  1. mystery to me tool

    Yes the brighter bolt is a replacement. The square piece it is holding has a small locator pin to stop rotation. I think a saw set would need an indention for the "set"? This tool may remain a mystery tool.......Thanks Guys Dave
  2. Any clues on this tool? There are no identifying marks on it. It is some kind of hand anvil, I guess. The top swinging piece does have a bit of mushrooming from being hammered. It has been through the local coffee shop and shown to some old geezers. But still lacks a positive ID.
  3. Steve, are going this year? I had to miss The IBA conference. Dave
  4. With large parts I like to pressure wash, blow dry and spritz or brush on phosphoric acid. Just about anything that will attract a magnet that will fit in the tank and conduct electricity. Sheet metal works good for large surface area, but will turn to Swiss cheese pretty quick.
  5. That is a good process to clean stuff. If you have any questions let me know. The surface area of your sacrificial electrodes has a lot to do with how often they will need cleaned. Enjoy.... Life is Good Dave
  6. Just another newbie from Ohio

    Thomas...we better get an IFI group photo this year, don't ya think? Dave
  7. OZ roll call

    Pappy, good to see you still have the screen in the hood scoop. I had more than one experience with driving threw a swarm of bees and no screen....sure got interesting for a bit, lol. Mine was a 50. Loved those cab corner windows, but the enclosed driveshaft led to his demise, dang-it. Speaking of trees...does yer truck have 3 on the tree or 4 on the floor? sorry for the highjack Dave
  8. Show me your shop!

    AND THERE YA GO......a perceived issue is now a non issue...enjoy yer new shop. Dave
  9. Show me your shop!

    johnytait, very nice.....only thing that looks questionable to me is, your forge. Sitting in a corner like that, how long of a bar can you heat in the middle? May not be an issue at all for the work you do. Over all I envy you. Dave
  10. What Would Your Anvil Say?

    Thanks Mc......I had another one about the horn. But it had a vowel on the end and I didn't want to get a warning form the admin.
  11. What Would Your Anvil Say?

    I'm stumped ..........
  12. What did you do in the shop today?

    looks like you nailed it.....
  13. I'm a dad!

    Congrats Das, you all make a beautiful family. Don't worry, in a few months you will once again get a full nights sleep.......
  14. What did you do in the shop today?

    If the water is hot, why do you have to heat it?
  15. Changing wheels on a bench grinder

    was it a left-handed thread?
