans get a bad reputation if they are treated properly and not abused they are fully capable of lasting a very long time. As for the Kanca it is definitely a lifetime anvil.
  18. Awesome!!! You will notice the difference the first time you hammer hot steel on it.
  19. So after paying my bills for the month i had a little extra money for some kydex kits but im kinda short on getting the thermoforming foam. Has anyone made a press using a different foam with a ceramic fiber blanket as a heat barrier. I could probably come up with some more money but as of now im trying to figure it out without it. Any help would be appreciated.
  20. I haven't done one yet because I also don't see a reason for one but i will be following this to see what is said about the topic.
  21. I frequent the library quite often. I know a lot of people think they can find everything on the internet which blows my mind on how much bull s?&t there is on the internet. But my local library's don't have it available. I haven't looked it up to buy bit it is something i want to get my hands on someday It always drives me nuts when people call me Germy Blaahm
