  1. Craig, that W2 looks as good as when I shipped it to you. I was going to take the 1.25" square, but JM was quicker. I will take the 15N20. PM me your paypal addy. Thanks my friend.
  2. Looks good to me, Daniel. Hittin really hard too, smooth and good control. The noise you are hearing might be the ram rocking back and forth in the guide.
  3. I use a lot of .040" .050" ,065" 6al4v. Been a while, but the last I bought was around $10 for a 12"x12" sheet. What do you have in these thicknesses or close? Sheet size and price...
  4. Change to a mix of 1084/15N20 and most of your troubles will go away. Get some Parks 50 quench oil if you stick with the 1095 mix.
  5. Craig, I'm surprised to see ya selling the Little Giant old buddy... Hope you are well.
  6. Nice lookin hammer. I wouldn't call a Murray an upgrade over a little Giant, but still a good ahhmer.
  7. Good lookin hammer! But like Dave, I'd want to know why it's not covered in oil & grease.
  8. Karl, I actually watched Darryl Meier do it at the Metal Museum back in the late 90s'. He welded at a very low heat too. I've done a lot of dry welding over the years, but mostly with closed welds. Hard to stop using flux with open welds, but I might revist this...
  9. Not L6, but 15N20. Neither steel is good for hamon, but both can show one.
  10. Peter, did you get my email reply? If you don't want new dies from Sid, he probably has used ones. Worth a try.
  11. Grape seed oil is better for your health and much more expensive than canola. So use the grape seed in the kitchen and the canola in the shop.
  12. One must find the balance between science and art. There is mis-information on both sides. Do what works best for you and carry on.
  13. Well the body of that mousehole is chunkier than the Peter Wrights we are comparing it to. So it could be a big-un.
