  1. You should ask the client what its use is for, if its a bottom tool to be struck you may need to change your heat treatment.
  2. I saw a forge welding demo where an onlooker threw a penny in the forge to mess with the demonstrator, the demonstrator was peaved but continued his demo and on first try successfully forge welded a bunch of electrician's pliers, wire strippers together to make a knife for a retired electrician. I know this because the demo was in my brick forge at a hammer-in I hosted. The demonstrator who did the forge welding said it's not the penny that causes problems, it's the fire management for forge welding that counts for a successful weld. I saw, so therefore I believe.

    Not my Craigslist add with my photos

    I just don't understand why they would not have posted pics of the machine that they were actually selling, even if somewhat incomplete, the old sales ads are easily found to show what they are.

    Not my Craigslist add with my photos

    Kinda funny cause it's still on my property and I wouldn't sell it for 3X that much.
  7. What would you do, if you happened upon a Craigslist add selling a blacksmithing hammer that has your before and after restoration photos and none of the sellers photos of said machine? Should I be flattered? And just let it be or what. I tried calling but no answer.

    I believe the rods I used were - MG 740 rods when resurfacing the edges of my PW, very happy with it for the last 10 years.

  10. Thomas - you are correct - just as a picture of my shop with my go to anvil that is a Peter Wright - doesn't mean my shop is In England.

    Riveted Fireplace Screen Doors

    Al - if I recall the mesh I used is #6? Most fire places have a lot smaller mesh size( more wires per inch ) this one is exceptionally bigger, hence the beefier mesh I used. Can't recall the supplier off hand, somewhere on the east coast I know. I don't buy mesh very often, so ever time I need to search for a supplier.

    Yes if you have the equipment to make one - Although machining and heat treating - it isn't bad, and it fits the first time.
