  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 14 minutes 12 seconds into this video shows the grinder I was talking about. I will get pictures of mine in a little while.
  4. 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.
  5. This video may be useful to some people interested in a little forge like this.
  6. Well if they are selling it at that price again I will be stockpiling it regardless.
  7. 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!!!
  8. Awesome. I will talk with my neighbor and have it set up to load when the time arrives!
  9. @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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. My 88 lb self contained hammer has a footprint of 2 foot X 4 foot 3 inches.
  13. 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.
  14. Thank you Alan once again. I agree with Emiliano the wealth of knowledge contained within thee is incredible!!!
  15. 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.
  16. @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.
  17. 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.
  18. So the rails arrived in good condition and they are much heavier duty than I anticipated!!! I haven't been able to take a really close look but so far so good!!!
  19. I have not bought from them. I will keep you informed on how everything arrives.
  20. The dovetail on the big 674 lber is mucked up pretty good. I am going to build a jig to mount my angle grinder to and cut a new dovetail. I ordered these to build the jig.
  21. It seems like everything is there. Definitely needs new toggle arms and I'm sure it will need new babbits poured. The good thing is there is still good customer service for these machines and I'm sure most the parts are available. If it were me I would pull the trigger.
  22. I got my anvils today. What a major pain in the butt this was. Somehow they got stuck in Chicago and they couldn't find a truck to haul them to Detroit. I ended up just having them shipped to my door for an extra $135. Pretty reasonable cost considering the weight. I will upload some pictures in a little while.
  23. Looks like the mystery anvil is 200g/440lbs. Not sure what style yet but I have a feeling it is a hornless church window anvil.
