thank you John, I do appreciate your reply !
this forum used to be great for stuff like this.......maybe that'll get a reply
Posted January 16, 2017
I've come across a few topics and threads that have a list of required parts for a press build and the odd one where press drawings were at one time posted but since deleted.......
Im not set on any press in particular yet, many designs out there, more less looking for dimensions and measurements of already ones built if available.....
maybe someone has kept there drawings or sketches from their build and wouldnt mind posting......thx

access to this one as well.....
Thanks TD for your reply.....
3450 5HP is what I have in the boneyard where I'd probably go 16GPM but also I have access to a 1725 5HP where I have read that a 22GPM would be better suited....not as noisy, still considering options , thanks for your reply...

worth a second reply , really like this knife , may have to steel a portion of your idea.......
look like it'll work just fine , good job, nice thing about knife making is your options are endless and so are designs...........
you'll always get opinions , to wide to big to fat to small to long to short........so just make what you like and what feels good to you.....forge on ! good work !

I'm definitely on board with keeping both , make beautiful things on them, sell them , there's your money back and you still have 2 awesome anvils........you'll be extremely hard pressed to find them again , both in great shape , I keep telling myself that every anvil has its own purpose , I need to maybe stop thinking that way........running out of room
my recent acquisition a 164lb Mouse......didn't need it but I definitely had to have it !!

I found one at a 'ol maker's garage sale..........bought it for $50 , love it
to use a jig or not doesn't make you a better or less a knifemaker, I do both , its an aid like a 2x72 grinder or an digital oven or a mill or.........
love the results , once set up made a dozen of these in about 1/2 hour........

Thanks Kozzy ,
apprciate your reply
thanks Koz / Arf
was hoping for a bit more feedback from anyone who may have one similar, I'll try another forum........
apologize in advance if this is in the wrong section....
I have seen a few similar rolling mills posted here and there,..... while seeking a press I came across this the other day
so, wondering from the experts if this would be suitable......
frwd/reverse , approx 1-1/2'' height travel ( may be able to increase) will allow 3-1/2'' wide billet , 110V Baldor power 3/4 HP 1725 rpm
I know a very vague question but any idea what the value of this may be ? I have no idea......any info / input appreciated

Good for you , great little anvil
Posted April 22, 2016
