  1. nothing wrong with a used motor just did a 2hp 3phase with vfd for less than $225 with used vfd had to drive an hour for the motor tho
  2. vice grip with the teeth polished off might save your fingers and not be to jiggy
  3. i would stay away from cheep rubber wheels last thing you need is the formula being off and it separating at speed also i had my last belt grinder for 12 years its still a fine grinder but my style of grinding has changed and i wanted to go to a 72 belt so really whats the cost of a good wheel over that kind of time frame and whats the resale on it if you get out of it later?
  4. i have a ames type been pretty happy with it but yes if the penitrator brakes ill toss it and buy a wilson bench top cheeper in the long run
  5. kmg im 90% happy with the purchase but im cheep and picky
  6. i use gflex and use plastic wrap to kinda push/squish the epoxy in to the cord and also remove exes from the surface only place it looks plasticy is in the crevises were it collects
  7. I wouldnt hesitate if the frame is good the rest is bonus
  8. only one i know is if your making a locking knife you need your pivot stop and lock to form a triangle even with a book or two on making folders i still sit up nights trying to get the best placement
  9. im wondering if this is the guy i was calling out on fb for profiting on mcdonalds work
  10. i find an angle grinder does a better job of removing saw dust than the plasma your mileage may vary
  11. The First home forging press was a converted log and after using it for a bit the builder decided it was easyer to make one from scratch to do what he wanted to do .......if you need easy and fast convert if you want to save a few bucks and make something thats more set up for what we do build from scratch
  12. Mig is a hot glue gun for metal but theres a lerning curve and a few things that can go wrong with the machine Stick strongest of the welds for the most part lerning curve less to go wrong with the machine Tig cleanest and most versital (ac/dc type) bigger learning curve as it can do more so more to know and plenty to go wrong between machine and settings Each one will weld the big question is what do you want to do with it when its not tacking up billets
  13. mines made from a disposable helium tank same size as a Freon tank is ok size for forge welding by hand small when using a press or power hammer next ones going to be a 30 lb propane tank so i can use the press and hammer to full advantage
