  2. Survey : Budden > Wright > Norris

    LOL! The Fisher, wire brush and head&shoulders, everything will be fine ! For the HB, I didn't see it «live» but I don't think there is some repair on it... anyway, my friend will use it for his students,... better beat that one than his good one. The price was very good for both....

    There is no problem. Jim Batson wrote the book how to make a forging press. You can find it on the web. For the specs, numbers are always more pessimistic than reality. I would not go with a 1hp or 2hp engine ... but a 3hp would be enough for my pump, I would bet a $ 2 there on it ... as for the Pats at Superbowl 2018. LOL !!!

    jtknives - I have the Jim Batson book, and a 3hp would be suffisant for my setup. My first forging press was a converted artisanal log splitter and I have got great results (1.5hp and power steering pump). I'm very excited to see that one on duty. Thanks for the maths !
  12. I love the title of the video «An exercise of stubbornness» ! LOL ! Great job , really !
