  1. Maybe you are correct, but not as much fun. This stuff is my sudoku.
  2. TP, even w/o muscles I broke it but I think that was more due to the drill sitting out in a field for years and rusting from inside out... Frosty, the collar that moves up and down the threaded rod is chipping out from rust on the inside. Looks great on outside but chips away up at top where the wheel is attached. I need to remove that collar to get a new one machined.

  4. First off, this pic was grabbed off net cause I am at work and cant find a pic on any device I have with me. Now, after five years I have finally gotten the $15 auction find 616 free and spinning. Unfortunately, the top threaded bar and collar( that control the vertical motion) have rusted somewhat so I will have to get new ones machined. Problem is I cant get the collar that connects to the drill shaft to move. Is there something I am missing or am I just not using my manly muscles?

    The first light did fill the room to begin with until the high sulphur smoke burned off and the cole started coking then it started to go out. I will have to light another fire to find out if the blower I am planning on using is good enough by itself. Def keeping my eyes open for stove pipe. Thanks for all the suggestions.

    Thanks a lot bigb. I didnt think it looked that bad and I cant afford much better. Took me 3 years of scrapping/scrounging to make this.

    These are some further pics of the shop. I am using Wonderboard (concrete panels) as a fire retardant in the corner where the forge will be. (Second pic.)

    I understand everyone's apprehension of the frame. The pallets were lag bolted together Then attached to 4x4 posts at the corners. The ironic thing about the city codes is that if I build a "permanent" building I have to follow some strict codes (since the Joplin tornado of '11) A temporary building is not covered under code. When I have some money to put on the roof, a 2x4 will be put across every wall and screwed in to the wall and the 4x4 posts. 2x4s will be used for a roof support. Plywood sheet and then probably tin sheet. I have the plywood already. Cement board for under tile work will be put up in the forge corner to lessen chance of fire. This all being built this way because I dont have 2k for a shed or even 500 for the lumber to build my own.

    These two photos are the first with the four walls up. Been collecting pallets from a Sherwin Williams paint store for about a year now. I ALWAYS asked permission before hauling them home. I used lag bolts to bolt them together in the best pattern I could to get walls approximately the same height. The dimensions came out to 10' x 7' x 10.4' x 8'. So rhomboidal but hey its four walls. The smooth wall in the second picture is covered in some disassembled crates I traded for two years ago. The roof will have to wait until after Christmas but at least the walls are up and I can start doing small things in the mean time. My only cost so far has been less than $50 in screws of various size from deck screws to Lag bolts.

    This is literally tiny compared to the last few finds but here goes. I wondered how common these mini grinders were in this size. The wheel is 2.5" diameter. Got it for free from local feed store along with a tiny Stanley lathe tool and an older wrench of unknown origins.
