  1. Best advice. I my experience there are two types of people those with common sense and the scum. The common-sense people you will always find a compromise, you both bend a little and it works out. The scum they don’t care, they just see their side and will always find something to complain. You could plant trees and they will complain about the lack of sunlight you cut them down they will complain about not having shade.

    First tongs

    What? First thing you made is a pair of tongs and they look that good? I’ll see myself out. I don’t know what you do for a living but it better be blacksmithing in the future.
  3. This is an interesting thread. What is the “anvil” in that last picture used for, it looks like it has a specific purpose. Bottom right corner on the stump.
  4. Wow, that is excellent. After it gets some patina on it, it will look like it was always there.
  5. You got me thinking, so as I was making some tools today I made a hanger from some scrap pieces. It is riveted, with only the horizontal bar welded. I punched a squer hole and welded it fom the inside. Not exactly what you had in mind, but as I said it got me thinking.
  6. Well I made links from some old rusty nails that looked about the right size and managed to close them cold. But I sure wish I found smaller ones because it was a pain in the butt to close it cold.
  7. Thanks for the advice guys, good advice. The stainless shackles are really an eyesore.
  8. Walking by it every day made me like it more and more. The old cracked wood makes it feel as it has been there for years. So I made a full brace and cutout the silhouette.
  9. I've made a sign hanger for my shop and sign. The sign is temporary till I come up with something better, just wanted something to hang. Please post your signs and hangers also.
  10. Not doing much work, so here is my shop. On the left side is an unfinished forge chimney and I have a vice outside for cutting long stock or if I must do a lot of grinding. The doors are made so I can have them opened but the dogs can't get inside. On the right side is my fine bench, where I can sit and write, draw, do leather work, assemble fine things. On the left side is my crude bench, where I can weld and grind and pound on, it is higher so I can stand and work. The small shop has its limitations on the size of things I can make but on the other hand everything is right there, it is cozy
