  1. Frosty. The new ones need a little poke in the right direction on how to ask a question politely. :-)
  2. I love your handy little bending tool. You say the hooks might not be exciting but I see someone in the shop having fun being a blacksmith making something nice and thats what its all about!
  3. Oh my c-1. Those are very cool!! I wonder how big the guitar player is.
  4. I like it. I can imagine the sound of operating the latch. Is the latch stiff enough so the weight of the handle will not open the latch if the wind is rattling the door?
  5. Congratulations on mounting up great great grandads vise. The family history on it is cool. I have my grandads anvil so I know how you feel. My first vise was an Indian Chief so they mean something special to me.
  6. Nice score Steven on that chief! I believe in the addiction. I have 4 also and very lucky they are all Indian Chiefs. Some call it hoarding but I found them all on CL and got them for very fair prices (100 usd for the 5 1/4 and 60 or less for the others) so I don't feel bad about getting them.
  7. Are you feeling well Joe? You used an angle grinder for that cut. I didn't know you had any power tools :-) I always enjoy your vids. Nice project!
  8. Well done pnut!! Stories like yours are an insperation for all who need to make adjustments in life. And Lorelei Sims is the first blacksmith book I recieved and the good wife gave it to me on Christmas.
  9. Those are nice. Looks like you put alot of work into them
  10. Thats so cool that you found that book. It was produced by the Guild of Metalsmiths in Minnesota back in 90 or 91. At a guild meeting last year the subject for the meeting was that book and the history of it. Some members brought in some of the original pieces pictured in the book. Very cool!! Nice find.
  11. Joe. I have watched all your videos. The anchor project was my favorite!! You are an insperation to smiths that love to not use power tools and do projects the old school way. And forge welding with no flux. Wow. Keep up the good work. Greetings from Minnesota USA :-)
