  1. I have upgraded and have an old Buffalo brand coal fired forge with hand blower for sale. There are also two sets of tongs to go with it. Fully operational. Good condition all round. Pic's available by email on request. Please send requests for pics to [email protected] Chasing $450 for it. Cheers Steve
  2. I had a look at a diesel fired forge the other day that is for sale in Bassendean W.A. It was too big for my use but someone here might have a use for it. It is located at a business called West Coast suspensions 188 Railway Pde, Bassendean. Contact is John on 9378 2133. They will take $400 for it which is a good price I think. I have some pics of it if that is of any help. Just send an email to me and I will forward the pics. [email protected] Cheers Steve
  3. I would love to see a jackhammer chisel bit properly sharpened and hardened with my own 2 eyes instead of watching it on youtube etc. Any ideas on who might have some time to show me, I can supply the chisel bit from a box full that I have. I am located south of Perth but will travel anywhere to cop a look if possible. Cheers Steve
  4. Thanks for the info, I will give them a try this week. Cheers Steve
  5. Just picked up my first forge today. It is a Buffalo brand with a hand blower and in pretty good condition. I will be using it to harden jackhammer chisels. What is the best fuel to use and where in Perth can I get it from. Thanks chaps..:)
  6. Thanks Brian, I will give him a call when I get the chance. Cheers Steve
  7. Hi guys Chasing a gas fired forge in Western Australia. Large enough to heat jackhammer chisels etc. Might have some work available also for someone that is interested in re-pointing these jackhammer bits etc. Drop me a line or give me a call Cheers Steve 0408697790
  8. Hi guys.... I have been asked by a mate at a hire company to re-shapen and harden all of their jackhammer bits and chisels. I did a few using a big bench grinder and then heated them to cherry red and quenched them in oil and finally gave them a buff to remove the soot from the quenching process........so far so good......... Am I on the right track???, I do not seem to be able to find any info anywhere and the correct way to do these things, can anyone here help point me in the right direction?? Cheers Steve
