  2. Over the next few months I will be posting numerous items from my shop as I get them ready to sell. I am beginning with a coal forge set-up. The hand crank blower doesn't seem to have a maker name on it but it runs well. The fire pot is a Centaur forge with a dump gate and clinker breaker and has no cracks. The side-draft hood was fabbed by me from 11 GA sheet and I made the table as well. I'm selling this as a whole for $450.00 local pick up no shipping in Knoxville TN . Please contact me privately to purchase.
  3. All in excellent condition, I am selling these for a fellow smith. All prices are negotiable please send me a private message if you're interested These remain available Jewelry Fundamentals hard cover by Tim McCreight $15.00 Damascus Steel hard cover by Manfred Sachse $125.00
  4. Big thanks to you and Matt for putting up with the shop invasion WOW 10 YEARS!! It will be great to see everyone again.
  5. Thanks guys, I'm just trying to determine if it's due to aging belts or the area where the belt first crosses onto the platen that's causing it. Jesus I just ordered one to replace mine if everything goes OK I will send you the information.
  6. I've been running a B3 for a number of years now but after a move the ceramic platen liner broke off with the platen off the arm. I've had two belts come apart at running speed. I got bitten by the 36 grit thankfully now too badly. Here's my question do you guys run your platen slightly forward of the guild rollers or behind? I just can't remember. Thanks in advance, Denis
  7. My friends it is with a heavy heart that I let you know that Phyllis Claiborne passed away this morning. Ron is currently under treatment for pneumonia and hope to be back home on a day or two. I will post any information about the arrangements as soon as I hear.
  8. As the happy owner of one of his early anvils I would recommend it to anyone who has forged a blade on a London pattern.

  16. Thanks for sharing Alan. Now I know who my (paid) tour guide needs to be!
  17. Thanks for the post Alan. As of this Friday his place will be just a short hop from mine.
  18. Sorry indeed Alan you know I could always kidnap you at spear point as I go through Thursday! It seems as though old man winter may give us a little love this year... but I don't wanna speak too soon. Great idea about bringing your own high capacity eating utensils Jesus! Be careful folks Sam lives by the puppy theory. That is any attention is good attention. You really canna abuse him. Cheers, see you soon
  19. Great post production there Chris. Sorry I missed your earlier post regarding the charging buckets. I'll be making another set soon and will PM you a quote.
  20. Dave, This will be a project I want to see progress, good choice. Any of the few actual artifacts I've gotten to see but not handle sadly are dead straight from pommel nut to point. That is, as far as I could tell. Based on my somewhat limited experience the caveat for this type of blade is that quenching a single edged and fullered on one side blade can make it want to drop the point if vertically quenched in oil unless you happen to be Jesvs H. Or maybe at best do something else a bit crazy as the shape is so different from side to side. That being said I would do an image search for Vince Evans since he has done a lot of them and to my knowledge can come as close to any for historical dimensions. Good luck. Denis
