Kenon Rain. Posted February 7, 2010 Share Posted February 7, 2010 (edited) I was going through some pictures on my computer and ran across these.. and wanted to share this is a little wrought iron head I made for my fathers birthday along with a simple knife.. No pictures of the knife, but yeah.. I found the wrought rotting under 3 feet of soil in our backyard.. cool stuff This was how i asked my girlfriend to prom a year or so ago.. sort of a spur of the moment idea, and was done in the highschool shop with a plasma cutter I picked the flower on the way to her house.. worked out well though These are a couple of pendants I made for her and her twin sister, they're low layer damascus etched in ferric.. and some of my first actually.. There were no weld flaws, which I was pretty stoked about all carved freeform on my contact wheel of the following ghetto grinder.. This is the ghetto grinder mach 2.. the first one died epically when I in a rage smashed the motor with a beast pair of tongs.. turns out I hit a pretty key part of the motor.. :/ anyway.. its scrap wood, drive wheel I made, bearings I had bought for a legit grinder build, and a motor I found outside.. I bought the contact wheel and belts.. but welded up the tensioner, and track adjustment out of some scrap steel.. It works ok.. better than nothing.. I made it because I was in the middle of a commision when my other died :/ This is my thumb while building ghetto grinder mach 2.. turns out even someone who uses a hammer every day can smash their fingers driving a nail.. I'm an idiot.. This is a charcoal retort I was doing for a steel run.. wasn't worth it in the long run, but was interesting, and the charcoal it made was cool This is the resulting simple steel reduction of scrap.. never doing it indoors again.. worked well though, turned my scrap wrought I found burried into a carbon bloom and here's the resulting bloom, pretty solid too, its about the size of a fist and just a simple blade I had made and ready for heat treatment.. I tried a water quench, and messed up.. I cant remember how but I know it was dumb.. heard the tink, and got angry.. so, there arn't a whole lot of peices left.. in fact I think a few of them may be in the above bloom, or in its brothers... thanks for looking Edited February 7, 2010 by Kenon Rain Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
