  2. I've got all my material except 1 ingredient, time!
  3. Congrats on PH Daniel !! This should make pounding out those blades little easier.
  4. DSW I did make the nails and you are correct there are 2 nails holding it in studs. I knew the application would be to hold only a shallow shelf and few light pictures so I'm not worried about it falling due to weight. The nails secured it quite we'll to the studs. Thanks for the compliments.
  5. Sorry for the upside down pics. It must be my I phone.
  6. I spent about 6 hours making four of these brackets and then making the shelves from some 8/4 hickory I have. The wife is happy she finally got her shelves for the stair case.
  7. [quote name="Frosty" post="402945" timestamp=" . Your strikers wont be back again either. Frosty The Lucky.
  8. I would try forklift repair shops. We have a few places here in the Charlotte area that have a fairly large piles of scap tines behind there shops.
  9. Vaughn OWWM was my original money pit I love the old Milwaukee Delta tools my shop is full with working machines that are begging for a restore. Forging has taken my interest for the last couple of years (only 1 woodworking project complete)
  10. About 6 mo ago I bought this 250# Fisher off a guy on craigslist for $550. My uncle in New York drove down to Meadville, Pa to pick it up and I've been patiently waiting ever since. So my uncle came down to NC for Easter and brought my anvil along with some large pieces of sugar maple. I spent about a hour with the braided wire cup and some linseed oil and ended up with a like new anvil! I have even working on a 170#er and thought that was a large anvil, the mass this anvil has is beyond what I thought it would be. I don't think this thing was ever used . Enjoy the pics
  11. It would work. All you are doing is heating the wood to the point that it gives off gases. Not sure how economical it woud be. I get mine going with sticks from the woods( free).
  12. Gergely, it's 24" I have not used the hood yet. I built the forge about 1.5 years ago and was using a side draft on it. I'm changing fuels and position in the shop so it bought the hood was necessary. I going to be using a 10" spiral pipe that I use do my side draft if it doesn't pull good ill bump it up to 12"
  13. So I decided to move my shop around after using it for about 1.5 years and seeing where I needed some improvements. I decided to build a full hood because I will be using my homemade pine charcoal instead of coal and I needed to shield the inside of the barn from the sparks that the charcoal generates. My son helped me get it tack welded together and set it up for a test fit. Here are a couple of pics.
