  1. Small cable damascus knife

    Das, I thought about cleaning the handle but decided not to on this one. Actually there are a couple of inclusions in the blade. I'm not to worried about it on this one as it will not get much use. I was just happy that I was able to get it to weld this good. I have a lot of cable in 1/2" and 1" to practice with.

    Thank you.
  3. Small cable damascus knife

    A small knife that started out as 1/2 in. wire rope. This was my first successful forge weld and only my second attempt at forge welding. Etched in hot vinegar for 30 min.
  4. Where to get square/round stock

    OUCH! I don't think 20 ft in 4 ft lengths would cost that much at Lowes. If I remember iwill check when I am there tomorrow.
  5. Where to get square/round stock

    At my "local" steel supplier 2 hour drive 1 way I can get 20' 1/2" round a36 hot rolled for about $7. 1018 cold rolled is about $12 in the same size, cut 1 time If I need it cut more it is $1 a cut. This is the only new steel supplier in at least 4 countys. About all the big box stores sell a36 in shorter pieces but you pay dearly for it.
  6. What can you make from a spanner?

  7. What can you make from a spanner?

    An ax made from a 1 inch combination wrench (spanner), 12 inches long.
  8. Crazy "Sculpture" idea?

    It would have to be a block anvil the same weight as the hammers.
  9. Blacksmithing gems and pearls

    Punches and chisels can be turned into..........punches and chisels! John McPherson I love this one, so true.
  10. What can you make from a spanner?

    I have made some little battle axes out of them. They are pretty c=good sellers. The only pic I have won't load, when I finish the one I am working on I will post a pic.
  11. It followed me home

    Mine is missing the Quill lock bolt, but it is on the list to buy/make!

    Your welcome, you could probably find one on the lathe also. The one on the drill press has all the adjustments and lubrication points listed. It is nice to have a piece of equipment made to be repaired instead of thrown away.

    But yours is purdyer, and you have the belt guard. You can download the original owners manual in PDF, just google the model #.
  14. It followed me home

    Went to a friends house this weekend and was looking at an old drill press he had is his garage. He asked will it fit in your truck, it needs a motor. When I got it home I found that the motor was full of dirt dauber wasp nests. Took the motor apart, cleaned it out and it runs great! It is missing the Quill locking clamp bolt and the spindle needs tightened but that in minor.
  15. Guillotine toole you should have one DIY for under $30.

    I made one last winter, I haven't used it much but when I do it is THE tool for the job. I am using 3" wide by 1/2" brush hog blades for the dies. I still have 3 left, need to make more dies so I can use it more. I put spacers on the top cross piece so I could make 3/4" fuller dies. I will have to get pics and post them.
