    Anyone Know Wood Tools?

    Greetings Toolgal, My guess would be a hole centering devise . If you had 2 boards one with a large hole and the adjoining board with the smaller hole you could index the parts so other holes could be drilled and the parts properly indexed. Just this ol boys 2c Forge on and make beautiful things Jim

    Reverse twist question

    Greetings Lyuv, As Glenn and Basher pointed out local heat control . Just heat the bar than cool the parts that you don’t want to twist by dribbling water on it and it will work just fine . Done it thousands of times. Forge on and make beautiful things Jim

    Enderes Tool Co Anvil

    Greetings Jamal’s, Had one and sold it for to Mr Postman. For hi collection He said that Enderes did not make anvils larger than 12 pounds. Mine was probably a prototype. As I remember the face was soft and dented easily. Best check rebound and hardness. Forge on and make beautiful things Jim
  6. Greetings Dave, What I suggested would allow both hands to be free... Read it again .. Ya can pm me . Forge on and make beautiful things Jim
  7. Greetings Dave, My set ups are different. If you are going to use the HF planishing hammer I would first suggest an in line foot control air switch. To stop the chisels from turning I would make a steady hold for vise grip and use the leather to hold the chisel from turning. You can grind the chisel square under the leather contact point and for sure it won’t rotate. I hope this helps . Forge on and make beautiful things Jim
  8. Greetings Dave, Yep me again... I did a lot of chase and repousse work .. I designed a special machine that works great. The air hammer is rigid mounted but the work table is hydraulic and movable by the foot pedal. I can control the chisel depth and air hammer speed at the same time.. The big wheel adjust the table up and down 6 inches and the foot pedal dual control 1/2 inch. I have also a old air hammer part set up to use chisels in my fly press that accepts air chisels. Lots of tools for different applications. The nice part is adjustable depth for different base media. Forge on and make beautiful things Jim

    Super sucker without welding?

    Greetings Nick. A few small leaks would not be a problem at all . The volume of hot gasses going up creates a vacuum that would suck air in rather than exhaust out.. Another seam for sheet metal is called a drive . Google it.. HAVE FUN AND GOOD LUCK Forge on and make beautiful things Jim
  12. Greetings SLS, Yet another way to make a bending tool.. This way you just make the adjustments pinching the tool in the vise. Been using it for years. Easy to make.. Forge on and make beautiful things Jim

    Forging candlesticks with square bar

    Greetings Eophex, Another alternative to a cone is a flat spiral. Pictures below are 1/2 square bar 24 inches long no welds or interruptions . I did this one as a challenge but you get the idea on the spiral. Have fun . Forge on and make beautiful things Jim
