  1. Hi, I found an old gimlet which I could use but it needs some edging. It isn't as sharp as it should be. But I have no clue how to do it so please help me. It looks like that:
  2. Very nice pictures ...Amazing building. I'm gonna build something similar :D
  3. Hi, I was just reading, and thinking and got a question. So I'm trying to make my "THE Forge Weld" and it hasn't happened yet. I burn simple Polish coal which is nice hot but very dirty. It has big flames and a lot of clinker, but in other cases it doen't matter. So the question is: Can charcoal make forge welding easier? I mean it's clean and hot as well as coal or coke. I can get some left over charcoal from the local baker. It isn't much but enough for some weld weekly. Thanks,
  4. ooh! Nice setup.. I'd like to Ctrl+C Ctrl+V for me. I like the contrast between black-brown and polished metal on your hammers and the anvil is so shining I wouldn't dare to touch with dirty hands. It must catch people's eyes.
  5. Here is the link without the smile: YouTube - blacksmith-homemade anvil and swage Hope this will help.
  6. Good job, very nice pieces They will surely work fine.
  7. Locky, that is a very detailed description of your firepot, I think the best I've ever seen. You must have had a lot of work with it. If I build a new forge I will surely make this firepot for it. Thank you very much!
  8. I'm not a competent, but I don't think it is wrought iron... If it brakes for you it brakes for the blacksmith in the past... It can be cast iron maybe... Try forging it at a higher temperature, and maybe it won't brake... I hope i've said something correct and useful. :)
  9. Pretty nice. I think I will make something similar... i can imagine a hanger in the same style. thanks
  10. That's fantastic! So lifelike... I can say this is art. thanks.
  11. Very nice, it looks sharp :)
  12. Cats like good blacksmith coal... :D
