  1. yes I also had the same idea, with grappling hooks on the wall, thanks for pointing this out
  2. thanks for your valuable suggestions, the wheels cannot be placed due to a question of stability, I have to store heavy objects, but I believe that in the middle shelf that I will put at about 80 cm I will bolt a vice and I will use the same as a service counter to perform chores repair and I will equip it with suitable tools thanks
  3. thanks for your valuable suggestions, sorry if I disturbed you with my question
  4. sorry if I disturb, I should make a big one metal shelf to put my shop in order, I need a very heavy and robust structure, a shelf that I want to make about ninety centimeters high, it will serve as a service counter. some ideas to take as inspiration. what material do i use? dimensions two meters long, two meters wide one meter deep, it should support several quintals and be economic in construction. maybe coin recycled materials, let me know thanks greetings to all
  5. make a virtue of necessity. the need sharpens the ingenuity, we don't make grilled sausages and steaks, we eat baked pasta, parmesan cutlets brought from home, contained in bundles brought from home that's why bundles, bundles that contain food like sack breakfast. all the original Italians, especially the Neapolitans, experts in the art of getting by with little they have and lots of imagination and inventiveness The Ottoman and Balkan yataghan sword/knife
  6. pic nic , scampagnata in the Roman dialect the people who make the picnic call them "fagottari" they bring the food cooked from home and make revel
  7. thanks for the right suggestions, unfortunately I live in the suburbs, you understand that I can't emit combustion fumes, my neighbors, too close to each other, would complain or worse, they would report me to the authorities in charge. , first I went to my uncle who had a mechanical workshop, around me parts of the blacksmiths no longer use the classic coal forge even with gas, now they buy the iron bars and the elements already forged and stamped by the factory, segmantano the they assemble and weld, from blacksmiths they have evolved into welders, they don't even have a blowtorch flame, I have to find an ingenious DIY solution that is home-made and safe and cheap to manage. thanks anyway for the right suggestions. I have to investigate heat treatments, temper annealing, nitriding cementation. Thanks again
  8. thanks for the valuable advice. I have a modest equipment, like steel I use the elliptical sheets of old truck springs, I don't have a forge I have to find a way to make up for it with foirtuna equipment thanks again sorry for the trouble, thank you ..
  9. I did not use the ax with the iron pipe as time passes, I use the one with the yellow handle and the machete to clean the garden of shrubs from bushes that form spontaneously. I had to interrupt the construction of blades. before I went to my uncle who had a machine shop with machine tools and equipment, since he died and the workshop is closed I built a small workshop in my house, but I don't have the comforts of a mechanical workshop. I have a banquet and some tools, so the results are modest. I can't shoot the blades on the anvil. I just cut out the shapes of the blades on sheet metal cuttings and then sharpen and polish them. therefore the result is modest. thanks for the right suggestions
  10. disappointed, right? I'm a real landslide an amateur I have a lot to learn, do I hope to become a master knife maker knife sharpener? in a few centuries maybe and after so much elbow grease fatigue and sweat ... let me know where I'm wrong, thanks, I'm a real recruit, no doubt about it?
  11. I tried to make a machete with a crossbow sheet truck it is very rudimentary and rustic I use it to clean up the soil from the bushy bushes shrubs. I can't make the ergonomic handle ... thanks anyway
  12. hello I would like to try my hand at building a knife. I thought of a kukri I think originally from Nepal or a Yatagan, of Russian origin I think, you would kindly have pictures or drawings, what material do you advise me to use, have some friend friends built these specimens? I just a few rudimentary machetes. if I can I would like to make a big bowie knife later, which they tell me is an indestructible knife. thanks
  13. the whole place is 3.70 meters, calculates that I am 180 cm tall therefore, the walls are weak, I would like to find simple robust and cheap materials, maybe scaffolding pipes, what do you say how would you do spending a little money, but realizing a robust structure ? thanks for your opinion
  14. hello I should make an internal mezzanine in my shop, I have two parallel brick walls I would like to place on it the beams on which to apply the platform. wall dimensions: a wall is 2.20 meters long, 1.95 meters high and 30 centimeters wall thickness the second wall is 1.85 meters high and 18 centimeters thick, the distance between the walls or width is 2.50 meters, as I realize that I use material, that load and capacity I could load on it thanks ...
