    Pig roasting spit

    I have been commissioned to make a pig roasting spit for a friend. We have settled on a height but I am unsure about the length for the spit and size of materiel. He said that he only wants to roast a pig about 50 lb, though I suspect that this may change in the future. My questions to anyone who has experience making or using a spit like this are, would 3 ft between uprights be sufficient, and would 1/2 in. stock be strong enough. Thanks in advance.

    It followed me home

    Das, that stuff gives me nightmares.I worked in an onion ring factory. the 2nd worst thing I had to do was change the belts on the friers in the middle of a shift, above 300 gal. of 360deg.f oil. The worst was fixing the belt in the flash freezer at -40 deg f.

    Hand Crank blowers

    When do you finally throw scraps away

    The very reason I don't throw anything out. I have thrown thinks out after 10 years and needed it the next day.

    Clay mixed with sand works great, I wish mine looked this good.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Crazy "Sculpture" idea?

    It would have to be a block anvil the same weight as the hammers.
