  1. Hey guys, does anyone know of a hand crank blower for sale or where I can pick one up? I live in middle Tennessee and am willing to drive some. Any help would be great.
  2. Great looking blades! Nice work with an angle grinder
  3. Hey guys,I know that many in the forum apply beeswax to finished pieces. My question is how is it applied? Is it brushed on? Do you melt the wax and put the piece in it? Do you rub it on when the piece still has some heat to it? Any help would be great.
  4. Nice looking thrower! I like the rough look
  5. I'm trying to make a hot punch. I made one out of a piece of half inch rebar. How does the forum temper and heat treat them? The first time I tried to use it the point deformed. Any advice would be great.
  6. Yeah, the store bought came with the planter but I've made a few.
  7. Thanks, I can't believe it didn't dawn on me to angle it up. I'll give it a shot
  8. Thanks Thomas. Do you have a diagram or a picture so I could better understand what your saying? It sounds like it would be a really good idea
  9. It's a small plant, I figured it wouldn't hold anything with alot of weight. Thanks
  10. Hey guys, Is it possible to make a corkscrew end for my wall hooks? I have a guy wanting a couple to hold laterns but he wants to screw them into a tree but take them back out when he's done. Do I have to do a corkscrew or can I make something else that's removable? Any advice or design tips would be great.

  12. I just posted the pic above. How do I resize it, it's way too big!
  13. Hey guys, Here's another hook I made for my wife's plants. I made it from 1/4" round bar. Let me know what you think.
  14. I'm starving now, thanks alot guys
  15. Where do you get the linseed oil? Do you have to order it or can you buy it retail?
  16. Holy cow that's a sweet looking blade.
  17. Hey guys, I have a question. What kind of oil do you put on the finished product to keep it corrosion resistant without painting it. I made a hook over the weekend and put a light coat of gun oil on it. It rained last night and you guessed it....it has rusted and looks like hell. What does the forum use and where can I get it? I want that steel look and I don't want to cover it up with paint. Any help and advice would be appreciated.
  18. Great looking piece, very clean looking
