    Perusing eBay and I saw these

    I found the air hose he appears to be using on the Home Depot sight. It does not say anything about it being approved for propane either. Product Overview The light weight of this polyurethane hose makes it ideal for applications where dragging a heavy hose is an issue like roofing. The smooth, non-marring finish also makes it ideal for indoor trim work where scratching surfaces could create damage. Poly hose has very good cold weather flexibility. Bend restrictors reduce kinking and increase the life of the hose. End fittings are field repairable, so with a knife and two wrenches a quick repair can be made to the hose if damaged. 300 psi Work Pressure. 100 ft. long with 1/4 in. NPT end fittings. 4 Year Warranty. 1/4 in. male NPT field-repairable fittings 300 psi working pressure Smooth finish does not mar surfaces Light weight for less user fatigue Very good cold weather flexibility Resists kinking under pressure Ideal for roofing, flooring, and indoor jobs Call 1-888-HD-HUSKY or visit HuskyTools.com for customer service and support

    I don't know of any ceramic fiber blanket that doesn't need to be sealed. Ceramic Wool Insulation, Safety Alert ---> click here
  3. It looks like long mixing tubes and what kind of hose is this?
  4. Nice score. I suggest getting some anchor seal or aluminum roofing paint on the ends to keep the checking in check.

    Insulating Fire Brick Health/Safety

    Is firebrick that much less friable? I'd be interested to see studies on this. Yes, I always wear a mask when cutting or machining it. I have pieces of 2600 degree rated firebrick that have broken apart quite easily and have abraded on the steel angle iron entrance of my forge. I was informed by a friend last night that he saw dust emanating from outside my forge. It was a certain light condition where the outdoor shop was mostly dark, but the single light was partly silhouetted by a large black object (his coal forge chimney) where we were able to see particles in the air.
  6. I understand many people use firebrick for doors of their forge. What makes it more safe than rigidized ceramic fiber blanket though? I ask this because I see the warning for rigidized ceramic fiber blanket regularly but haven't seen much warning for the firebrick. Firebrick abrades when it is moved, becomes suspended in the air, and is made at least in part of Crystalline Silica.
  7. There are crowds all around here so no one necessarily has the best vantage point all the time, but everyone at some point does.
  8. I am watching Mark make some sweet tools at the Combo Demo.
  9. Thanks, Thomas. It was the very rough eye that had me second guessing. I actually like that rough pitted look!
  10. The eye is not smooth like a drift has went through, in fact it is rough with a noticeable protrubance, almost in the shape of a whale. The surface has very rough texture caused by pitting or forging/scale. I would like to avoid taking a grinder to this using the spart test. Could this be wrought with a tool steel edge? This is a shipbuilders adze with no identifiable makers mark. Thanks Handle appears to be much newer but fits perfectly.
  11. I can’t even imagine how they did that. Wish I could see the whole process somehow to better understand.
  12. It followed me home many years ago. I believe this is a top tool used used for making quarry drills or bits.

    Burners 101

    Seems to be hard to find that ".026-.028" capillary tubing with .065" wall. Am I not looking in the right place or is it right in front of me?

    Is it worth it?

    Wow, those are a lot smaller than I imagined. I bet in the wrong hands they would ruthlessly smash said hands in a hurry. Thanks for sharing these.. .

    Is it worth it?

    ASO would actually be denigrating this piece of metal. I was on the outside of the dumpster and in truth it was a hydraulic breaker chisel, around 300# lifting capacity magnet that was "floating" on top of the recycling debris. All I had to do was skate it out. Not! Das, how about a picture of those heavy magnets although I feel like I could just look in the mirror to see one.
