  1. Thanks guys. tobacco container it is.
  2. I've seen this can around before. I'm sure it was my great grandfathers, but not positive. Any idea on when and a what it was used for? Only writing on it is 'patent applied' stamped on the bottom. Mom had it stashed in a corner and came across it again.
  3. Would it be something a steel mill may still have in circulation? Maybe a call or two to maintenance might get you a lucky break
  4. Thanks for the quick help. She's living in Kelowna, lots of things grow well in the Okanagan
  5. We stopped at the mother in laws new rental place and there was an interesting tree out back. First though was osage orange with the round seed balls. But a quick google kinda says it's something else. Unfortunately no new leaves just yet. Does anyone know off hand what it might be. Sorta had my hopes up it was osage and I could steal a few pieces for bow wood
  6. Made no claims to being a great knife. Just found the process rather interesting
  7. I knew aluminum was forgeable, but forge welding not so much, interesting video just the same
  8. somewhere on the bladesmith forums there are a few tools guys have come up with
  9. Whats your heat source. May need a few rotations in the forge. If one side is a little hotter, deeper than the other it moves easier. guess the other thing might be are you moving around the anvil while striking? Tend to pull or push a little on the strike and by moving around it tends to average out
  10. Cool little vise, almost looks like a lock washer on the screw
  11. I'm thinking keep the profiles that are there for now and if you need something different it's easy to modify later. Depending on how nicked or dinged the faces are they may or may not need a little cleanup. My hammer that is similar has one face slightly rounded, think the face of a pocket watch and the other is flat with nicely radiused corners for making tapers nice and flat.
  12. Please do post more. Always interesting to see just whats out there
  13. heres a link to a similar tool.
  14. makes me think of a wire fence splicing tool. just not sure where or when I may have seen something similar.
