  1. It followed me home

    Hi journey, That cutter tool looks amazing, never seen anything like it before. You did a good thing when overpaid, my opinion, even better as it went for a good case. That sure looks like a copper hammer, I use a 6 lbs bronze one when drifting axes - no worries about mushrooming the drift or chipping away. Don't forget that copper is still harder then hot iron, so don't try to use it when straightening twisted bars. Wood or raw hide mallet is the go when doing that. Das - unbelievable! Sure there gonna be lots of fun! Can you tell what's that carriege/wagon thing on the top? Bests: Gergely
  2. I use a 32 mm /1 1/4" dia piece of steel to test the hole dia with. (Before forging in the tab/tongue.) It works for me. Bests: Gergely

    Wow! Not bad! May want to use a power hammer instead in these days... ? Bests: Gergely
  4. Norton 6DB weight info

    Thank you! With Wpearson's help I figured the two model types have to be the same (same-ish at least). So I went with the 355kg when I had to tell its weight to the courier company. By the end of this week that baby should arrive from England to Hungary. Bests: Gergely

  6. It followed me home

    JHCC: can you tell us how good is that Art Deco book? I was watching it for a while on the net, but didn't buy it. Could use some trustable opinion on the topic This hasn't yet followed me home, but I MUST brag, ehem, share... I'm so happy!! Won on an auction, yippee! Thank you Wpearson and JoelOF for your help - couldn't do it without IFI! Bests: Gergely

  8. Norton 6DB weight info

    Dear All, Can anyone help me with the precise weight info of the Norton 6DB flypress? Or tell me if it is the same modell you can find new under the name Norton 6A? (I've found the info of that: it's 355 kg.) Thank you very much! Bests: Gergely

    JAV: If you don't mind very much, please consider that idea stolen. No geographical worries, hopefully Bests: Gergely PS: I'm glad that the carnauba works well!
  12. What did you do in the shop today?

    PVF Al: nice work! I like the small details on it. Now only a thousand tapers more, and you got yourself a gate! Bests: Gergely

    Thanks! For safety reasons only the wine was consumed from the bottles. Safety first Bests: Gergely
  14. What did you do in the shop today?

    Aus, amazing stuff in your picture: both your work and the automobiles. I recently upgraded my show table gear. In Dec and then in March my stuff got so much damage by the rainy weather that I had to stop and think. The new version is totally rain safe, storm safe. It can be dismantle into <3' pieces in less than 10 min and weighs under 40 lbs. Except the four bottom paws that are 15 lbs each. The table surface measures 160 cm x 80 cm. It still lacks a good painting, and I want to change the plastic to some waterproof canvas for better looks and good shade. For comparison I attach a picture of the old table. I liked it, but it weighs the same as the new and has half the surface. (And I can't hide my things from the customers under it.) Bests: Gergely
  15. I'm a dad!

    Congratulations and best wishes to you all, Das! G
